Anaamika Movie Review


A bomb blast in Hyderabad’s People Plaza kill hundreds of people which forces a change in state home minister. Over a course of time everyone forgets the incident and moves on. And in a separate event, Anamika (Nayantara) comes down to Hyderabad from America in search of her husband, Ajay (Harsha Vardhan Rane). SI Saradhi (Vaibhav) starts digging in to the case only to find the case leading to some unpredictable twists and mysterious deaths. All of sudden a twist take place which leads to a stunning turn in the story and a crucial evidence. What is it? and How it helped to solve the case forms the rest of the story.

Star Performance:

– Nayantara was at her usual best in the film, it is tailor made role for her. She did her best especially in Climax Scene.

– Vaibhav got a good role after a long time and he performed well.

– Pasupathi did well as a Sicncere Police officer.

– Naresh was okay as bad politician.

– Thagubothu Ramesh has got no scope to make you laugh. You can consider him as a Character Artist.

Technical Team:

– MM Keeravani’s background music is one of the major asset and has given life to the movie.

– Sekhar Kammula took the basic subject of Kahaani. He tried to narrate the story with his own context and twists and he was successful in adapting Kahaani as per Telugu nativity.

– Yandamuri Veerendranath Screenplay is good.

– Vijay C. Kumar Cinematography is good.

– Editing should have been crispier.

What is Good?

  • Thrilling Scond Half
  • Screenplay
  • Climax
  • Keeravani Background Music
  • Nayanatara

What is Bad?

  • Slow Narration in First half
  • No Comedy Scenes for Regular Audience


Anamika is not a Scene to Scene remake of Kahaani. Sekhar Kammula’s gripping narration and Keeravani’s music are main strength’s. Though first half tests your patience, second half of Anaamika makes it worth a watch. Don’t miss this suspense thriller which is on par with its original. On the whole this movie may do good business in A Centers, we have to wait and see how this movie will perform in B, C Centers.

Verdict: Watch Anamika for its refreshing appeal. If you have watched Kahaani, invariable comparisons will result in disappointment with the adaptation.
