Bollywood Crazies Opinion: Annaatthe movie story is weak and old school formula of brother and sister bond. Even, the dialogues are mainly typical that people have already heard in lot of movies. Rajinikanth has tried his best but this film didn’t got its hold due to its weak writing and lethargic screenplay. The emotional depth in this film is missing which is why it didn’t got connected with the audience. Rajini sir did look amazing in this film but his role overshadowed by the weak execution. Only, the action scenes of Rajinikanth sir is something that audience would love to watch. More screen time has been given to Keerthy but her character was so dramatic that audience got bored and might have compared with daily soap operas. The music is good enough to hold your ears for long. The cinematography and editing is quite ok. Overall, you don’t feel to laugh even on funny scenes, that’s what is the problem with this film. The makers have left the talented actors underutilized in this film. The major problem here is the screen time of 2 hours 43 minutes, which is too long to test audience patience.
The story, screenplay, writing and direction has been done by Siva. The story has been cowritten by Aadhi Narayana. This movie has been produced by Kalanithi Maran. The cinematography has been done by Vetri and the musical score given by D. Imman. The editing work handled by Ruben.
Annaatthe movie budget hasn’t been revealed by the makers but it could reportedly be around 55 to 58 crores maximum.
Altogether, Annaatthe is a failed attempt by the makers which will not work on a big time in Cinema Theaters across the world.
Last Word: Watch it only if you are die-hard fans of Rajinikanth otherwise opt for other releases.
Bollywood Crazies Ratings: Annaatthe Review: FAIL (30 percent out of 100).
