Tripura movie reviewApr 21, 2016 11:38 AM IST
After the success of Geetanjali, director Raaja Kiran is back with yet another suspense thriller Tripura. Starring the actress Swathi and Naveen Chandra, this film has hit the screens today. Let’s see how the film turns out to be.
Tripura (Swathi Reddy) lives happily in a village. Naveen Chandra (Naveen Chandra) used to imagine about his wife in his dreams. When he sees Tripura, he falls in love with her and marries her.
They started their life happily in a new house in a city. But, the couple faces some problems due to the presence of a ghost in their house. How they overcome those troubles? Will they able to live happily? Forms the rest of the story.
Swathi is a good actress and does a neat job in the lead role. This character is different from the bubbly characters that Swathi usually plays. She has put on some weight to suit the character of a married woman. Naveen Chandra appears confident on screen. But he needs to work a lot on his histrionics and body. Rao Ramesh is alright and adds a bit of suspense to the proceedings.Pooja Chandran has nothing much to do in her role and is hardly visible on screen till pre-climax. Saptagiri gets a meaty role and he does his best to keep us entertained. Shakalaka Shankar and Jaya Prakash Reddy are okay in their cameos.
Director Raaja Kiran should have tried something different from his first attempt. He has once again attempted to scare the audience with a dose of comedy. He added drama, romance and some other commercial elements to make it look different from Geetanjali. Despite maintaining the suspense till the penultimate scenes, Tripura fails to entertain due to bad screenplay and dated narration.
Ravikumar Sana has done his camerawork to an acceptable level and Kamran’s music lacks consistency except for Swathi’s introduction song. Even Background Score was loud and not upto the mark. The editing could have been better. The VFX used for this film is simply b grade stuff and even unnecessary in some sequences. Production Values of “Crazy Media” are alright.
Plus Points :
Minus Points :
Director Raaja Kiran has not worked on the script keeping the dream concept in mind. There are many such subjects of spooky revenge and he has not able to catch the freshness in sequences. It is not good enough for a film to rely on lead actors and thin storyline for the audience to come to theatres. There should be tight screenplay and feel good narration, which was lacking in the case of Tripura. On the whole, Tripura - quite an impressive storyline is vitiated by an unimpressive screenplay.
