Now the first thing that strikes us of Bethaludu is the haunting “Jayalaxmiii..eeeeee..” background score alone – now that’s a significant impact to have! Otherwise Bethaludu is a potentially goodthriller idea that started well but eventually couldn't live up to the expectations it installed.
It is still a Pradeep Krishnamoorthy’s film but the interesting screenplay in the first half and the way the curiosity factor was executed propels us to say this –
This script (by Pradeep Krishnamoorthy, Joe Dcruz & Karthik Krishna) had enough scope for betterment and out of the world treatment.
Looks like director Pradeep preferred it to be a psychological thriller with a special emphasis on the emotion in the flashback episode. But as a matter of fact, it looked over-stretched in the second half. And a weak antagonist force and confusion in the protagonist goal eventually reflects in the sub-standard climax. However the end twist was good one though!
