Urvi Movie Review
Rating :- 3.5/5 Reviewed by: Sunayana Suresh Site: TImesOfIndia
Asha is a medical student, full of hope, like her name. On the other side there is romantic Suzie and courageous Daisy who work in Bobby’s brothel. When fate makes their paths meet, will their dreams still remain alive? The film’s biggest strength is its casting. Right from the three leads, Sruthi Hariharan, Shraddha Srinath and Shwetha Pandit, to its two antagonists Bhavani Prasad and Achyuth Kumar, every single one of them delivers what is expected of them. Not too often do makers make films with three female protagonists and have an equally powerful female antagonist pitted against them. Watch this film if you’re ready to acknowledge a brave attempt.

The movie starts in a coastal backdrop with a happy family of a father and his two daughters. The movie is both a poetic and an artistic journey woven by BS Pradeep Verma. If you think the movie deals with various emotions of women, yes, it does. But, it also shows man as a father, lover, oppressor and betrayer who underestimates the strength of a woman making them the actual power of this movie. Oh yeah, there is one more actor, renowned singer Ananya Bhat. Now, go watch the movie to know more.

There are films that stoke the audience’s curiosity with their trailers, but the final screening will fail to meet expectations. Such is the film, Urvi. The tone of the film had to be different, because it is set in a brothel, but the picturisation by Anand Sundaresha and music by Manoj Geore fail to create that. Though Urvi is realistic, it fails to strike an emotional chord. Though Pradeep has an unusual story, the narration is grim with little relief in the the screenplay. But he seems to have not decided on his audience and therefore his effort is wasted.

B.S. Pradeep Varma’s Urvi unleases ample rage on screen and at least as far as the theme is concerned — child trafficking, forced prostitution and rape — the anger seems justified and eternally relevant. However, the problem is that Urvi still does not emerge as a strong film. This is primarily because of the way Varma constructs his narrative. The narrative universe of Urvi is unbelievably small. One brothel, one police station and one bad guy — even for one city, this is a bit too small and Urvi straddles two landscapes. But one would not have had a problem with the extreme attention to style (if the heroes can boast of swag, why not the women?) if it was couched in good writing.
