The word 'deja vu' literally stands for "a feeling of having already experienced the present situation." When it is the title of a film, it can only be a mystery or a crime thriller, or a bit of both. That's what the 2022 film 'Dejavu' is about.
A novelist goes to the police seeking protection from fearsome characters from his novel. How did they spring to life? That's the suspense. Then there is a case of the kidnapping of a girl, whose sequence of events is predicted with shocking accuracy by the novelist. Add Ghibran's BGM to the drama and you have the right atmosphere.
Starring Arulnithi as an undercover cop, Madhubala as a DGP, Smruthi Venkat as a cop, Achyuth Kumar as the novelist, Kaali Venkat, Mime Gopi and others, the thriller is currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
Helmed by Kollywood's Arvindh Srinivasan, the film's Telugu version is produced by Rajasekhar Annabhimoju on Bhavani DVD Inc.
