    Verdict - Aranmanai 2 is an empty film where neither the comedy nor the horror is solid thanks to the done and dusted plotline.

    Only a director like Sundar C can deliver a commercial package that can both entertain a section of audiences and annoy others, all at the same time. The film follows the age-old template of a spirit avenging the perpetrators of its death like the earlier outing in the same franchise. However, the comedy elements have worked out fairly to an extent in this middling horror flick, which never manages to scare you.

    Aranmanai 2 tries severely to scare the audiences but everything goes in vain. The scares and thrills are monotonous with close-up shots of the lead cast and manipulative sounds of objects from various setpieces. The movie totally relies on the supporting cast that forms Soori, Kovai Sarala and Manobala who perform decently to bring moments of laughter, especially in the second half where the movie picks up pace.

    The last thirty odd minutes of the film are quite predictable and adds to the frustrating experience despite the limited running time. HipHop Tamizha has scored beautifully and his background score strengthens the narrative effectively at many sequences.

    Trisha's first horror outing has not gone as well as she would have expected. Hansika's character has been worked out well adding more emotional muscle to the role. Siddharth has done justice to his role but he does feel miscast at many junctures.
