After scoring few disasters, Ravi Babu is trying his luck by coming up with a sequel of his previous super hit film, Avunu. Avunu 2 has hit the screens today. But did it repeat the magic? Read the review to know.
Avunu 2 Story
The story takes off with the concupiscent ghost, which follows
and her husband (Harsha Vardhan Rane) even to their
new home. Director Ravi Babu has tried to induce few more
characters and add some substance by dealing with too many concepts
like Schizophrenia, The Philip Experiment and Thermal Photography.
Is it Captain Raju (Ghost) who is causing the disturbances in the
house or somebody else? You got to watch it on-screen.
P.S: Don't fall for the trap by seeing the terminology
Poorna has done her job brilliantly though she has nothing much
to do other than screaming her lungs out and have a petrified look
all the time. Harshavardhan Rane has got a good chance to improve
his acting skills on a trial and error basis. Since the film has
nothing great to offer, he can once again check his luck by adding
more practice to his kitty. Nikitha and Sanjana managed to pass
Director Ravi Babu merely want to en-cash the good will of
Avunu to make a mediocre film like Avunu 2. The
film lacks the needed anxiety in the script itself. The film has
been extremely loyal to its prequel, Avunu, in its first half as it
simply has the same scenes from Avunu. The director took
too much of time to connect the stories and falls flat in creating
any interest in the audience.
Camera work by Bhupesh has been extremely good and he has added
the much needed feel for the film with unusual camera angles. The
background music felt to be loud at times. Production values by
Suresh Productions and Flying Frog
Productions were coherent.
Looks like Ravi Babu has been inspired by too many English films like Paranormal Activity, The Entity and The Haunted. Leave alone sending chills down the spine, Avunu 2 did not even succeed in making the audience sit on the edge of the seat. On the whole, Avunu 2 can be termed as an another substandard sequel made in Telugu, just by banking on its previous hit version.
