What is bad: Kodi Ramakrishna’s obsession on villainy should be reduced. Pasupati in the second half is given way too much rope. And Shyam had to pay the price in the form of an abrupt climax. How one wishes that Arundhati, puts Pasupati through the wringer, just that little bit longer. The stage was all set. But the time just wasn’t there.
Me Thinks: Arundhati has a storyline as old as time itself. It is told by a storyteller with a perfect understanding of the talent and technology. Good actors have given great performances. Go to the theatre suspend your sense of belief, and let Shyam take you on a cinematic ride the likes of which you haven’t experienced for a long time.
Tailpiece: Adventures involving the ancient, the occult and the exotic are much superior to those involving modern cars and guns and cops. Go ahead indulge in one!
