The trailer for Anushka Shetty's Bhaagamathie directed by Ashok G is out. This is Anushka's first release after Baahubali 2 and the actor looks amazingly majestic on screen.
To release in Tamil and Telugu, the trailer tells us that Anushka plays an IAS officer who is targeted by powerful people for standing in their way. She is shut inside a huge mansion which appears to be haunted. We also get to see Anushka acting like the ghost or a "possessed" person, dressed majestically and declaring that people cannot come here and go as they please and that it is Bhaagamathie's land.
Malayalam actors Unni Mukundan, Asha Sharath, Jayaram are also part of the cast. From the trailer, Unni seems to be Anushka's ally and it's also suggested that the two of them might be in a romantic relationship. Asha Sharath, who is famous for playing the role of a police officer in Drishyam, has been cast as a cop once again.
Despite the CGS which doesn't look all that impressive, Bhaagamathie inspires awe simply because of Anushka's powerful performance. The trailer reminds one of Arundhathi, which centered around Anushka's character and established her as a woman actor who could carry a film entirely on her shoulders.
Late in 2017, Nayanthara, south India's highest paid woman actor played an IAS officer in Aramm to critical acclaim and Anushka is following suit with Bhaagamathie although both films are of different genres. SS Thaman's music adds to the suspense in the frames and has got social media excited about the trailer.
Bhaagamathie is expected to release on January 26.
