Rum - This Horror Movie Has Nothing New to Offer!
Hrishikesh, the cousin of musician Anirudh Ravichander and a relative of multifaceted Dhanush, is debuting as a hero in Rum. The Tamil film is written and directed by Sai Bharath and bankrolled by T Vijayraghavendra.
Hrishikesh had earlier worked in Dhanush's Velaiilla Pattadhari. Although the budding actor had received many offers, he wanted to wait for the "right script" to make his debut. In the movie, Hrishikesh has been paired up with Sanchita Shetty. Narain, Miya George, Vivek and others are also there in supporting roles.
Vignesh Vasu has handled cinematography, while Sathyaraj Natarajan has edited the flick. Anirudh Ravichander has composed the music and Hola Amigo, Alladhe Siragaiye, Peiyophobilia and Kadavulae vidai tracks have struck the chord with audience.
Rum is a spooky adventure thriller that involves a team of young people hunting for highly valuable rare gems and stones that were buried under the ground in ancient times and get themselves in series of trouble. How they get relieved from the ghostly house and whether they find those precious stones or not forms the crux of the story.
The lead actors Hrishikesh, Sanchita Shetty, Miya George and Vivek have performed exceptionally well in the film that could be seen on the screens. The major twist the director believes is revealed through Miya George’s character, who has stunned everyone with her intriguing performance. But what lags with the film is that director failed to impress audience as the story was not strong enough to hold the attention of the moviegoers. It is predictable and seems to missing clarity in narration and there are lags here and there. Anirudh background score has saved the film a lot with his gripping and terrifying soundtrack.
The plot is simple but what makes the film interesting to watch is the engaging storytelling. There are all sorts of commercial ingredients to entertain as well as ghostly things to give you nightmares.
Verdict : This Horror Movie Has Nothing New to Offer!
Stars : 2/5
