With her mass performance, she proves her versatility, living up to the title of Lady Superstar. Unni Mukundan appears for a brief time, but makes an impact on his measured Performance. Jayaram looks menacing, as the evil antagonist and perfects the Villainy With his sharp and powerful expressions. Asha Sarath is adequate, while the rest of the cast is completely overshadowed by the towering screen presence of Anushka.
S Thaman gives a haunting background score, generating necessary thrills, and his Mandhara is a soothing melody that's hum-worthy. Mathie's Cinematography is impressive and captures the stunning Bhaagamathie bungalow in all its glory, and special credits to the VFX team and art director Ravinder for their hard work that shows in every frame. After impressing with his debut flick Pilla Zamindar, director G Ashok had lost touch with back to back failures, Sukumarudu and Chitrangada, following which he has waited for almost 5 years to make Bhaagamathie. Now, he has bounced back with a taut thriller.
Promoted right from the beginning as a social thriller, Bhaagamathie has simple plot, but is taken to a different level, thanks to the powerhouse performer Anushka Shetty, who solely shoulders Bhaagamathie, displaying extreme levels of variation between the two shades of the character, and roars on screen, even Surpassing her Arundhati and Rudramadevi acts with her performance in Bhaagamathie.
With some interesting sequences in the first half, leading to the stunning interval block, Ashok delivers a tight screenplay in the second half, filled with ample doses of thrills and twists, and able support of Mathie's top-notch Cinematography, and Thaman's scintillation BGM, Bhaagamathie clears the hurdles and becomes a winner. All said Bhaagamathie is a perfect comeback for Ashok and another testimony to Anushka's acting skills.
