Roopa: Strong plot, Weak making
An interesting story is let down by poor acting and presentation
Anthonykamal’s Roopa does not claim to have been inspired by a real-life subject, but going by the script, it looks like he has. There is very little in terms of creative imagination.
His film is unusual, a result of real-life emotional crises. So, there is a mother who loves her daughter. There is a daughter who loves her mother. And then the mother kills her daughter!
Cast : Mamtha Rahauth, Rekha Kumar
Director : Anthonykamal
Roopa (Mamatha Rahauth), who has grown up with her single mother, (Rekha Kumar), a rich businesswoman, does not get much affection from the family and falls into a life of vice. But just when she realises that she is heading the wrong way, she decides to change, but gets killed. What follows is an investigation and a predictable climax.
While the producers have chosen a strong script, they seem to have chosen a weak team. Amateurish in presentation and actors who resemble puppets. Add to that the shooting location, which is a star hotel, where the jail, house, restaurant, pub, have all been stitched into.
With Mamtha Rahauth, Rekha Kumar and Shobraj, the director himself has a role to play in the film, which character seemed unwanted. With inconsiderate dialogues, Roopa cannot hold any good in terms of music and cinematography.
The producer was right in putting in his money, but the entire plot gets a weak display.
