Aruvam Movie Synopsis: A woman who does not like to harm an ant, has the ghost of a man who loves her, who seeks revenge on the corrupt men who murdered her.
Aruvam Movie Review: For some time in Aruvam, you might think that the director, Sai Shakar is peeping into the cliché that we see in our films. Take the introduction scene of the heroine, Joti (Catherine Trussa). She is so pure of heart that she stops herself from going to some ants while getting off her car. The director doubles the cliche when in the same scene, he takes her to a dead dog and burys her – even when her teammates smell foul. In the scenes that follow this scene, we get to know more about the good Samaritan side of Joti.
She lets a parrot belonging to an astrologer be freed, she feeds the prisoners of an old age home. In fact, the protagonist, Jagan (Siddharth) performs some of her acts and falls in love with her, in true filmy style. Even Jagan gets a story to make us instantly like him. He is an orphan, and honest. “Suthatoda uchcham,” his friend describes him.
But it is only after a short time that Sai Sankar is seriously dead. What seems like a high-concept romance – Joti has an unusual situation, which makes her oblivious to the smell, and constantly knocks Jagan down, fearing her disability may be a tragedy like her past – Suddenly becomes a transformative film involving a ghost. . But this honesty and predictable plot events underpin the film. Writing is everywhere. We hope that Joti’s ‘disability’ will affect the plot, but it never happens. In the latter half, we get shots of Jagan sniffing from food adulteration (he is a food safety inspector), which is literally! But also, it just goes nowhere. We also get a handful of villains, none of whom make an impact.
For Leeds, Catherine Trussa is too light for a role, which calls for both acting chops and a commanding screen presence, while Siddharth’s characterization seems to be a different version to the recent role of Sivappu Manjubhai Pichai. He comes across as honest, but the rest of the departments have failed him, only that he can make it for him. Maybe he can take solace in the fact that he is probably the only actor to have been a part of three different ghost films – Outstanding Aval (pure horror), partly Aranmai 2 (horror comedy), and now, This dull revenge drama.
