Best performances 2018 (Telugu): A Thread. Chronological.
Anushka—#Bhaagamathie.

Chanchala needed a performance that depicts strength while still leaving space for vulnerability, and Anushka gave it her best. Not to forget the formidable titular character.
Nithya Menon—#Awe.

A character that comes and goes, but stays with you throughout the film. The attitude. The boldness. The empathy. Don’t know how Nitya pulled it off with such ease considering the utter lack of reference points. 🙏🏽

Keeping aside the fact that I’m a woman who watched a film that is being called “progressive”, I will talk about it later. Let’s discuss the writing and dialogues of #AravindaSametha as Guruji is a matala manthrikudu and whatnot.

Thread. SPOILERS!!
The film’s primary conflict revolves around the man who is at the top level of factionalism food chain. The idea is to try peace, since war hasn’t worked for either parties. Not new, many films have explored this, but only Mirchi comes to mind.
So, the idea is to say no one is anyone’s enemy and that everyone is as good/bad as the place they come from, then the first thing to do is humanise the characters. Instead of having them be evil or good, have them be people—flawed and scared. Like Naveen’s character.
