Tripura Movie Review: Dragging But Entertaining

Subscribe to Filmibeat

At times South cinema is hugely banking on horror comedies, yet another film from the same genre, Tripura released today, starring Swathi Reddy and Naveen Chandra in the lead. Read the review to know if it manages to pull off the hit formula. 



Tripura Story:

The story tracks to the life of a village girl, Tripura (Swathi Reddy), who sees the future through dreams. She meets Chandra (Naveen Chandra) and eventually get married to him to kick-start a new life, moving to the city. But what is troubling her from having a happy life? What role does Eesha (Pooja) play in Chandra and Tripura's life? You got to unleash the threads in theaters. 


Swathi Reddy has excelled in the role of a matured woman, which is totally contrary to her image. Though her voice was a little amateur in some of the key scenes, she managed to pull it off with her acting skills. Naveen Chandra was at ease and was successful in inching the curiosity on his character. Pooja Ramachandra, though had a limited role, was good enough. Saptagiri takes home all the claps and cheers with his funny traits. 

Technical Aspects & Analysis:

Director Raj Kiran, who managed to score a hit with Geetanjali, seems to have stuck deep in formula. Touted to be a horror thriller, Tripura is largely boring because of its routine story. The director vested a lot of time in establishing the characters and has taken the support of comedians to fill up the vacuum, which again was very mediocre. The story unleashes only in the last reels and the flow of the film was a bumpy ride. However, few twists here and there, balances the film greatly. Music by Kamaran failed to create any interest. Performances of the entire cast deserves a mention, as they played a major role in enhancing the product. However, the major complaint we have about the film is, it is barely frightening and we think it doesn't fall into horror genre. 


If you are a sucker for horror comedies, Tripura can easily go well with you. Though the movie was a little sloppy, it manages to entertain the audience. However, Swathi's hat-trick hit after Swamy Ra Ra and Karthikeya, becomes doubtful.
