"Butterfly" Starring Anupama Parameswaran, Bhumika Chawla, and Nihal Kodhaty in the lead roles, the movie is currently streaming on Hot star. Let’s see how the film has been made.


Geetha (Anupama Parameswaran), a Chartered Accountant, lives with her sister Vyjayanthi (Bhumika Chawla) in Hyderabad. Vyjayanthi, a prominent criminal lawyer, raises children by herself as she has issues with her husband. One day, she leaves for Delhi for an important job and asks Geetha to take care of the children. Suddenly, the children go missing, causing a shock to Geetha. She takes the help of her boyfriend Viswa (Nihal Kodhaty) in the search. Where did the children go? Were Geetha and Viswa successful in finding the children? This forms part of the rest of the film.


The biggest drawback for butterfly is the bland narration, which lacked the required thrill. Many films have come up with the theme of children’s kidnapping concept in the past, and it needed hence a bit of freshness to make this movie exciting. But Butterfly remains as one more regular thriller that offers nothing new.

The story never moves forward, with sequences repeating which bore the viewers. The monotonous feel continues until the end, and the writing team has done below par job.


Anupama Parameswaran is perhaps the alone plus point of the film, who plays an exhausted, powerless woman put into a painful situation. She brings grievance and exhaustion with precision in important scenes, but apart from that her character didn't have the intensity. Bhumika too gets her performance good in a few places. 

Technical Departments:

The background score by Arviz & Gideon Katta was fine. The cinematography by Sameer Reddy was impressive. However, the editing team should have reduced redundancy by chopping a few repeated parts. Director Ghanta Satish Babu did a below-par job with the film. The screenplay is predictable, and the film has many tiresome moments. 

Final Note: 

Butterfly is a repetitive thriller, which offers nothing exciting or fresh. Only Anupama Parameswaran's performance is noticeable in this uninteresting offering.
