Bhaagamathie Review & Story Plot:

Bhaagamathie Movie Story:

Bhaagamathie tells the story of an honest Indian Administrative Service officer Chanchala Played by Anushka, who is busy doing welfare works. During one of her visits to a village, she gets attracted to young leader Shakthi (Unni Mukundan) and falls in love with him. The twist in the tale is she lands in jail for some reason.

Some influential politicians occupy a palatial bungalow, which is haunted by the spirit of a lady. They get Bhaagamathie released from jail and put her in this haunted house. What happens next forms the crux of the story.

Anushka Shetty has really let her hair down while playing the character possessed by an ancient spirit. She had played such a role in Arundhati that made her a formidable force in the industry. But, her dramatic performance as a vengeful spirit in Bhaagamathie seems to be on a whole other level.

Bhaagamathie Movie Review:

Bhaagamathie is not an out and out horror/thriller. It has more layers to the story, that unveil towards the end. But the film takes an outdated formulaic route that doesn’t offer any new experience to the audience. Still, the twist in the climax might be surprising for a section of the audience, who might have expected an exorcism-type ending. The dialogues are rather old-fashioned, and the writing team could have worked better on that.

The movie has strong visuals and Anushka as Bhagamathie performed really well in the twenty-minute portion in second half. Director G Ashok has made the film with a unique story and UV Creations has spent adequate budget for VFX to provide best visual experience for audiences. But it’s also a film that finds an interesting way to address socio-political issues within the realms of horror-thriller genre and goes into a zone which other films hardly explore.

Bhaagamathie Movie Rating: 3/5


Koduri‏ @koduri526 – Overall #Bhagamathie good movie #AnushkaShetty performance @MusicThaman bgm. Don’t go thinking its a horror movie there is little bit horror here and there but main plot is a political thriller Cine Photography and direction good screenplay little bit slow in few scenes.
