Synopsis: Police find three bodies in a locality. During investigations, they find a girl had gone missing and suspect a link between the deaths and the girl. Spoiler alert: One night, a dreaded goon who has a fixation for his neighbour Lalitha ( Prachi), decides to visit her. On that very night, a cop hunting a criminal also lands up at Lalitha’s door and decides to have a go at her. Another goon is on the hunt for Lalitha as she is the only witness to his crime. Would you be surprised if her parents are away?
Movie Review: Arakkonam is a partial remake of the 2010 Telugu movie Aa Intlo Oka Roju by the same director. But the pedestrian acting, combined with a lack of logic, makes Arakkonam a very painful watch. The movie, in its story form, had some potential but the director appears to have made no attempt to make it watchable. Sriman is wasted as Prachi’s lover Anand.
Another highlight of the movie, in terms of unintended humour and lack of logic, is the moment when the police, while investigating Lalitha’s disappearance, mistake a disguised Lalitha for a statue. The list is endless, sadly this review is not.
