Anamika is a brilliant suspense thriller and actress Nayantara's sterling performance is the main attraction in it. Shekhar Kammula's engrossing screenplay, MM Keeravani's melodious songs and terrific background score, Vijay C Kumar's amazing camera angles and a few emotional moments are other highlights of the movie. The slow-paced narration in the first half and a few unconvincing gaps are the big drawbacks of the film.
Sekhar Kammula has taken the original story from Hindi film Kahaani and made a few major changes like pregnant heroine to normal one and addition of a sex-starved CI in its Telugu version Anamika. The director has done these alteration to suit the taste of the local audience, but he has made sure that they will not affect the main theme of the film.
His narration in the first half of Anamika is very slow and bores the audience, but the movie picks up the speed after the interval bang. The narration is very interesting and racy in the second half. Several interesting twists and turns in the story make you sit on the edge of your seat and watch the film biting your nail. The climax is brilliant and sure to impress the viewers those who have not watched Kahaani.
