After a long gap yesteryear actress Raasi made her comeback with this thriller drama Lanka, directed by Sri Muni, which has hit the theaters today on 21st April. Let’s see the storyline:
Story : Swathi (Ina Saha) is an Malayalam Superstar and award winning actress who comes to Hyderabad and joins debut director Sai (Sai Ronak) to work on a short movie. They rent a house belonging to Rebecca (Raasi), who is expert in telepathy. The things become tough for Swathi when Rebecca starts troubling her through Telepathy. The twist arises in the story when one day Swathi goes missing and cop arrest Rebecca. Then enters another key character Sarath (Sijju) stated as the person whom Rebecca loves once. What is the purpose behind Rebecca using telepathy to disturb Swathi? What happened with Swathi? What is the role of Sarath? To get these answers, one should watch the movie on silver screen.
Performance: Raasi delivered her best and she carrieed out the role of Rebecca with great ease but her queer looking eyes, costumes and way of dialogues delivery did not leave any good impact. Her performance during the climax was highlighted. Ina Saha looked good but became fail to drag the attention of audiences. Sai Ronak did not get anything to do in the movie. Supreet was good as the strict cop. Sathya, Sathyam Rajesh, Nalla Venu and others are just filler the cast.
Technical: The basic plot of the movie is interesting that deals with Telepathy. Producers Naman Dinesh and Vishnu Kumar maintain good production values. The background score by Sri Charan Pakala is good. Cinematography work is good and the seriousness and the tense scenes have shown well. Karthika Srinivas's editing could have been much crisper. Editor should use the scissor to chop unnecessary and dragged scenes. Though the story-line line of the movie is good but execution is horrible. There are number of illogical scenes that spoil the entertainment level.
Analysis: The movie has good plot-line but the telepathy concept did not go well with the film flow. The first half is good in compare of second half. The interval bang is impressive but the director becomes fail to maintain the curiosity in the second half. Too many subplots and unwanted twists spoil the entertainment level. The narration of the film is very slow. Sri Muni picks up a highly complex subject but fails to understand the weight of it completely. With a new comer cast, Lanka looks amateur in terms of engaging performance.
