Sangili Bungili Kadhava Thorae - A Good Mixture Of Laughs and Horror With Dull Screenplay!


Jiiva’s debut in the horror comedy genre. Jiiva has collaborated with debutant Ike, who had earlier assisted Kamal Haasan in Vishwaroopam, for Sangili Bungili Kadhava Thorae. The movie has Sri Divya in the female lead role with Soori, Radhika Sarathkumar, Radharavi, Thambi Ramaiah, Kovai Sarala, Rajendran and a host of other actors are part of the cast. The movie has Vishal Chandrasekhar's music, Sathyan Sooryan's cinematography and TS Suresh's editing. 



Film revolves around a house broker whose goal is to own a house will end up purchasing a haunted house. There is another family which also bought the same house from a broker, While the two families fights for the ownership, frequently some unexpected events started happening inside the house. Slowly they find that the house is haunted by an evil for a specific reason. How did they get back the house? What is the motive of the ghost? frames the remaining story. 



As usual Jiiva's casual style of acting fits perfect to the character he plays, a real estate agent. But its time for Jiiva to come out of his comfort zone and try something new and interesting. He has paired with Sridivya for the first time, as a couple both looks very good. Sri Divya does not have much to do here and what is alarming is that she seems to be losing her charm in recent few films. Soori gets a nice role as Sooranam and has played to the gallery delivering laughs at regular intervals and he even has a love track.  Radha Ravi as usual is majestic as the golden hearted zamindar turned terrifying ghost while Thambi Ramaiah is in full form as the bungling Jumbulingam. Able support is provided by Radhika, Devadarshini, Madhumila, Kovai Sarala, Mayilswamy, Ilavarasu and Rajendran. 

SBKT is heavily indebted to Raghava Lawrence’s Munni/Kanchana series in terms of its setting. The highlight of the movie is its horror element. Ike plays smart by introducing scenes which may look like supernatural acts but finally turn out to be doing of a human. And there are other moments where you are under the impression that someone is playing a prank but you end up being surprised. Ike raises the anticipation and anxiety level of the audience in horror scenes but doesn’t go all out as the genre is horror-comedy. However, the director seems capable of doing an honest horror film, which is long overdue in Tamil cinema. 

Vishal Chandrasekhar has composed the music, He has given a perfect back ground music which travels smoothly along with the scenes. Songs are not up to the mark. Eventhough the picturization is catchy, songs are not impressive. Visually the film is commendable. Good work by Sathyan Sooryan. 










Few Comedy Scenes Fall Flat 


Verdict : A Good Mixture Of Laughs and Horror With Dull Screenplay!

Stars : 1.5/5
