Dhilluku Dhuddu marks the 4th feature of Santhanam as a hero, Directed by Rambala who is popular for his Lollu Sabha TV Series in Vijay TV. Movie starts with event which happened many years ago in a palace located Sivankonda Malai which is haunted by a lady and her seven years old son who were brutally killed by a Tibetan king. Since then the palace and the village nearby are tormented by the ghosts. Cut to Present day where Kajal (Shanaya) is in search of Kumar (Santhanam) her childhood friend .After some brief and usual story segments they she finds Kumar (Santhanam) and falls in love with him. Unhappy about their relationship Kajal’s Dad (Saurabh Shukla) decides to kill Santhanam with the help of ‘Mottai’ Rajendran. They lure Santhanam and his family to the haunted palace to kill them .How Kumar deals with murderous gang and the ghosts which haunt the palace is rest of the story.
Branded as a horror comedy, the horror part come just starts in the second half . First half is just filled with same old love story and usual one liners from Santhanam. Though comedy is clean it’s the same as any Santhanam’s comedy movie and doesn’t impress. Santhanam’s hero role doesn’t stand as its forced on the audience only his comedy traits are notable. New comer Shanaya dosen’t deliver she could have been replaced by any Tamil speaking heroine who could have done better. Hindi actor Saurabh Shukla who plays the girl’s dad, has done a good job but to his caliber his role was wasted with very less screen time. ‘Mottai’ Rajendran is takes command in the second half and takes the audience in a fun roller coaster. Other cast members which include Karunas, Anandaraj fail to impress. Dhilluku Dhuddu gets 5/10
