Six years passed away and Ritu is married to Gautam and she is pregnant now. The doctor advises Ritu not to think about her past as it is unhealthy for Ritu as well as the yet to be born child. Despite the warning of the doctor, Ritu goes to a place where she lost her son. There, she meets a person in an injured state, who informs her that he saw a child and the kidnapper. Before he explains, he gets killed. What happened to Ritu? Did she get her son back? Watch the film to know the rest.
All the stars did their job exceptionally well. Keerthy Suresh is perfect as usual with varieties of expressions. However, right from the beginning, her face shadows some sadness. Although there is a reason behind her character's grief, she is not seen happy even when she lives without worries. Lingaa is perfect with his role.
The movie starts on a slow note. The cinematography is better. Music by Santhosh disappoints, except in a very few scenes. The artists are finely picked. But, the story has a lot of logical loopholes. There is no solid reason for the divorce and the remarriage. The reason why the kidnap happened didn’t satisfy. The director should have tried with a better screenplay and should have included logical reasons. However, he has tried some twists in between to confuse the audience.
What’s Not There?
Except for a women-centric topic and the performance, nothing impresses much. Although certain scenes, make the audience to concentrate the mobile screen for the next twist, this is not Keerthy’s cup of tea!
