Aadupuliyattam is a horror-thriller, directed by Kannan Thamarakkulam. The film has been scripted by Dinesh Pallathu. It is after a brief break that a horror-thriller movie is releasing in Malayalam and hence the expectations on the movie have been good enough.
Take a look at some of the interesting posters of
The story of Aadupuliyattam is based on an age-old myth
which is shown in the beginning of the film. The film then travels
through the life of Satyajith(Jayaram), who is a rich businessman.
He goes through some hallucinations and encounters some mysterious

Script and Direction
Aadupuliyattam is the second outing of Kannan
Thaamarakkulam as a director after the forgettable Thinkal
Muthal Velli Vare. The director has improved a lot and has
been able to package the film without much glitches. But, still he
falls short on providing the necessary chills which is much
required for a horror-thriller. The director could have worked much
more on that.
Dinesh Pallath weaves out a story that suits the mood of a
horror-thriller. At the same time, the film is not devoid of cliche
elements that are found in usual horror films. The film does move
on to a repetitive track in the second half, after the
comparatively better first half.
Jayaram gets an image makeover sporting thick beard and
moustache. He looks confident throughout the film and has delivered
a sincere performance. Ramya Krishnan excels in her role, probably
we can't imagine anyone else in that role. Om Puri does a decent
job in his second outing in Mollywood. Ramesh Pisharody and
Pashanam Shaji provide us with some occasional laughs.
Sheelu Abraham has nothing much to do. Sampath does a good job
delivering a solid performance. Special mention to Baby Akshara who
simply stole the show.
Jithu Damodar deserves a good round of applause for setting some
brilliant frames tht did gel well with the genre of the

been a big hit. 'Karuppana Kannazhugi' has some splendid beats and
the song has been well-picturised. BGM lifts the movie at most of
the times but there are certain portions where it felt to be louder
Aadupuliyattam is nothing new and is an ordinary horror
movie which might turn out to be a watchable one for the lovers of
