Unakkenna Venum Sollu (UVS) is yet another horror film that has released this year. With an interesting title, the movie had acquired some pre-release buzz. So what does this film has to offer? Does it differ from the recently released horror flicks? Continue reading our movie review to know.
Unakkenna Venum Sollu Plot:
Like most horror films, Unakkenna Venum Sollu is about a spirit's revenge. But here, the spirit of a young girl needs more than just revenge, it needs answers from the girl's parents on why they chose to abandon her.
The film showcases a couple, played by Gunalan and Jaqlene Prakash, moving in to Chennai with their son. They soon begin to experience paranormal activities and thus decide to seek the help of a professional.
In a parallel narration, life of a single guy (played by Deepak Paramesh) gets showcased. He begins to get eerie phone calls which leads him to investigate on them.
How are these phone calls connected to the deceased girl and her parents forms the crux of Unakkenna Venum Sollu.
Anu, the little girl on whom the entire movie is based, unfortunately gets limited screen space. But she manages to shine whenever she takes the centre stage.
While Deepak Paramesh looks comfortable in essaying his role, the film's female lead, Jaqlene Prakash has come up with a decent performance but it's far off from being called a refined act.
Technically this movie is solid, sans songs. But the background score by Siva Saravanan has worked out really well and supports the emotions this movie carries.
Manish Murthy's cinematography is one of the positives of this flick. The way he has captured the climax sequence which involves hypnotherapy deserves a mention.
But the film falters in its first half as the narration is pretty slow. Also, for a horror movie, Unakkenna Venum Sollu lacks those scary moments as the director Srinath Ramalingam has chosen emotion over horror.
Overall, this movie might disappoint if you are a looking for scary moments as a true horror fan. But, manages to score high on the emotional front.
