Andhaghaaram is a Tamil dark supernatural thriller movie released on Netflix as an exclusive premiere on 24th November 2020 with a runtime near to 3hrs. Arjun Das, Vinoth Kishan has portrayed a significant role in the movie. V Vignarajan directed the film. A for Apple and Passion studios produced the movie.


Andhaghaaram means darkness enlightens about three people where one is Dr.Indiran (Kumar Natarajan), a renowned psychiatrist emanated alive from a gunshot by one of his patient at which he lost his vocal cord taking assistance for his voice.


The second is Vinod (Arjun Das) is a young cricket coach and distressed soul. He has a girlfriend who nags him continuously at all times. His life got twisted when he receives an anonymous call.


And the final is a sightless and brilliant librarian named Selvam (Vinoth Kishan) works in a government library for living and works as a medium between the dead and alive as part-time from which he learns from his late father. He suffers from kidney failure doing dialysis for his survival.


A thread connects all the above three gets intertwined forms Andhaghaaram.


Andhaghaaram starts with a black and white atmosphere where multiple phones ring in different places, continues to frequent horrible suicides that will be explained later in the movie. The director takes voodoo magic as well as psychological methods to drive the picture engrossed and thrilled. The flick was constructed layer by layer using the timeline narration that twines and untwines as it should be.


There will no jump scares or ominous background score to handle the supernatural replaced the feeling with the artist's splendid acting. I would say this is the master performance by Vinoth Kishan. He has lived in the role of Selvam. His previous movies as villain and rouge utterly transformed into a subtle in the film. Arjun Das has done his excellent performance as Vinod. His expressions and his concrete alike voice are crushing and engaging. Spaced out the two, Kumar Natarajan, Pooja Ramachandran as Pooja (Teacher and RTO officer) have done their clean slate performance given an uplift to the screenplay.


The scenes of a nagging girlfriend are boring and irritating. She is the one who should be tense instead of complaining. The cinematography was dark as like in the movie's name plus perfect in covering the aspects of objects which are meant to be dark and ominous.


Overall, Andhaghaaram is awesome and appealing in providing a wonderful supernatural thriller flawlessly made for a streaming platform. I would be suggesting the production house to bring more content like this in the series version.
