Raj, Baby Keerthana
|Story - Screenplay - Direction
Maniratnam's "Amrutha" has been released
in Telugu all over and unlike his previous films
its been a very low profile release. With hardly
any expectations when one sees a film and if it is
well made than its a real pleasure to watch such
movies. So is the case of "Amrutha"'s
story which has been very well handled by the ace
would have been a classic movie if not for the near bad
climax which ended with a lot of melodrama.
The film opens in Sri Lanka where JD Chakravarthy and Shyamala
(Nandita Das) get married and it so happens that the
ethnic turmoil in Sri Lanka forces Nandiata Das to leave
the island while she is pregnant and she lands in
Rameshwaram where she delivers a baby girl at a refugee
camp and her love for her motherland forces her to go back
leaving the baby at the Red Cross.
Then the next scene is Srinivas (Madhavan), his wife Indira
(Simran) along with his two children having adopted
Amrutha (Baby Keerthana).
Madhavan is a revolutionary writer leading a very happy
life with his family and then it so happens that one fine
day he reveals the true identity of Amrutha to her and
then onwards Amrutha starts pondering about her past and
ultimately her anxiety forces Madhavan to go to Sri Lanka
to see her real mother.
Will Amrutha see her mother who left her 8 years back?
Will Madhavan succeed in taking her to the war throne
Lankan terrains? Is Nandita Das still alive?.....Well all
these answers are awaiting at the theatres near you.
Maniratnam for sure is gonna take you for a breath-taking
visual ride through Sri Lanka.
The first half of the movie is very lively while the
second half towards the end loses the phase and the ending
is left desired for more. 'Amrutha' is a mix of
"Bombay", "Roja". The find of the
movie is 'Amrutha' herself who has given a very memorable
performance. (Baby Keerthana is the daughter of Seetha
,Telugu heroine) Madhavan is quite serious while Simran
also come up with a down to earth performance. AR.
Rehman's music like always is bound to catch up slowly
