There’s nothing new concerning the extensively 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, time and again. If not within the Aranmanai franchise, then within the Kanchana sequence or a whole bunch of different horror films from around the globe. For years, we have now been subjected to every kind of soar scares. If one continues to react to overused scare techniques, 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 big 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 change into a den of supernatural forces.
The one distinction is Sundar C’s Ravi, who not like Rajinikanth’s Dr Saravanan, has no discernable abilities to cope with 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. Apart from flexing his biceps time 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 forged of Raashi Khanna, Vivek, Yogi Babu, Andrea Jeremiah and Sampath Raj has a significant function to play in what could possibly be safely termed because the dumbest movie of the 12 months 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 likely 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 with regards to hang-out her once more. All characters keep up all evening enjoying disguise and search in full make-up and heavy jewelry, however not one particular person will 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 arduous to imagine that Aranmanai 3 comes from the thoughts of a director who made Anbe Sivam. “I faced more disadvantages than advantages after doing Anbe Sivam. I did that film with all my heart. But, because of that film, I had to sit at home (without work) for almost a year. When people see me now, they ask me why I am not doing a film like that any longer. And when I hear that, it makes me angry, not happy. I feel like asking them where they were when they were needed. Now people watch the film on DVD and the internet and appreciate it. But, if they had supported this film when it was released, I would have had the motivation to do more films 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.
