Avunu Movie Review Analysis:

Director Ravi Babu has made 'Avunu' with lot of conviction and wonderful screenplay. He maintained the suspense till the end and made it more appealing till the penultimate scene. There is no deviation from the plot and Ravi Babu has done a significant job in making 'Avunu' another spine chilling thriller! There are no songs and comedy episodes in the film and that has made it even more gripping. Ravi Babu has got an apt star cast and Poorna has taken the centre stage in 'Avunu' movie. 

The movie storyline was heavily inspired from several Hollywood movies like ‘The Shining’, ‘Sixth Sense’ and ‘Paranormal Activity’. But, these things harldy matter as Ravi Babu has handled the movie more efficiently. There are no delicate elements in the narration and the director has added few innovative scenes to the tale but the climax goes on a predictable note.

The special effects too were used appropriately. Especially, the automated lighting used for the house is praiseworthy.

Ravi Babu is growing leaps and bounds as a director and writer by the day. His every film is unique and offers versatality in the way he presents it.
