If you are comparing Durgamati to a particular movie, one obvious comparison is the remake of Brahmavati, which starred Bhumi Pednekar. While the latter has a similar premise to Durgamati, it’s far less impressive. It is not as interesting as its Indian counterpart, and it lacks a few of the novel twists that made Bhaagamathie such a hit. Moreover, the film’s dialogues are often overly dramatic and lack a punchy climax. Despite this, the film’s lack of originality makes it easy to skip the film’s narrative dips.
While the original Telugu film is a great film, the Hindi version does not disappoint. Akshay Kumar is one of the producers of Durgamati and is seen as a bhakt of New India. But liberals will accuse him of playing a silent spectator to fascism. While Bhumi Pednekar gives a stellar performance in the movie, it is hard to see how it’s not a blatant copy of Bhaagamathie.
Although Bhumi Pednekar is an excellent performer, she fumbles in Durgamati, which is no match for Anushka Shetty’s Bhaagamathie. Meanwhile, Arshad Warsi’s character is too predictable and Mahie Gill’s character is awfully written in Bengali. While the premise of the story is promising, the film’s weaker third act detracts from the film’s other flaws.
Speaking of the remake, Durgamati is an Indian Hindi horror thriller film. Akshay Kumar, Bhumi Pednekar, and Vikram Malhotra produced the movie. As an added bonus, the movie is now available for worldwide streaming on Amazon Prime Video. There is no doubt that this is the perfect time to watch this Indian thriller, especially as the COVID-19 pandemic makes it so popular.
The film aims to be the official Hindi remake of Telugu horror thriller Bhaagamathie. Both actresses have starred in the Telugu original, but Bhumi Pednekar’s Durgamati is the official Hindi remake. Fans of Anushka Shetty insist that Bhumi is a poor copy of her predecessor. In the meantime, some fans have been comparing the actress’ look and performance with the actress from Bhaagamathie.
The film’s trailer starts with a conspiracy between politicians. Mahie Gill plays a police officer, and Arshad Warsi plays a politician. The film’s ghost also invades the movie and possesses Bhumi Pednekar’s character. The trailer of Durgamati was released to rave reviews, but critics said it is a “mockery” of the original.
