Amaravathi is an edge-of-the-seat thriller with the plot of a hypnotist villain snatching babies from the wombs of pregnant women and revelation about whodunit coming out in police investigations.
Suddenly, babies are being snatched from pregnant women by an unknown villain. Nine bleeding women who lost their pregnancy join the hospital.
Police officers Venkat (Ravi Babu) and Kiran (Gadde Sindhura) conduct investigations into this strange cases of disappearance of yet to be born babies. The police inquiry identifies Seenu (Nandamuri Tarakaratna) to have some connection with this case. Venkat is married to Latha (Sneha) who is pregnant.
Will Lata be another target of baby snatching? How can Seenu commit crimes while still in jail? What is the connection between Seenu and Amaravathi (Bhumika)? What is the modus operandi of the crime?
These questions are answered through a flashback and an unexpected climax.
Ravi Babu and Gadde Sindhura are convincing in their roles as police officers.
The real surprise package is Tarakaratna who acquits himself well in the role of a hypnotizing villain. Sneha is good. Bhoomika and Kota Srinivasa Rao do well in their cameos. Paruchuri Gopalakrishna and Kasi Viswanath are OK. All others are adequate in their roles.
Belonging to a suspense thriller genre Amaravathi has a new theme and novelty of execution. Screenplay gives the necessary suspense to the narration. Cinematography by Sudhakar Reddy is of high quality.
Background score by Sekhar Chandra enhances the narration values. There are no songs or dances in the film. Production values are good.
Amaravathi is not a mainstream film with song-and-dance sequences and romance; thus it may not appeal to the regular mass audience. This film will appeal to multiplex audience and to those cine-buffs who like horror/thriller films.
Amaravathi is well made with good suspense elements and a new wave psychological crime. It deserves a look in.
