Script

Direction
Director
Deepak
Sundarrajan
makes
his
debut
with

Annabelle
Sethupathi,
which
had
all
possibilities
to
emerge
as
a
thoroughly
enjoyable
fantasy
comedy.
But
sadly,
the
idea
that
looks
extremely
promising
on
papers
has
been
made
into
a
half-baked
movie
experience
that
works
in
parts.
While
both
the
fantasy
and
comedy
elements
end
up
mediocre,
it
is
the
romance
that
makes
the
film
tolerable.
While
the
movie
scores
with
its
excellent
visuals
and
some
genuine
moment
of
laughter,
it
is
the
artificiality
in
the
staging,
dialogues,
and
even
performances
that
make
the
film
an
average
watch.
Despite
having
a
stellar
star
cast
that
features
some
of
the
most
talented
artists
of
the
industry,

Annabelle
Sethupathi
sadly
fails
to
live
up
to
the
hype.
Lazy
writing
and
execution
are
the
biggest
issues
of
this
film.
And
our
films
definitely
need
to
stop
cashing
on
body
shaming
comedies,
which
is
anything
but
funny.
Even
the
scenes
that
had
the
most
potential
are
staged
without
conviction,
and
the
dialogues
that
were
supposed
to
evoke
laughter,
just
fall
flat.
However,
this
Taapsee
Pannu-Vijay
Sethupathi
starrer
will
definitely
appeal
to
kids
and
audiences
who
are
ready
to
turn
their
brains
off.
Performances
Taapsee
Pannu
has
delivered
an
earnest
performance
as
Rudra
(special
mention
to
dubbing
artist
Deepa
Venkat).
Vijay
Sethupathi,
who
makes
an
extended
cameo
appearance
is
at
his
usual
best.
The
laudable
chemistry
between
Taapsee
and
Sethupathi
makes
the
romance
portions
of
the
film
quite
enjoyable.
Yogi
Babu,
despite
heavily
relying
on
his
signature
style
to
generate
humour,
shines
at
parts.
The
rest
of
the
star
cast
including
Jagapathi
Babu,
Raadhika
Sarathkumar,
Rajendra
Prasad,
Devadarshini,
Chethan,
and
others
have
done
justice
to
their
respective
parts,
despite
the
characters
being
criminally
underwritten.
Technical
Aspects
The
production
design
and
excellent
visuals
are
unarguably
the
biggest
strengths
of

Annabelle
Sethupathi.
The
palace,
which
is
the
backdrop
of
the
story,
is
simply
a
visual
delight.
However,
the
same
brilliance
cannot
be
seen
in
the
costume
designing
(especially
Vijay
Sethupathi’s
Raja
look).
The
editing
is
fine,
while
the
VFX
team
has
done
a
decent
job.
However,
the
music
and
background
score
of

Annabelle
Sethupathi
disappoint
big
time.
When
it
comes
to
the
songs,
only
the
romantic
numbers
stand
out.
Some
of
the
songs
were
just
unnecessary
in
the
proceedings.
The
extra
loud
background
score
definitely
needed
to
be
toned
down.
Verdict
Annabelle
Sethupathi
is
a
partially
enjoyable
fantasy
comedy,
that
works
at
parts
if
you
are
willing
to
turn
your
brain
off.
But
this
Taapsee
Pannu-Vijaysethupathi
starrer
will
disappoint
the
audiences,
who
are
expecting
a
well-made
comedy
entertainer.
