Mohini(Poorna) and Harsha(Harshvardhan Rane) escapes from the evil Captain Raju(Ravi Babu) in the first part and they shift to the city to a costly locality. They travel to Varanasi and a sadhu gives a holy thread to the couple to stay safe from the evil spirit of Captain Raju. The interesting thing is that the evil spirit of Captain Raju returns back haunting Mohini. The rest of the movie is how Mohini escapes from Captain Raju. Watch the movie to know what happens next.
The first half of the movie has been very slow with boring narration and it completely resembles to that of the first part Avunu. The basic concept and the narration has been completely similar. The interval scenes bring interest and on the whole the first half has nothing new to offer.
The second half of the film has been racy but what makes the difference is that the movie has been completely predictable. The complete second half lacks interest and the predictable scenes make the film fall down. On the whole the second half has some interesting scenes but the movie falls flat.
Poorna is the main asset for the movie and she delivered an outstanding performance throughout the movie. She looked confident and showed her skills in the film. Harshavardhan Rane has improved a lot and he is sure a backbone for the movie. All others have been decent with their performances.
The story of the movie has nothing new to offer and those who have already watched Avunu will have nothing new to explore in the movie. The screenplay of the movie lacks grip and the movie has been mostly predictable. The music and the background score have been top notch and the cinematography should be given good applause. The production values have been grand enough and no penny has been wasted on screen. Ravi Babu as a director could not succeed in directing the sequel with interest and suspense.
Avunu 2 is a completely predictable horror thriller which lacks content along with gripping narration. A good focus on the story and thrilling elements could have made lot of difference. Avunu 2 can be ignored.
