Indumathi is such a lousy movie, you'll be waiting for it to end even if you are nowhere near any theatre screening it. Comprising of concepts from Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho and stories that fail to make the prelim rounds of under-12 creative writing contests, this one is to movie appreciation what cyanide is to life. The only positive aspect is that you'll get tickets really easily - and you'll be lucky if you don't get a refund due to the show getting cancelled. If you still really need to know what it's all about, here it is.

Most people are sick of being constantly pursued by their bosses. In the case of Madhu (Shweta Bharadwaj), however, it is different - she is running away with Rs. 2 crores of the company's money. Driving really fast, she and her boyfriend land up in the middle of a stormy night in front of a desolate house in the middle of nowhere.

It's always frightening to be in a dark place where random things are happening unconnected to each other, there are loud and weird sounds meant just to scare you, and people are coming out dead or psychologically scarred. And no, we are not talking just about the theatres screening this movie. The house has an inescapable eerie feel to it, but Madhu and her boyfriend need to hide, and persuade the reluctant owner, Anand (Harshavardhan), to let them move in right away.

Soon Madhu's boyfriend does the most logical thing to do when you are in a lonely place with a skimpily-clad bombshell - he runs away with her money. Some of the audiences are thinking he's a genius - it can't be illegal to steal money that's already been stolen. Some of the audiences are thinking he's dumb - when he can keep both the babe and the money, why does he decide to keep just the money? Some of the audiences are worried about more fundamental issues - who's going to strip the babe now???

Since the last question above is easily the most important, the movie addresses it first: the babe dies. As a great saint once noted, it's best to forget about a babe stripping after she's dead. The next bunch of tenants in that house are 4 youngsters who are constantly squabbling. Then a psychopath, Ravi (Sivaji), lands up in their house and kills 2 of them, and the other two stop squabbling. As you've gathered by now, this movie believes in solving problems at the root.

So what is the link between the pyschopath and Madhu? Why does Anand not report the murders happening in his house? How do people become psychopaths? You'll find the answer to at least one of those questions if you watch this movie till the very end.

Indumathi is a disaster from the word go. Even if you set aside the sick humour (like Raghubabu drinking urine by mistake) and all the red herrings sprinkled liberally to mislead and scare you but which make no sense in the end, the movie fails in the basics such as flow. Random stuff keeps happening on screen, making your spam folder look like it could contain a better movie script. The actual script has just about enough content for a climax, and to stretch it out into a full movie, there's a whole load of meaningless content in between.

Sivaji will regret this for a long time. The rest are lucky - they won't even be noticed. Now just try to act like you never noticed this review on fullhyd.com either.
