Nagesh (Aari), a property broker, lives with his mother (Sithara), brother and sister (Athulya), who is differently-abled. Since he is unsuccessful in his profession, he is desperately searching for a job.
One day, he comes across a beautiful girl (Ashna Zaveri) and falls in love with her. In the meantime, he comes to know about his sister’s relationship with a young man and sends his mother to fix marriage.
Though the boy’s parents agree for the wedding, they demand huge dowry. Hence, Nagesh decides to sell of their family property, a theatre. But he does not know that it is haunted.
Is Nagesh successful in overcoming the obstacles and is he able to conduct the marry of his sister with her lover or not form the rest of Nagesh Thiraiyarangam.
While we are familiar with eerie thrillers set in the backdrop of big bungalows, the premise- a theatre- is a different offering in Nagesh Thiraiyarangam.
The movie, directed by Mohammed Isaack, has some interesting characterisations, convincing flashback and a series of mindless, but entertaining sequences.
At the smae time, we should also mention that the plot goes haywire after a point. Aari has delivered a measured performance and fits well to his role. Ashna Zaveri is good, while the rest of the cast includes Kaali Venkat, Sithara and Latha among others.
The best part of Nagesh Thiraiyarangam comes towards the end of the second half when the motives for why the film was made in the first place become clear.
Sri(kanth Deva)’s music is okay, but gets louder at places. Naushad’s cinematography goes well with the theme. The director, who has focussed well on certain portions, could have given equal importance to other scenes as well.
