Horror Comedy films have become safe bets at Box Office. Not just in Tollywood, even Kollywood star heroes and heroines are showing keen interest in hearing and accepting the projects coming under horror backdrop with comedy or suspense based thrills adding a string. One such movie released yesterday in Tamil and Telugu in parallel is ‘Kalavathi’ that is ‘Aranmanai 2’ in Tamil.
Directed and acted with heroism by Sundar C, the best advantage this film enjoyed is bombastic star cast of Trisha, Hansika, Siddharth, Poonam Bajwa. Without disappointing audience, Trisha upped her glamour quotient for a beach song and then a wet saree scene which might entice the lower classes. On to performance, Hansika showed the credibility on how she shouldered the main storyline of ‘Chandrakala’ then and ‘Kalavathi’ now.
The flashback episode of Hansika and Vaibhav getting murdered by their own family members in the name of Honor Killings stood a major plus in keeping main plot and sentimental packed emotional quotient high and connected. Beyond glamour image, Hansika is also known for some decent performances and ‘Kalavathi’ is one more such show with substantial horror and humor value.
