Sarjun, who shot to fame with a short film Lakshmi made his debut with Echarikkai: Idhu Manidhargal Vazhum Idam. Now he is back with his next Airaa. What makes the movie interesting is that it features Nayanthara in dual roles. A woman-centric story, it is a horror genre film with enough moments to send chill down your spine.
In films like Aramm and Kolamaavu Kokila recently Nayanthara proved everyone how versatile she is as an actress. In Airaa, she plays a journalist and a timid girl with enough variety. Yamuna (Nayanthara) is a journalist who spends time in her grandmother’s house in Pollachi. its of horror elements are encountered there.
Meanwhile Amudhavan (Kalaiyarasan) loses his fiancee in accident. She is Bhavani (Nayanthara. A timid girl who works in a hotel. Her spirit takes revenge on those behind her death. Yamuna is unknowingly is one among them.
Three cheers to Nayanthara. She is at her best. And Kalaiayarasan adds strength with his performance. Yogi Babu’s comedy fails to evoke laughter.
K.S Sundaramurthy’s music is brisk.
* Nayanthara’s string performance
* K S Sundaramurthy’s music
* Chilling ghost scenes in first half
* Weak screenplay
* Predictable second half
Final line: Nayanthara’s show
