Aranmanai 3 Film Assessment: With the Aranmanai franchise, Sundar C appears to have constructed a protected zone for himself. These movies are turning out to be a refuge for the director, initiatives that he can take up at any time when his different movies do not do properly, and assist him get his box-office mojo again. After the primary Aranmanai, he had the much-trolled Aambala. And he did Aranmanai 2 proper after it. Now, Aranmanai 3 comes proper after the debacles that have been Vandha Rajavathaan Varuven and Motion. On condition that these motion pictures are roughly critic-proof – they’re nearly scary-enough and humorous for youths, and provide momentary diversion for the adults, so what’s there to complain? – Sundar C’s determination solely appears good.
This newest installment follows the template set by the primary movie simply as faithfully as a ghost haunting its sufferer. Now we have a Palace, a ghost that haunts it, a bunch of eccentric characters (and there’ll all the time be a child who would be the first one to identify the spirit), handsome feminine leads, boyish-looking, barely useful male leads, Sundar C because the masculine saviour, godmen, overblown mysticism (with a saami paattu within the climax), cheesy visible results, a enjoyable track with comedian catchphrases and naturally, the comic who’s the flavour of the season. In 2014, it was Santhanam. By 2016, he had moved on to turn out to be a hero, so it was Soori. And now, it’s, in fact, Yogi Babu! And as a bonus, this time, we even have Vivekh, whose profession had simply begun to achieve a second wind earlier than his unlucky demise.
Right here, the plot entails Eswari (Andrea Jeremiah), who has been wronged by Zamindar Rajashekar (Sampath), and returns with a vengeance as a ghost to take revenge on him and his daughter Jyothi (Raashi Khanna). Even because the zamindar’s son-in-law (Sundar C) tries to search out out the explanations behind the ghost focusing on his household, it possesses Saravanan (Arya), Jyothi vs love curiosity, who has come to the palace on the pretext of restore work.
On condition that that is the third movie within the franchise, Sundar C appears to have felt that extra the merrier. And so, we’ve right here, along with the 2 star comedians, three ghosts as an alternative of 1, grand-looking units and an over-the-top climax that rivals that of the Kanchana franchise. The movie does what it intends to do, roughly. We get the bounce scares and we get some comedy (although, the movie is rarely as humorous as the primary movie). Arya goes lacking for big sections of the movie, Raashi Khanna seems to be fairly on a regular basis, Andrea is earnest and Sundar C is so assured of dealing with the ghost, Vivekh offers us just a few bittersweet moments and Yogi Babu does his insult comedy. All of it occurs in predictable style, and by the point the movie ends, we neither really feel overwhelmed nor underwhelmed. That, in a manner, is the director’s success – making us really feel contended with a satisfactory and immediately forgettable entertainer.
