Aridhu Aridhu Movie review
A brain surgeon with an extreme phobia for sound kills anyone whose voice he considers too loud. His phobia overrules his life as he even kills his wife when she confronts him loudly for his murders. To conceal his crimes and to lead a life without sound, he lobotomizes his son (Harish Kalyan). Leading a life like a zombie, not able to enjoy any of the pleasures of life, the doctor's son can only be a mute witness to his father's psychosis. When the police smell a rat in the doctor's mysterious life and suspect that he may be abusing his son, they take him into custody but fail to incriminate him.
Now the doctor, gripped with his morbid life, flees to Australia with his son. As his mental disorder progresses, he abandons his lobotomized son in the streets of Australia. A young Indian girl (Uttara) takes pity on the wandering son and brings him home, as he is unable to talk about his whereabouts or express emotions.
With the doctor's son unable to give any details about his loved ones or their whereabouts, the young girl takes him through the streets of Australia in an attempt to find his loved ones. A terrorist network is active in Australia, training a group of young men to lead suicide missions in targets through Europe and Australia. A young suicide bomber (Hariraj) is reluctant to lead his mission and is advised to find a replacement. He finds the soulless doctor's son an easy choice to replace him in the suicide mission and tries to gain his possession from the girl.
The first 20 minutes of Aridhu Aridhu with the doctor's psychosis thrill you and makes you rejoice that Kollywood is exploring a new theme, but that joy is short-lived. We areunable to fathom the theme of the movie. Is it a mad doctor on a killing spree? A love for the disabled? Or a criticism of terrorism which springs up in the last couple of scenes?
The storyline is hollow and a viewer cannot make head or tail of it. The dialogues further add to the confusion, "Madham ille Maranam dhaan perusu" (Death is bigger than religion). This line appears throughout the movie and we don't know why. Such dialogues and screenplay are strewn throughout the movie. Lead actor Harish Kalyan doesn't have much to do as he walks around like a zombie throughout. Lead girl Uttara is chirpy and her performance is high spirited. Songs are placed in the middle of irrelevant scenes, which further push the movie on a downslide. The heroine's father is shocked to see his daughter getting intimate with the soulless Harish Kalyan, and the scene breaks into a dance number. Can you beat that? This and many other blunders make us cringe. Aridhu Aridhu is possibly an art film which ordinary mortals like us cannot appreciate.
