Anamika is a decent watch for the people who did not watch the Original. If the comparisons come in, Anamika may not score the marks.
A horrible bomb blast takes place in Hyderabad's People's Plaza which forces the replacement of the Home Minister. The case remains pending in investigation. And again there is an NRI, Anamika (Nayantara) who flies down to Hyderabad in search of her missing husband. SI Saradhi looks in to the case and as the investigation unfolds the mystery deepens. What is it? How both the cases are related? How they gonna end forms the rest of the story.
Nayantara delivered a solid performance as a woman in distress. Vaibhav did justice to her role. Remaining characters do not have so much weight in the context of the film.
Coming to the technical prowess, Sekhar Kammula eliminated the sympathies to a pregnant woman part and most dealt with Terrorism and the social causes behind it. He made some changes to the film. Some of them have worked and others failed miserably. It is tough to remake a convincing hit film like Kahaani, Kammula at least did not bring disgrace to the original.
Keeravani's back ground score is the life to the film. Cinematography is brilliant and editing should have been better in the first half.
Finally, Anamika is a decent watch for the people who did not watch the Original. If the comparisons come in, Anamika may not score the marks.
