Abhinetri Movie Review – Watchable Horror Comedy Flick

Rating: 2.5/5

Critic Rating: (2.5/5)

Shooting and completing a movie is very tedious and energy consuming process which at times makes the makers less interested on that film. If making it in a single language is tedious and energy consuming. how would it be like to make it in three different languages?? Answer is so simple. It’s an impossible and very much time taking task. Director Vijay made it possible and made a movie titled Abhinetri in just 60 days in three different languages. He proved that anything can be done perfectly in certain time given when we go with perfect planning. This trilingual movie is titled as Abhinetri in Telugu which stars Thamannah Bhatia, Prabhu deva and Sonusood. Let’s see how it works on us!!

Krishna (Prabhudeva) is an employee lives in Mumbai in a corporate company. As he hails from a tiny village he always wanted to marry a girl who is more of like posh and westernized by which he thinks he can gain some respect and social status in his village. He ends up marrying Devi (Tamannaah Bhatia) , a village girl due to his family pressure. He returns back to Mumbai with her and he tries to hide it with his friends and neighbours about Devi and his marriage. He tries a lot to send her back to his village but fails. Suddenly she is possessed by Ruby who committed suicide in the apartment they are living. What happened to Ruby?? How Krishna finally solves his problems and settle his marriage forms the rest of the story.

Cast and Performance

Thamannah Bhatia is the showstopper in this Abhinetri. She has given a fantastic performance as Devi and possessed Ruby. She shines with her dances and moves. She looks super gorgeous on screen. Prabhudeva is back on Telugu screen after a very long time and is delight to fans and people to watch him dance on screen. He is equally good as Krishna. Sonusood is fantastic and had given the required for the role to succeed and connect to the audience. Sapthagiri is humorous and is highly successful in bringing out laughs. Murli Sharma, Prudhvi and Amy Jackson are fine. Others did to the extent they are given.

Abhinetri has a very simple storyline and it seems like it had been tried many times. Screenplay is good. Dialogues are okay and humorous.

Technical Departments

Music composed by Sajid-Wajid and other composers are okay and Chill Maar is good. Background score composed by Gopi Sunder is nice. Cinematography by Manush Nandan is fantastic and captured the mood very well. Editing is okay and should have been more racy and crispy. Dances and movements are well choreographed. Production values are superb.


  • Tamannah Bhatia as Devi
  • Chill Maar Song
  • Situational comedy
  • Cinematography by Manush Nandan


  • Predictable and routine story
  • Music

This movie begins with a flashback and goes on a nice tempo. Every poster and trailer of the film gave us a insight that it is of a horror comedy genre and sadly there is nothing much from this genre and it disappoints the audience very much. Even laughs are not more nor the horror elements. The horror part and suspense continues till the character of Ruby is revealed. After this it hardly makes us experience fear. This movie has some good and well composed dance moments from the leads and is enjoyable highly. Director A L Vijay tried to tell the story he had in his own way and it doesn’t entertain much. Sometimes this movie makes audience crave for some comedy or horror element. The best part is that the narrative is so simple and straightforward without giving any room for confusion. To summarise, this Abhinetri is a watchable horror comedy flick.
