The Telugu film industry is no stranger to thrilling narratives, but when it comes to high-concept stories, they are a rarity. ‘DHIMAHI,’ the film whose trailer was recently unveiled, offers a fresh and engaging take on the genre, blending emotion with an advanced concept that promises to captivate audiences.
Directed by Saahas Pagadala and Naveen Kante, ‘Dhimahi’ delves into the emotional journey of a family dealing with the disappearance of their daughter, Mahi. What sets this thriller apart is its exploration of a concept called Necromancy, a supernatural practice that involves communicating with the deceased. The film’s trailer hints at an intricate and gripping plot centered around Mahi’s enigmatic vanishing act. Dr. Karthik, portrayed by Saahas himself, takes on the role of the determined uncle and friend, embarking on a journey to unravel the mysteries surrounding her disappearance.
However, ‘Dhimahi’ is not your run-of-the-mill missing person investigation. It introduces viewers to the realm of necromancy, where the dead are contacted not just to uncover past secrets but also to foresee future events and potentially prevent impending danger. This unique twist in the storyline promises to keep audiences on the edge of their seats, making it clear that ‘Dhimahi’ is more than just a thriller; it’s a concept-driven cinematic experience.
The second half of the film seems to be filled with tension, with the male lead risking everything in his quest to communicate with Mahi. The trailer also hints at a feel-good romantic subplot, a heroine with intelligence and depth, and emotionally charged moments that are sure to tug at the heartstrings.
Produced by Captain Cook Films, with Virat Kapur and Saahas Pagadala at the helm, and featuring Nikitha Chopra as the heroine, ‘Dhimahi’ showcases the filmmaker’s preference for compelling narratives over conventional commercial fare. If the trailer is any indication, it’s evident that ‘Dhimahi’ is poised to offer an intriguing and rare cinematic experience, supported by a talented cast, evocative music by Sharon Raavi, and effective cinematography by Rah Sharma, with visuals and color grading that perfectly complement the storyline.
