Dhilluku Dhuddu 2 starring Santhanam and Shritha Sivadas, was exactly what it advertised to be – a lowbrow comedy with a few ghosts thrown in. Yet, the film was enjoyable – in most places, the comedy by Santhanam and ‘Mottai’ Rajendran works and invoked laughter in the theatre.

The story is about a CB-CID officer Shivalingeswaran (Raghava Lawrence) investigating a “declared” suicide of a young man Rahim (Shakthi Vasudevan).…

It’s the season in Tamil cinema for Horror Comedy films, a trend restarted sometime back by Kanchana & Aranmanai franchises kept alive by Massu and horror flicks like Demonte Colony & Miruthan. It’s the turn of comedian turned hero Santhanam to join the bandwagon with Dhilluku Thuddu. I had low expectations for the film, but it turned out to be a watchable and a bit enjoyable too. The film starts on high note where we are…
