Hansika steals the show. Despite having a brief screen space, the actress stuns audiences with her devilish avatar. Trisha has done her part well not only in terms of glamour but also in performance. Though Siddharth’s role offers nothing much, the actor has pulled off his role with ease. Director-actor Sundar C plays a loving brother who wants to put an end to the chaos face by his sister. The comedy portions of the film are very well managed by Soori, Mano Bala and veteran actress Kovai Sarala. In fact, the trio’s perfect comic timing offers several Lol moments.
The first half of the movie is a blend of horror and comedy which ends with a predictable intermission. Whereas, the second half makes up for it, with its thrills. The scare factor intensifies as the movie progresses towards its end. Despite being a predictable story, the intriguing screenplay and background music have complemented the mood the film. With that said, the VFX part of the film could have been better.
The art department of the film deserves a special mention. The giant 103 feet statue of the Goddess and the lavish sets are eye-pleasing. Hiphop Tamizha’s background music is brilliant whereas the songs are not that impressive. Senthil’s cinematography is colourful and grand.
On the whole, Aranmanai 2 has its share of flaws but ultimately it is an entertaining ghost package!
