Dhanush's latest flick "Anegan" directed by KV Anand has opened to highly-positive reviews.
The movie is now seen as one of the best from Dhanush and much appreciated for the way the story is narrated. The cinematography, the art department and costumes have also been acknowledeged for their effort in detailing as well as for their precision.
The other star cast of the movie comprising Karthik, Amyra Dastur, Aishwarya Devan, Ashish Vidyarthi, Lena, Mukesh Tiwari, Thalavasal Vijay and Vinay Prasad have also played their roles well.
Here are the reviews of 'Anegan" by critics:
KV Anand's flair for effective storytelling, with accurate use of commercial elements is spot on. Amyra Dastur opens up proceedings for us right from the very first frame and her smiling face is all over the place. The opening Burma sequences are strong highlights of the movie, with some nice art work involved in these segments. KV Anand has been keen on having special introduction scenes for Dhanush - thrice in the movie as he is portrayed in three different stories with different makeovers.
Dhanush once again excels in all his roles. As expected, he carries the entire film and has given his 100 percent in doing so. Amyra Dastur has done a decent job as a fresher and has managed to impress with her almost perfect lip-sync. Aishwarya Devan is another debutant in the film. She plays an interesting role and has done her job brilliantly. Yesteryear actor Karthik doesn't have enough screen space which comes across as a surprise and yet he impresses with his charm. Ashish Vidyarthi has once again delivered the goods.
Though there are several actors and too many characterizations, everyone has adequate importance but it is Dhanush and Amyra ruling the roost right from the start. Dhanush, who is considered as the all-India star already, has proved his acting skills beyond belief in every role that he plays in Anegan. Amyra, on the other hand, seems to be a seasoned actress despite making her debut. Karthik, Aashish Vidyarthi, Mukesh Tiwari and others have all performed well.
Film by KV Anand, so rest assured for the visuals, as they are undoubtedly world class. Credit goes to Om Prakash to have highlighted each era with the complimenting tinge of colour, and for recreating the heroine's dreams as how it really is dreamt. Given the multilayered story, the screenplay takes many twists and confusing turns. But in the end, that's what ensures to glue you to the seat. With mystery at every level, the screenplay makes you want to wait and watch. Thanks to Anthony for putting it all together crisply.
