It's far from conclusive, but the trailer on Amazon has subtitles, so their streamed video may well have them as well. Seems to cost $0.99 to rent or buy, so it's not expensive to find out.
Thanks; I had purchased it there before posting and the subtitles consist of "[NON-ENGLISH SPEECH]" when anything other than English is spoken. The DVD I have doesn't even pretend to have subs.
I am enjoying the movie, though. The shots of Hyderabad from an outsider's perspective are interesting. The film is not an improvement on Kahaani, so can't really recommend it.
ETA: Looks like it was made in Telugu at the same time and called Anaamika. Maybe that version will have subs; it's up on the various streaming services. Will try one and see; seems priced higher, which is a good sign.
ETA2: And, at least on Amazon, Anaamika does have subs.
Good to hear that you found a version with actual subtitles.
Yes, it can be a challenge. Still no subbed version of Mayakkam Enna AFAIK, despite it winning some awards.
Anyway, I finished Nee Enge En Anbe/Anaamika and enjoyed it for what it was. It's a shame Nayanthara doesn't get more badass roles. There was a scene where Nayanthara's character has to stand in one place to hide something, and I'm pretty sure it was her bare feet/ankles that had the tension-heightening cockroach crawling around on them. Maybe she'd get better roles if she ditched the giant fake eyelashes?
Oh. Superman\Wonder Woman types. They have their Important Place too, of course, and the woman playing Vengeful Killer is the second step after Wonder Woman's lasso in putting a stereotyped Female Hero next to the Male Hero.
Wikipedia shows Maisamma IPS - Telugu to be a 2007 movie starring Mumaith Khan, then aged 22, who is known for Dancing, and indeed dances-up a Heroic Fighting-Dance in this clip. Such shows are an important, even required, addition to the male fighters.
But, I thought we were talking about Nayantara, a top-ranked actress, and the powerful acting roles that she has earned.

dancelover: From the first such films thru the end of 1995, they needed lots of updating. Starting in Jan. 1996, someone else has been partially updating them, with Director, 3 Actors, confirmation they were in Kannadan, and sometimes Screenwriters.
