Read: Saithan Movie Review
Bethaludu is a much-awaited psychological thriller movie and it is the dubbed version of Tamil film Saithan. The movie is based on Stieg Larsson's novel The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and debutante director Pradeep Krishnamoorthy has written the screenplay in collaboration with Joe D Cruz and Karthik Krishna.
The story of Bethaludu is about a software professional (Vijay Antony), who is in search of mysterious woman Jayalakshmi (Arundhati Nair). It deals with his struggles between his past life and reality. The audience say that the film has a brilliant script, which is the biggest strength of the movie. Pradeep Krishnamoorty makes viewers sit on edge of the seat and watch the proceedings.
Vijay Antony has delivered a brilliant performance, which is the highlight of Bethaludu. Arundathi Nair has got good scope for performance and she has done justice to her role. She is another attraction of the movie. Charuhasan, Meera Krishnan, YG Mahendra, Siddhartha Shankar, Kitty, Kamal Krishna, Aadukalam Murugadoss and Alisha Abdullah have done justice to their roles and are assets of the film, say the audience.
Bethaludu has been produced by Fatima Vijay Antony under the banner Vijay Antony Film Corporation and it has superb production values. Vijay Anthony's amazing background score, Pradeep Kalipuriath's brilliant picturisation and superb visual effects are the big attractions on the technical front, say the audience.
We bring you some viewers' verdict on the film shared on Twitter and Facebook. Here is the live update of Bethaludu movie review by audience:

#Bethaludu / #Saithan is strictly average. First half is a little bit engaging but the latter part is quite opposite. There is neither a strong point nor a good suspense factor to make the movie worth watching. #Bicchagadu records are safe

#Bethaludu 1st half is very well narrated with suspense.After short flashback film's crime element is nt told effectively.Climax disappoints
#Bethaludu - An interesting short film idea dragged long enough to make you feel schizophrenic. Just glad it's over.

First half good , interval twist nice #Bethaludu
