Aarathu Sinam is the remake of Jeethu Joseph’s 2013 Malayalam movie Memories. Arulnidhi takes the lead role which was played by Prithviraj in the original version. Story starts with a series of murders which happens in and around Madurai. The victims are tortured , killed and their bodies displayed in public. The police are dumbfounded and the media are ripping them apart for their incompetence . Thats when the commissioner (Radharavi) decides to hand over the case to Aaravind. Aaravind( Arulnidhi) once a proficient cop is grieving over the lose his wife and daughter. How Aaravind fights his own demons and also finds the killer is the rest of the story.
Aarathu Sinam a decent thriller with some exiting moments which keeps you going till the end. Arulnidhi gets into the character well but I think could have done much better, since there was scope in his role. Aishwarya Rajesh comes briefly has his wife but makes an impression. The story takes time to seep in and hurries off in the second half. Script has lot of gaps which makes it incomplete and finally winds up with a familiar scenario. Robo Shankar tries to give some comic relief but becomes repetative and dull. The main content loses lustre as the movie goes ahead. Aarathu Sinam leaves the audience dry in the end. I give it 3/10
