Anamika is a classy suspense thriller that definitely deserves a watch. For those who have never watched ‘Kahaani’, this film will be a very good watch. For those who have seen ‘Kahaani’, things are not as exciting, but they will still enjoy the second half. This is a nice, sensible film that should do well in multiplexes.
Rating: 3.25/5
‘Anamika’ is a very gripping thriller that surely deserves a watch for good performances from Nayanathara and Vaibhav. Keeravani’s terrific background score and clever writing help the movie significantly. A slow first half lessens the impact a bit, but overall, this is a nice film from Shekhar Kammula.
Rating: 3.25/5

Rating: 3.0/5
Though the movie is a remake of Bollywood movie “Kahaani”, “Anamika” is a different movie with some changes in the movie, where Nayanatara, Harshavardhan Rane and Vaibhav’s performance were showcased very well. Apart from the first half, the second half of the movie is blended with emotions, suspense and thrillers, which was nicely narrated by Shekar Kammula. Folks can have a look this suspense thriller for this weekend.
Rating: 3.0/5
First half of the film is little slow and second half has the main content. The audiences of this film can be categorized into two groups - people who have seen Kahaani and people who haven’t seen Kahaani. As a person who has seen Kahaani, I find the changes to be little disappointing though Sekhar Kammula has honestly tried to make it as a film with fresh treatment and modified screenplay. Thriller has it’s disadvantages when remade as most of the people would be aware of the climax. Anaamika might be liked by those who haven’t watched the original.
Rating: 3.0/5
‘Anaamika’ is Sekhar Kammula’s mark thriller. The film’s story and twists will be liked well by the audience, who haven’t watched Vidya Balan’s ‘Kahaani’. For others, it is just one-time watch for Nayan’s performance.
Rating: 3.0/5
There are a few unexplained gaps in the story, but these are answered to a certain extent during the ‘Addam lo Ammai’ song in the rolling titles. Many people walk out of the theatres during such scenes and they might miss these clues.Some scenes and mystery links should have been explained in a more elaborate manner by the director. Finally this film could not be compared to Kahani and the first half of the film is a bit slow but the second half and climax wont disappoints you. Its a worthy watch.
Rating: 3.0/5
A serious film and has topical subject, Anaamika is a nice thriller. Although it doesn't look as novel as the original movie, this is fairly good adaptation of Kaahani by Sekhar Kammula. Post interval sequences work out so well. For those who have not seen Kahaani, surely Anaamika will be a treat.
Rating: 3.0/5
Anamika is not a faithful remake of Kahaani. Despite working for a remake, Sekhar Kammula got to use his creativity well. He weaved the story well around the terrorism concept but some how could not end it well. People who have watched Kahaani may not be satisfied by Anamika. But for the rest, it would be a decent watch!
Rating: 3.0/5
Watch Anamika for its refreshing appeal. If you have watched Kahaani, invariable comparisons will result in disappointment with the adaptation.
Rating: 3.0/5
If you have watched Kahaani, this film falls behind it but overall a very good attempt by Sekhar Kammula.
Rating: 3.0/5
There are few scenes that look repetitive in the first half and editing could’ve been better in this hour. Also, Sekhar could have revealed on how Nayan gets to know about Milan Damji or what happened to Hard disk and what is in it. Nayanatara and Vaibhav are impressive in their roles. The run length is also an added advantage for Anaamika. Despite many implemented changes, few of the crucial twists in Kahaani and Anaamika remain similar.
Rating: 3.0/5
Keeravani’s terrific background score and clever writing help the movie significantly.‘Anaamika’ is a very gripping thriller that surely deserves a watch for good performances from Nayanathara and Vaibhav.But overall, this is a nice film from Shekhar Kammula.
Rating: 2.75/5
The film has been touted as the remake of the Bollywood hit movie Kahaani but then it must be said that apart from the main line of plot, many things are different. The first half is somewhat erratic with elements of drama, some comedy but the interval bang was good. The hiccups in the first half makes up for the second half as it has come out very well. Overall, the film must be appreciated for its concept and its taking. At the box office, it has enough potential to score a success.
Rating: 2.75/5
One misses the suspense in the first half and the audience can almost predict the twists that are about to come. Also, one cannot relate to the pain of the heroine and this leaves you thinking of the original all along. However, Shekhar makes up for this in the second half by turning it into a gripping thriller. But he once again falters during the climax.
Rating: 2.5/5
Anamika appeals but pales in comparision with Kahaani.
Rating: 2.5/5
Nayantara tries hard to save the film and yes, she is partly successful. Pre-climax portions are good. Despite missing some logic, the film is a one-time watch. The film might connect to people who haven't watched original Kahaani.
Rating: 2.5/5
Some good films are not meant to be remade or rehashed, even if they are, a lot of effort in tweaking it into a good film should be made and not rely on the Cinematography, music and art work alone and of course not to forget the Heroine who talks with voice of a singer. But it’s a Shekhar Kammula film and we all want to watch a good film…
Rating: 2.5/5
For audience who did not watch ‘Kahaani,’ you can try it once. An expert at generating feel-good with an incredible ease, Sekhar failed to achieve the same in this mysterious suspense-thriller genre. Finally, appreciate Sekhar for not following the copy-paste of original as ‘Anamika’ is a remodeled version of ‘Kahaani.’
Rating: 2.0/5
Finally, Anamika is a decent watch for the people who did not watch the Original. If the comparisons come in, Anamika may not score the marks.
Rating: 2.0/5
When a successful movie is remade, the thing to be looked at is not only the successful points. But circumstance and relevance are also important. When Kahaani turned out to be a massive hit, one of the major reasons for it was believability, sympathy and the realistic approach with engaging narration made viewers connect to the film instantly.
