Hello Naan Pei Pesuren Review

|
Hello Naan Pei Pesuren is yet another template horror comedy that thrives solely on its supporting cast to evoke laughter instead of a worthy screenplay.
1.5 out of 5 (Poor, A Few Good Parts)  | SMK (NOWRUNNING)
Hello Naan Pei Pesuren directed by debutant Bhaskar is billed as a full-fledged, entertaining horror comedy but the amount of outdated and atrocious content dished out at audiences is simply mind-boggling. The overkill of horror films in Tamil cinema is palpable and Hello Naan Pei Pesuren can easily sound the death knell for the genre with its substandard plot and lackluster making.

The film works occasionally thanks to the comical wisecracks and hilarious dialogue delivery of VTV Ganesh, whose inimitable voice makes it merrier to the ears. Otherwise, there's nothing entertaining or engaging in the screenplay to keep the audience sit through the entire runtime of the film comfortably.

Amudhan (Vaibhav) is a devil-may-care, unemployed youngster who makes ends meet by doing petty thefts and mortgages it in the nearby shop to extract cash. However, a wrong call from Kavitha (Aishwarya Rajesh) earns Amudhan her jovial friendship which, as you would all know, gets converted into love as the story progresses. The romance track between Aishwarya and Vaibhav is plainly excruciating and staged with unbelievable laziness. The makers have added this particular track just for the sake of it without any authentic portrayal of the lead characters. And, it's quite clumsy. The only take away is the genuinely kickass Silakki Dumma song sequence where both Aishwarya and Vaibhav flaunt their dancing skills ostentatiously.

However, all hell breaks loose when Amudhan steals a mobile phone of an accident victim (played by Oviya Helen in a cringe-worthy role) who loses her life on the spot. The ghost of Oviya haunts Amudhan, who seeks the protection of VTV Ganesh (Kavitha's brother), the only silver lining in the story. The rest of the plot revolves around how Amudhan and others fulfill the wish of Oviya and disentangle themselves from the ghost.

The substandard writing is quite evident in the second half, which moves at a horrible pace without keeping us invested in the story. Aishwarya Rajesh doesn't fit the bill when she is bound to pose as a ghost towards the fag end of the film. Vaibhav gets a cliched lead role that requires him to do things most of the fledgling heroes in K'town do.

Overall, Hello Naan Pei Pesuren is yet another template horror comedy that thrives solely on its supporting cast to evoke laughter instead of a worthy screenplay.
