A classic, A Gem of a movie... Thank you Ravi Babu !!!
24 July 2014 | by RebelRavindraSee all my reviews

Avunu is fantastic. Clean story narrated with technical advancements.

Usage of Sensors is groundbreaking. These sensors kept us glued to our seats and raised that terror. Using static camera's instead of running around the character was worthy. We could get a whole different perspective.

Performances by Harsha & Poorna are amazing, Though there is a parallel plot which is inspired from "The Sixth Sense", it has nothing much to do with the actual plot. The concept of spirit, Its hunger for lust ,needing a human form and possessing a man to do so made lot of sense.

The interval bang is horrifying. I was shouting when that thing was running. I would have literally wet my pants and eventually would have had a heart seizure if that had happened in my life. That scene scared the crap out of my life. Ravi Babu's technical brilliance thrilled me like never before.

I feel the story is not yet concluded, may expect a sequel

GO watch AVUNU for its technical brilliance, good plot, Horrifying thrills and amazing direction by Ravi Babu..

10/10 .. Will definitely have multiple viewings.
