Yaavarum Nalam

Stars Madhavan and others. Mostly the script revlolves around him. The movie portrays maddy as a upper middle class man who along with his brother gets a brand new apartment. What happens after he moves into the apartment? It brings a lot of happy moments to his family at the same time strange things happen in the house. Bad omen sets in from the very first day. The ladies in the family gets hooked to a tv serial which starts its first episode from the day they enter the house. One cannot fathom why Maddy alone is able to relate the tv serial to the happenings in his house but other ladies who watch it almost not missing a episode are dummies? And why does the killer hallucinates with the occupants of the house? I felt the movie could have been sensibly handled but well since its a horror flick one may have to go beyond that sense.

The director needs to be applauded for a very different approach and for maintaining the edge-of-the-seat thriller till the end. The story takes a steep turn when maddy begins to investigate who is behind the making of the serial and finds the horrifying truth. A gripping tale !The movie is a must watch.
1.Break the thumb-rule
2. Do not plan for a movie seeing the history of movies directed by the director else you will miss this movie.
