For years, Trisha Krishnan has expressed her desire to act in a solo horror movie, similar to Anushka Shetty's Arundhati. When it happened to her in the form of Nayagi, the actress took no interest to promote the movie owing to the differences with the makers of the film. After its release, the film was out of theatres without a trace.
Trisha has now got a second chance with a similar kind of film titled Mohini. Ramana Madesh, who has movies like Madhurey and Mirattal to his credits, has written and directed the film. The major highlight of Mohini is that Jackky Bhagnani, Bollywood actor and producer, plays the male lead opposite Trisha. Suresh, Poornima Bhagyaraj, Yogi Babu, Swaminathan and several others are part of the cast.
Vivek Mervin has composed the music for Mohini. Among the four songs that have been released, 'YouTube La Melam' has struck the chord with the listeners. Arul Dev has been assigned the job of scoring the background music for this Tamil horror flick, which also has RB Gurudev's cinematography and Dinesh Ponraj's editing.
Story: The movie is not set in isolated bungalows like many other cliched horror movies, however, the story unfolds in outdoors. The movie attempts to explain the supernatural elements from the perspective of science. Trisha plays dual roles of Vaishnavi and Mohini. It is a revenge story which touches upon a sensitive topic prevalent to the current times.
The first look of Mohini has left the audience in awe with Trisha having eight arms holding eight weapons, akin to the look of Goddess Shakthi. The trailer has also managed to get a decent response. Will the movie live up to the viewers' expectations? Find it in their words below:
Review Ram: #Mohini (Tamil) - A clichéd old-fashioned horror drama that completely misses out to engage. @trishtrashers @PrincePictures_ #MohiniFromToday @iYogiBabu
#Mohini (Tamil) - Interval - Regular revenge horror subject that is filled with full of cliches. @trishtrashers has played her part well and @iYogiBabu timing cimedy is time-pass. Nothing else works. @PrincePictures_ #MohiniFromToday
