Aarathu Sinam Tamil Movie Review
Furious & Fast
There are three As (Arulnithi, Arivazhagan and Aaradhu Sinam) and our verdict is 2 As (Above Average). A remake of Malayalam hit ‘Memories’, ‘Aaradhu Sinam’ is a gripping thriller with its own plus and minus points.
Kudos to Arivazhagan for taking pains to make interesting changes in the script, so that the film doesn’t sound like a remake. At the same time, the essence of the original has not been missed anywhere.
Aravind (Arulnithi) is a romantic and peaceful family guy, leading a good life with his family. His loving wife (Aishwarya Rajesh) and beloved daughter were murdered, and as a result, Aravind turns into an alcoholic.
His mother is deeply concerned about his drinking habits. Meanwhile, Aravind gets the challenge of his life in a case involving the disappearance and possible kidnapping of several young married men.
The present police team is not able to make any progress in the case. Aravind refuses to take it up. But he accepts it following his mother’s request and is soon seen making breakthrough.
Few more kidnappings happen in the series and all this leads to Aravind’s rough conclusion of the murderer. Who is he and why the murders are being committed?
Arulnithi seems to be keen about making steady progress in his acting career and ‘Aaradhu Sinam’ is one more in his journey. He excels in his role, though he needs little bit of improvement.
Aishwarya Rajesh, Radharavi, Anupama Kumar, RNR Manohar and Robo Shankar and Charlie deliver good performance. Thaman’s music and Aravinnd Singh’s cinematography are loud and good, respectively. Rajesh Kannan S’s editing makes things crisp.
Despite few logical loopholes and little lag, ‘Aaradhu Sinam’ may find space among the list of well crafted suspense thrillers in Kollywood. Good show by Arivazhagan-Arulnithi.
