 Minus Points:

·         Direction

·         Screenplay

·         Editing

·         Few scenes are boring

 Performance: Anupama Parameswaran impresses with a matured performance. Her emotional acting in the scenes where she goes as a refugee for help is the highlight of this movie. Bhumika has done justice to her role though she gets less screen time. Rauramesh and Nihal are good in their respective roles. There is nothing new in Praveen’s character as a constable. All those who play negative roles perform well.

 Technical: The story written by director Ghanta Satish Babu is good. But  it must be said that his work is not fully satisfactory. There is no proper screenplay. The movie highlights  how society views a girl who comes in need. Butterfly is a mystery thriller movie set in the backdrop of Kidnapping. It is not easy to tell these routine stories in an engaging way. But the magic is missing in Butterfly. The production values are good.  The music is good and the background scores are also a plus for many scenes. Also the cinematography is good. Editing needs to be done better. Dialogues are just ok.

 Analysis:  Butterfly is a routine mystery thriller movie with no surprising elements. The movie revolves around the character of Anupama Parameswaran.
