OTT Review : Amala Paul&039s Cadaver – Telugu film on Hotstar

Cadaver movie review

star heroine amala paul came up with the mysterious corpse thriller produced by the actress herself. The movie is currently streaming on Disney Plus Hotstar. let’s see how it is.


bhadra (amala paul) is a famous pathologist. she continues to solve the most complicated cases and helps the police department with her experience in many cases. The death of Salim Rahman (Ravi Prakash), a well-known surgeon, comes as a challenge for Assistant Commissioner Vishal (Harish Utthaman) and he needs Bhadra’s help to solve it. In the process, they meet a Vasu prisoner (adit arun) who has openly vowed to kill the surgeon. during this, a series of murders take place. it is a surprise to vishal and bhadra how one person inside a cell managed to commit all these murders. bhadra and vishal feel that someone from outside is helping vasu. Who is killing himself? What is Vasu’s motive behind this series of murders? bhadra and vishal pursued this? this is part of the rest of the story.

positive points:

The main thing that is good about this movie is its main twist that is revealed at the end. the film’s backdrop is set differently and adds freshness to the story.

amala paul, as a police surgeon, did an excellent job. she carries the film on her shoulders most of the time with ease in acting. Harish Utthaman, Athulya Ravi and Adit Arun were decent in her assigned roles.

There are some intriguing scenes, such as a corpse that remains the same without decomposing even after 4 years, which arouse curiosity and capture the attention of viewers. the initial portions are well set up and generate interest.

negative points:

Any good thriller needs a fast-paced script and that’s not the case here. after a good start, the film runs out of steam and slows down completely. the flat narration doesn’t help the proceedings either. the suspense factor is clearly absent. while the idea is good on paper, its amateurish execution has disappointed the film in a big way.

Another big drawback is that the movie becomes completely predictable in many places. this shouldn’t be right for a mystery thriller. the flashback sequence is very routine and fails to bring the emotional aspect to the movie.

the reason why vasu’s character is in prison is unclear and this is where the writing team fails miserably. just like these, there are plenty of logical loopholes that make the movie lackluster. there are a lot of subplots in the movie that feel rushed and aren’t handled well. the loose ends present in the film are not well connected.

technical aspects:

although the songs don’t grab our attention, ranjin raj’s background score does. It’s convincing. Aravind Singh’s cinematography is fair enough. the mortuary setting is well represented through the camera work of it. production values ​​are high.

The editing team could have done an even better job. coming to the director in a panic, he has done a subpar job with executing things, even with a promising story. although it’s off to a good start, the narrative loses its tempo in the middle parts. I should have been cautious about the logic part as well.


Overall, Corpse is a clunky thriller that’s okay in parts. Amala Paul’s performance, the basic premise and the main twist are its saviors. on the other hand, poor writing, illogical script and predictability factors are its main flaws. anoop panicker only succeeds in very few parts with this otherwise excellent thriller with engaging storytelling and good execution. if you’re expecting an edge-of-the-seat thriller, you’ll be disappointed. rating: 2.5/5
