This and That

Arundhathee(அருந்ததீ)

Movie: Arundhathee

Cast: Anushka, Sonu Sood, Shayaji Shinde, Manorama

Director:  Kodi Ramakrishna

Verdict: Good Horror Movie

Plus: Anushka, Graphics, Spooky without getting cheesy

Anushka has acted very well. The movie as a whole is a good horror flick. A little high on the gore meter though. Not a family entertainer. It is definitely R-rated in my opinion. Some of the scenes reminded me of  The Mummy. The palace set is really grand and nice. I hear that it cost Rs. 85 lacs to build the set! The dance sequence with the drums is nice. I guess it will be even better on the theatres. The dubbing artists have done a good job. Wish I knew who was who. The lip-sync is a little off. But pardonable given that the Tamil version is dubbed from Telugu.

I would say it is a good watch for anyone who loves the Indian horror flicks.

(P.S. Please leave logic at home when watching the movie.)

  1. I heard only the VFX is good and there is nothing new in the story. Seems Sayaji Shinde makes u laugh 🙂

    Whatever! now Anushka is a hot propery in Tamil as well and seems the Hindi version is gonna have Deepiak Padukone!

    Story is nothing new. It is just that it is not cheesy as any other Ghost/God movies we have seen in the past.
