Aranmanai – Movie review

22 Sep


The story revolves inside Aranmanai an ancestral house in a village. The family which has been separated over the years lands in the village to sell it to a local headman. There is the newlywed couple Murali (Vinay Rai) and Madhavi (Andrea Jeremiah), Maya (Raai Laxmi) and her father, Kovai Sarla, her husband Manobala and son Nithin Sathya. Santhanam a local crook joins as a cook looking for a proof which also makes him an heir to this property. Sundar C plays Ravi, Madhavi’s brother. From the day the family enters the house mystery glooms around and one by one the servants disappear. Each one of the family members senses a ghostly presence in the house. Madhavi is worried as she senses that there might be a danger to her husband. Ravi assures Madhavi that he will ensure Ravi safety and begins to investigate. What will he find out and how he solves this mystery forms the rest of the story.

After giving mediocre hits like Kalakalappu and Theeya Velai Seiyyanum Kumaru , Sundar C yet again disappoints his fans by giving a very predictable horror story. The narration is slow, horror sequences very repetitive and not scary, even the ghostly presence seems very artificial and painted. Comedy gives some relief but that to become ugly in some places. Vinay and Nitin Satya are a miscast in the whole ensemble. Andrea and Hansika are the two main actors and they have performed to their characters. The worst is the music and the songs which doesn’t stick to the film and drags the movie even more. Second half proves to be much slower than the first, the whole 161minutes seemed never-ending. I give the film 2/10 .
