So much so, Dinesh is joined in an asylum. What exactly is the problem with Dinesh ? What is his past ? Who is Jayalakshmi ? Will he again become a normal person ? Watch the film for the answers.
Vijay Antony knows his limitations as an actor and he once again impresses. He gives a subtle performance and emotes well. Arundati Nair also gets to play a good role.
The art work of the film is brilliant and so is the cinematography. Vijay Antony's songs may not have impressed music lovers, but his background score is one of the major highlights of the film. The production values of Vijay Antony Film Corporation are good. The story is fresh and screenplay in the first half is brilliant.
Story and screenplay
As expected, Vijay Antony has once again come up with a very fresh subject. Director Pradeep Krishnamoorthy's story is good. The first half is very engaging and has a very good suspense factor. Even the second half takes off well. But once the mystery unravels in the second half, the film gets a little bit slow and some may not like the way the climax is executed. The film has good performances and brilliant technical aspects. The background score and art work are major highlights. All in all, 'Bethaludu' is a good suspense thriller.
Gripping first half, ok second half
