Siddharth, Trisha and Hansika's much-talked-about film "Kalavathi", the dubbed version of the Tamil movie "Aranmanai 2", has received positive reviews from the Telugu audience.
The 2014 Tamil comedy horror film "Aranmanai" was a big success, both critically and commercially. Sundar C, who wrote and directed the film, is now back with a sequel, titled "Aranmanai 2". Sundar C has written story and screenplay for the new movie, while Venkat Raghavan has penned the dialogues. This film has been dubbed and released in Telugu as "Kalavathi", alongside the original.
Siddharth plays the son of a landlord (Radha Ravi) who is hospitalised. He enters his palatial house with his fiancée (Trisha). But mysterious happenings land him in jail for a crime he did not commit. His fiancée's brother (Sundar C) enters the scene to crack the mystery. What happens next forms the crux of the story.
The audience say "Kalavathi" has an interesting story and engaging screenplay, loaded with lots of horror and comic elements. Some scenes in the first half make the film an edge-on-the-seat thriller. The second half is superb with hilarious comic scenes. The movie is another good horror-comedy after "Ganga".
Lead actors Siddharth, Trisha and Hansika Motwani have develivered superb performances. Along with the script, their performances are highlights of "Kalavathi". Others, like Sundar C, Soori, Kovai Sarala and Manobala, have done their best and are also good attractions, say the audience.
"Kalavathi" has brilliant production elements. Hiphop Tamizha's background score and UK Senthil Kumar's cinematography are the big draws in the technical front, the viewers say in their verdict shared on Twitter. Here is the live update of the "Kalavathi" movie review by the audience:
