This is a pukka commercial film with nail biting stunts. The narration adopted by the director is superb. All the ingredients of a commercial film with jerks for the audience are the current requirement.
The film Durgi has a hairline story. The action takes the center stage. Yet there are some logic missing. That’s Ok for a debutant. The first half and second half are interdependent.
Malashri donning the title role has worked hard and it is Kalabhavan Mani takes the major share. Raghuvaran looks like a ladies finger vegetable fried. He has not added any extra amount of support to the film. Avinash is once again convincing. Doddanna is tolerable, Jaishree needed some more opportunity to her caliber, Ashish Vidyarthi for a change gives good account of himself, Hamsalekha gives preference to instruments to highlight rather than the lyrics, and film has splendid photography and of course good editing.
Durgaparameshwari (Malashri) takes revenge on the killers of his sister and father in her own style. In the first half she pretends as a dumb lady and goes on rampage and the second half gives who she is and why she is doing all these killings. Finally after putting down the bad elements she goes back to her village with her mother.
The renowned banner Ramu Enterprises gives yet another action extravaganza. But we have objection to the cutting of the head of a child which is doing rituals on the river side? Can the director show it to his kids? It is highly intolerable. When you handle kids at such juncture you have to be very careful. Even if you want to the height of gory there are so many ways director please keep away the kids. You miss the children and female audience to the theatre if you continue to do so.
There are child abuse and atrocities. What you have shown on a female child (balatkar) is heard everywhere. But the rolling of child’s head for no mistake of it is inexcusable.
This is a fine malasal movie aimed at action lovers.
