Anukoni Athidhi Telugu Movie Reviews: Athiran’s Telugu dubbed version titled Anukoni Athidhi is out and the audience is super excited for this Fahadh Faasil and Sai Pallavi starrer.

Fahadh Faasil and Sai Pallavi have acted together in the Malayalam film Athiran. The film directed by Vivek released in 2019 and critically, it received an immense response. It is the Telugu-dubbed version of Malayalam psychological thriller Athiran with Sai Pallavi and Fahadh Faasil in the lead roles. Malayalam thrillers, including recent Drishyam 2, have stunned us and set a new benchmark. 

Anukoni Athidhi Performances

Fahadh Faasil does a good job as investigator. He acts so naturally. Sai Pallavi, as usual, delivers fine performance. She often gets sidelined though the story revolves around her character. She has limited screen presence in the first half and very little dialogues on the whole. Atul Kulkarni is alright as greedy mental doctor. Prakash Raj appears in a guest appearance. Other actors were confined to limited roles.

One of the Twitter users wrote, “Mind-bending pshycho thriller Simple line with thrilling screenplay Excellent performances of #FahadhFaasil & @Sai_Pallavi92.” Anukoni Athidi also features Prakash Raj, Atul Kulkarni, and Renji Panicker in the key roles.

It was reported to be inspired by the 2014 movie Stonehearst Asylum. 

Anukoni Athidhi Analysis

At the beginning of the film, we are introduced to the mental asylum/palace as scary and those who came before hadn’t returned. Dr Benjamin is referred as dangerous. But this build-up is not justified. Villain just fades out as it is dominated by Fahadh. There are no enough scenes to show a strong villain. The verbal threats are insufficient and inefficient. This is one of the major failures of the film.

One doesn’t understand why the protagonist gets saved by Villain’s man at first and later attempts to murder. The murder attempts on Fahadh Faasil look silly as he easily gets away and still returns to same palace. Initially, the film seems to be interesting. But as it progresses, it fails to engage and fails to keep us hooked. There are handful of thrills. But these are just for ‘namesake’. They lack the thrill.

From the male protagonist to the female protagonist to majority of the cast has some psychological problem. Only villain Benjamin (Athul Kulkarni), his assistant Revathi and investigator (Prakash Raj) are excused by the filmmaker. The whole film is set in the palace which is shown as mental asylum.

The scenes between the other patients of this asylum also falls short. What works in the film are Fahad and Sai Pallavi’s acting. Sai Pallavi impresses with some kick-ass stunts. Some scenes here and there are interesting. The climax twist is good though it is predicted. But loose ends in the film, some missing logics make this an average watch.

OTTs are flooded with good content of late. There’s a huge competition to deliver interesting content on OTT space. The viewers always have option to switch to better content unlike in cinemas. On the whole, Anukoni Athidhi fails to thrill. The audience need not invite this guest.
