Antham story at a glance
Antham remains to one of the most remarkable films for Nagarajuna in his acting career for the subtle performance, sensitive emotions which were portrayed by him well. This film marks the second in Nagarjuna and Ram Gopal Varma’s combination. Shot in exotic locations of Sri Lankan forests, the film had R.D.Burman – the legendary composer in the music department.
Raghav (Nagarjuna) is an orphan and he gets the timely help from a don (Danny Denzongpa) who hires him for serial killing after growing up. Raghav has a very calm life and there is no room for relationships for him. Just at that juncture he meets Bhavana (Urmila Matondkar) an ornithologist student and falls in love with her innocence and charm. He hides his real identity from her and she starts loving him too. When things look hopeful for Raghav, Bhavana comes to know the real identify of him and starts moving away from him. Rest of the film is about what happens to the ill fated serial killer- Raghav.
Nagarjuna is excellent in acting as the ruthless serial killer as well as a great lover at heart. He gets more confined to expressions and emotions instead of dialogue delivery and pulls off another memorable performance. His acting in the climax is another highlight. Urmila is adorable as the female lead and her role of an ornithologist reminds the viewer of Bhanupriya’s from Anweshana. She pulls off another memorable role. Danny Denzongpa is vicious as ever in the negative role with brilliance in histrionics.
Audiography by Nivas is a huge asset for the film for its brilliant sound capture and the little sounds were brilliantly brought to life. Stunts by Horse Babu are of top notch giving the film a Hollywood feel. Cinematography by Teja is another crucial aspect for the film. Background score by Mani Sharma is thrilling and gives the film a new level of classiness. R.D.Burman’s melodious songs became highly popular and the songs like “Nee Navvu”, “O Maina” and “Entha Sepaina” became all time hits. Direction by Ram Gopal Varma is classy with engaging moments in every frame.
