Thankfully, humour continues to be director Sundar C’s forte — remember films such as Ullathai Allitha, Winner, and even the recent Theeya Velai Seiyyanum Kumaru? Here too, the film’s strength is Santhanam, whose presence through the film ensures plenty of laughs. The setting is right up Santhanam’s alley and he, with his trademark puns and retorts, provides much hilarity. Aranmanai, like Boss Engira Bhaskaran and Oru Kal Oru Kannadi, is possibly yet another film saved by the comedian’s presence despite some obvious flaws.
Skin shows, stock comedy, vengeful woman… Kollywood’s horror formula is well in place.
