Nagesh Thiraiyarangam

MOVIE REVIEW: Most of the horror films made in India, or Tamil specifically, revolve around a building, which is possessed by a spirit, for which there always lies a reason. Quite interestingly, Nagesh Thiraiyarangam’s basic plot is set against the backdrop of a theatre — something fresh compared to the usual clichés. A story in which a spirit has possessed a movie theatre — this one-line actually has lot of scope, for a horror-comedy film, or a full-fledged horror flick, with some interesting characterisations, convincing flashback and a series of mindless, but entertaining sequences. However, in Nagesh Thiraiyarangam, the plot goes haywire after a point.
