Analysis :


Director Chaitanya should be appreciated for making a movie with such typical content. The subject he made is very good but the output wasn't that impressive. The interval bang is good and the second half is dragged. The two twists in the second half will be interesting. Coming to the technical stuff, music by Mani Sharma is outstanding and the background music is an asset for the film. All the songs are filmed exceptionally well. Cinematography by PK Varma is top notch.

Performance :


Gautham matured as an actor. He displayed his emotions well and did justice to his role. Gautham made sure he is a director's actor but we cannot say this is his best performance as it is only the third film of Gautham. Though Alisha Baig's role is minimal she is adequate. The rest of the cast were ok.

Final Word: Basanti will appeal to the multiplex audience but falls short of expectation to the mass audience. Gautham better luck next time.
