Annabelle Sethupathi Review: Unfunny, Blunt and Frustrating

Annabelle Sethupathi Release Time

Annabelle Sethupathi Review: There are some films that are naturally funny, there are some films that are forced funny, and there are films that tried to be funny but turns out to be a frustrating one. Annabelle Sethupathi is one of them, Hostatr released their original film Annabelle Sethupathi in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu. I Just finished the Hindi version of the film and here is a detailed review of the film.

The film stars Vijay Sethupathi and Taapsee Pannu in the main lead roles along with Jagpathi Babu and Rajendra Prasad. The movie also stars Radhika, Yogi Babu, Vennela Kishore, and others in crucial roles. The film is written and directed by Deepak Sundarrajan and produced by Sudhan Sundaram. The movie is approx 2 Hours and 14 Minutes long and You can watch the film with your family, Avoid watching it with small kids.


The film revolves around a Palace that is believed to be haunted and a family of Ghosts lives there. When a family of thieves comes to live there, One of the Girl in the family (Rudra – Played By Taapsee) found some past connection with the Palace. What was that connection and why all other house members are trapped as ghosts inside the Palace? To know this you have to watch the full movie on Hotstar.


The script of the film is so bad that it makes the actors and their acting look frustrating. Jagpathi Babu is the best among all and the reason behind this is, he barely speaks in the film. Taapsee Pannu is so bad in the film, after watching her in Iconic Haseen Dilruba and her amazing performance, this film looks like a Joke. She has so much talent and I don’t know why she agrees with this script.

Yogi Babu tries all his hard to make us laugh but he falls flat due to the silly writings and the dialogues. Vijay Sethupathi tried all his best to save the film with his performance but again silly and poor script win here too. The rest of the characters and their performances were equally below average.


Lockdown has shown so many bad things and films like these are one of them, I don’t know how makers agree on investing in the films like this. A few days back there was a similar case happened with zee5 when they released Kya Meri Sonam Gupta Bewafa Hai? I am still confused about how OTT platforms agree on these films, but on the other hand, i want to thank them for bringing them on OTT, it saves us from 3-4 hours long torture in the cinema halls.

The film never picks up momentum and not engaged you even for a second, the dialogues are very frustrating, the script an above imagination, and the screenplay adds another minus to the film. The timing of the songs is at the next level and the BGM of the film was average too. The VFX and budget of the film are so bad that makers can’t even arrange a real Sword in the film, instead of that a Platic sword was used and it was sounding like a real one.

Oveall Rating

I am going with 1 out of 5 stars for the film, The film is blunt, Unfunny, and frustrating, Just skip it, there is not even a burst of single laughter in the whole film. Even if you are a fan of any of the lead actors avoid watching it. The movie is now available on Hotstar.
