Story: Karuna (Vishal) leaves the Indian army because of his anger management issues. He is forced to borrow a loan from a bank with forged documents to get his sister married. Soon after the approval of the loan from the bank, the entire money in the account vanishes.
As Karuna starts tracking it, he encounters White Devil, a master hacker and finds that White Devil is the reason for some cyber crimes. What did Karuna do then forms the story of the movie?
Performances: Vishal has played a role that is different from what he played in the past. Vishal is impressive as an army officer and came up with an appreciable performance. Samantha, on the other side, is good regarding the performance and glamour. The chemistry between Vishal and Samantha is perfect.
Robo Shankar delivers good laughs in the movie. Delhi Ganesh has a commendable and sizable presence in the movie. Arjun is another big revelation in the movie. He has come up with his best in this film by being a composed baddie in the movie. The other actors like Kaali Venkat, Vincent Asokan, and Madhusoodhanan made their presence felt.
Technicalities: The writer has come up with impressive characterization for each character. The dialogues are perfect in most of the scenes. The cinematographer George C Williams adds spice to the storyline with his lighting and camera skills.
The editor Ruben has co-operated with DOP to give life to the film. Yuvan Shankar Raja Sir has delivered a delightful background score for this film. The songs have come out well too. The sound design is impressive. The production values maintained by Vishal Film Factory are lavish.
Verdict: The movie Abhimanyudu will enlighten the blind usage of the social media tools even by literates and then get involved in cyber-related crimes without their knowledge. The film has many exaggerated aspects of specific issues, but the makers did proper work in executing them in the best possible way.
The movie is going to educate the masses and all the others about the safer and secured financial transactions. It is good that the makers have come up with such a contemporary subject.
The first half of the film is engaging and the second half raises the bar with exciting scenes. With fantastic plotline and brilliant performances, the movie is not to be missed entertainer.
