After a long time I had an opportunity to watch a good tamil movie. The film is called 'Eeram' which means wet literally but it also has philosophical meaning.
This is a super natural thriller and the director almost convinces us with the slick screenplay & excellent background score. The film opens with a young lady suicide in an suburban apartment. The police officer is our hero and he is known to the lady who is our heroine. He starts to investigate on the suicide and finds that 3 of them die related to the heroine one after another by some way of accidents/made to look like accidents. Panic sets in among the apartment residents and the police officer moves into the apartment to get a conclusion of these deaths. When you find the thing that is behind these deaths you are amazed by the story telling. A simple distorted fact can wreck a family & people die.
The hero Aadhi is good as a youngster & police officer. His athletic body suits the role. The film moves seamlessly from the current scene (investigative mode) to the hero/heroine's earlier days (college day) when they were in love. There is no confusion whatsoever in the alternating sequences which is a relief.
The director does not enter into an argument whether ghosts exists or not, even the hero is compelled to believe that ghosts exists (so do we).
It's a clean movie, a thrilling one and a different kind of movie experience.
My rating for this movie is 3 star out of 5.

**** - Must Watch. Don't Miss!
