Charulatha Movie Review by a COMMON MAN:
This Movie is an adaptation of Thai Horror Movie "Alone" which got released in 2007 and was a huge hit in Korea and other Asian countries.
Official rights have been brought for remaking this movie in Tamil. Hopefully, it will be a lesson to others who copy from Hollywood movies and will not agree even after it is proved.
This Movie had been released in 4 Languages (Tamil, Kannada, Telugu & Malayalam) by Saxena. Yes, the same Sun Tv Saxena whom most of us knew. This is his first Production movie after coming out of Sun Tv.
This is the first Siamese Twins story in Tamil Cinema (which has got released).
Story: TRIANGULAR LOVE STORY between conjoined twins and so called hero Skanda.
I think this will be the first movie which had a Duet Song in the second scene itself. Song was neither good & it made the audience think whether they have done a mistake by coming for this movie. Few scenes after the song were too slow and will really test anyone's patience.
Movie really picks up the speed during the interval and have managed to hold the THRILL till the end. There are lots of Twists in the second half and Climax Twist will be really different for Tamil Audience.
Priyamani has proved to the world that she deserved the NATIONAL Award by wonderful performance in this movie.. Full Movie revolves only around her and she has really shown great differences in two characters. Though, Conjoined twins looks similar, Priyamani has really differentiated them by Voice, Attitude, etc...
Hero Skanda, Actress Saranya & Seetha have only few scenes and doesn't have much opportunity to perform in this movie.
Music is by Sundar C Babu. Songs were not too good , but BGM for this movie was too good.
Cinematographer Panneerselvam has done a good job. Locations of the first song and few scenes were good.
Director of the movie is Pon Kumaran. He is assistant director of K.S.Ravi Kumar. First, we have to appreciate him for not putting his name in STORY and giving credits to the original story writer. He has done justice to this Remake movie.
Horror & Thriller movie lovers will like the second half of this movie much more than normal audience.
I would rate the first half as 2 /5 and second half as 3/5
Hence, overall rating for this movie is 2.5 / 5
