There’s nothing new concerning the broadly startled eyes of characters who’ve come nostril to nostril with a scary-looking ghost or watched paranormal tips performed by a vengeful spirit. We’ve seen all of it, again and again. If not within the Aranmanai franchise, then within the Kanchana sequence or a whole bunch of different horror motion pictures from all over the world. For years, now we have been subjected to every kind of soar scares. If one continues to react to overused scare ways, it doesn’t imply the director has managed to succeed. It’s simply in human nature to shudder when one thing ugly or horrifying pops up in entrance of us. Any 10-year-old with a ghost masks can do it. Then, what’s the purpose of a director with over 30 years of expertise to lay our a fortune on a film to realize the identical impact?
There’s nothing novel about Aranmanai 3. On the coronary heart of the story is a large palace with a darkish historical past. And someplace within the nook of this palace, there’s a locked room. Many haunting secrets and techniques stay buried so long as the room is locked. However, as soon as it’s open, it unleashes a darkish pressure, which is nearly unimaginable to comprise. Does the synopsis sound acquainted? It’s as a result of Sundar C, who has written, directed and acted on this movie, attracts closely from Chandramukhi, which was the remake of Malayalam hit Manichitrathazhu. As an alternative of “Raa Raa” track, which is a lady’s craving to satisfy her lover, we get “Sengaandhale”, a mom’s lullaby, rising from a room, which has now turn out to be a den of supernatural forces.
The one distinction is Sundar C’s Ravi, who not like Rajinikanth’s Dr Saravanan, has no discernable skills to take care of forces past his ken. He can’t learn minds like Saravanan. He doesn’t appear to have the intelligence and aptitude to outsmart ghosts. However, for all his shortcomings, he’s the one saviour we get on this movie. Arya’s Saravanan, in the meantime, is simply used as eye sweet. Aside from flexing his biceps again and again, Arya doesn’t get to do a lot on this movie. The identical destiny is meted out to different actors. Not one actor among the many solid of Raashi Khanna, Vivek, Yogi Babu, Andrea Jeremiah and Sampath Raj has a significant position to play in what might be safely termed because the dumbest movie of the yr but.
In a scene, Raashi Khanna’s Jyothi escapes an assassination try by a ghost. Normally, an individual who has simply been attacked by a darkish pressure will probably be in a state of shock. However, she goes again to mattress for a very good evening’s sleep as if nothing has occurred. The subsequent time she exhibits any concern for the darkish entity is on the subject of hang-out her once more. All characters keep up all evening taking part in disguise and search in full make-up and heavy jewelry, however not one individual might be discovered when the ghost is chasing a small child. And these complaints don’t even make 10 % of the movie’s entire downside.
It’s laborious to consider that Aranmanai 3 comes from the thoughts of a director who made Anbe Sivam. “I confronted extra disadvantages than benefits after doing Anbe Sivam. I did that movie with all my coronary heart. However, due to that movie, I needed to sit at residence (with out work) for nearly a yr. When individuals see me now, they ask me why I’m not doing a movie like that any longer. And after I hear that, it makes me offended, not blissful. I really feel like asking them the place they had been once they had been wanted. Now individuals watch the movie on DVD and the web and recognize it. However, if they’d supported this movie when it was launched, I’d have had the motivation to do extra movies like that,” Sundar C had stated on a tv present earlier.
We get the movies we deserve. Once we fail to understand Anbe Sivam, Aranmanai 3 is what we get.
