An entire village is terrified as they believe that a spirit of a girl is haunting them, Saravana Shakti a ruthless womaniser, uses this fear to his advantage and mistreats the women he lusts after. Nandha Kumar's belief are opposite to the villagers and he tries to make them all to not believe in paranormal activities.
Meanwhile, Saravana lays his eyes on Leema, and tries too attain her. But as she was already in a relationship with Nandha, she gets married to him. The couple leads a happy life, until Nandha suddenly dies, and wakes up as a spirit himself. The rest of the plot revolves around his murder, and whether he saves his wife from the womaniser Saravana.
Nandha Kumar, has produced and is the protagonist of the movie, though he has delivered an ok-ish performance, his ability to emote fear or look fearsome was really poor. Saravana Shakti as a baddie has delivered a convincing performance. But, as a director he has done a below average job. He has totally failed to keep the audience hooked to the film, as the screenplay of a horror genre was hilarious instead of terrifying. Leema's performance was decent.
Parimalavasan has handled the music department, and his songs are tasteless, while his background scores are comparatively better. Kesav's cinematography skills are majorly questionable as the shots and angle are quite decent, but it is shaky through out the movie.
In short, Soorakaathu, is below average.
