Review by : Lakshmanan Dhoni
Lollu Sabha brought to fame not just Santhanam but also its director Ranbhala. But it took several years for him to make his debut as filmmaker.
The duo are together for Dhilluku Dhuddu, a horror comedy.A spoof on horror movies, the movie stands tall for Santhanam, Rajendran and Karunaas evoking right laughter.The movie which has a right premise for an exciting entertainer lives up to its reputation.
The screenplay and sequence of events in a haunted house adds to the excitement. The likes of Anandhraj, Bollywood veteran Saurabh Shukla add to the excitement.
Though Santhanam had played solo hero in films like Vallavanukku Pullum Ayudham and Inimae Ippadithan before, here he gets to do more. Dance, fight, emote and romance all in one film.
The high point of the movie is abundant laughter and sequence of events unfolding in a quick pace.Shananya plays the heroine. The newcomer has lots to do. She utilises the opportunity well.Kumar (Santhanam) is a happy-go-lucky-youngster who spends all time with uncle Karunaas. He comes across his schoolmate Kajol (Shananya). and they star lovingh.
Meanwhile her father Saurabh Shukla, a big man in Chennai plans to stop their marriage with a wicked plan.In the pretext of getting them married, he takes family of Kumar to a haunted house and with the help of a paid killer Mottai Rjendran plans to kill Kumar.
The latter does acts to make believe everyone that there is ghost in the house. what happens in their lives then forms the rest.Santhanam with his comical one-liners steals the show.
His new look is goo and he is fit and fine to play the hero.Shananya is fine while Shaurabh Shukla walks away with applause for his performance.Rajendran, Anandhraj and Karunaas have a part top play.
Music by Santosh Dayanidhi goes well with the story and BGM is good. Rambhala's screenplay deserves special mention.All said, the Santhanam starrer is a good show and must watch.
Laugher at its best
