There was a time when horror films and comedy films were in the lower category when it came to mainstream cinema, but things have changed incredibly that we see that they are in the A list now and like Hollywood, filmmakers are combining both the elements together and are dishing out horror comedies. Abhinetri is one such film, but surprisingly it is not cheeky like most of its counterparts. The screenplay ensures that we get what we paid for……entertainment.

Krishna Kumar (Prabhudeva) is a 34 year old working in a advertising agency in Mumbai. He is desperate to shed his single status and get married to any girl as long as she is modern and has the right figure. As luck would have it a dying grandmother gets him married to a village girl Devi (Tamannah). Krishna despises Devi and keeps his marriage a secret from his colleagues. One day, he changes his mind and takes her to an award function sponsored by his company and Devi undergoes a dramatic transformation. She becomes a different woman, wears minis, dances, speaks flawless English and flirts around. Back home, she becomes the village girl, wears sari, speaks nothing but telugu and does not remember that she has been out. Krishna soon finds out through his neighbors that an aspiring actress called Ruby killed herself in the very house he is staying. It is clear Devi is possessed by Ruby. Ruby makes a deal with Krishna, he should let her use Devi's body to fulfill her starry ambitions and she would leave him and Devi alone. Krishna reluctantly agrees with a promise that Ruby should leave Devi's body the moment the first film is released….Ruby agrees, but soon we learn that she has other plans…..

Tamannah is spot on with both the characters, she effectively changes her body language for both the characters. The scenes where she threatens Prabhudeva and her dance sequence at the award show showcase her acting abilities which has surprisingly evolved over a decade. A Special mention is the scene where she sees herself for the first time on the screen at the premiere..her expressions speak volumes

Prabhudeva is excellent when it comes to comic timing and the mandatory item song with Amy Jackson proves he is still the best of dancing stars around….even though the quality bar is dipping. Sonu Sood is good, carries off what little is expected of him. Music by Sajid wajid has more of a north flavor even though the film was originally shot in south. The songs are bad, but the music is good.

Screenplay and direction by Vijay are excellent and lifts what could have turned into a mundane film to a well executed comic thriller
