Abhiyum Anuvum Review & Rating
Abhiyum Anuvum depicts an intense love story raising a valuable question on our social and moral ethics directed by cinematographer turned director BR Vijayalakshi has Tovino Thomas as Abhi and Pia Bajpai as Anu. Tovino is making his Kollywood debut with this movie by portraying the character Abhi, a Software Engineer and Pia Bajpai's Anu, a lively organic farmer who plays Tovino's love interest. The movie kicks off when these two gets attracted to each other and decides to marry and the core of Abhiyum Anuvum lies when their parents reveal a shocking truth that creates tensions in their life and Abhi makes a strong decision. The movie revolves around the choices of the couple and the survival of their relationship. BR Vijalakshmi ropes in some of the finest actors, Suhasini, Rohini, Prabhu to do play the key supporting roles in Abhiyum Anuvum.
Vijayalakshmi packs the movie with a plot that is intense and complex. Lined with the new age romance situations the screenplay at first place is attractive. Her characterisation of the tutor roles looks fit but the space given to them in most of the sequences is seemed to be unbalanced and artificial. Tovino Thomas does a good job of portraying the Software Engineer Abhi and projects very calm as well as very complex emotions. Though the lip sync in delivering the dialogues fails in a few sequences, he covers it with emoting the right expression whereas Pia's Anu hits it perfect for the audience. Anu's emotional drive and journey in Abhiyum Anuvum is one of the key highlights that makes the audience wait until the end. The director with her years of experience as a cinematographer and writer has made Abhiyum Anuvum a good craft. Unexpected twists and turns, emotional scenes and performances of the actors elevate and project Abhiyum Anuvum to another level which is entertaining and thought-provoking at the same time.
Udhayabanu Maheswaran's writing in the movie lacks a constant pace and creates a few scenes which are felt very artificial. Reaching towards the climax, Abhiyum Anuvum looks more emotional and the writer has succeeded in spacing the powerful and relevant dialogues that suit the core of Abhiyum Anuvum. Prabhu, Rohini and Suhasini with their exceptional performance take over the crucial points of Abhiyum Anuvum, that tried to essay a complicated story about love, relationships, surrogacy, incest. The cinematography by Akhilan is commendable but the Background music and songs were felt average.
Final Verdict: Abhiyum Anuvum is intricate, emotional and an average romantic flick that tries to explore social and moral ethics.
