Charulatha Movie Review

Sibling's story

Priyamani had proved in the past that she can be a versatile actress provided she gets good roles. Came Paruthiveeran and she hogged all limelight even winning the National award for the best actress. After a long gap, she gets to play a meaty role with a substance in Charulatha. She plays a conjoined twin. There is romance, mistaken identity and a twist.

She shoulders all responsibilities to deliver a neat performance. Thanks to her, the movie ends up as an watchable fare.
Ponkumaran has directed the film that has Skanda, Seetha and Saranya in the lead roles. Music is by Sundar C Babu. What begins as a romantic entertainer ends as and eerie thriller.


and Latha (Priyamani) are conjoined twins. They don't see that as a handicap and live happily. But call it fate when one Karthik (Skanda) enter their lives. He falls for Charu. Latha is irked. At one point, the twin are separated by surgery leading to the death of one.

The spirit of the dead sister comes to haunt the other and even goes to the extent of taking attempts to kill her. But there is a twist in the tale towards the climax.


Call it a Priyamani show. As conjoined twin, she delivers what the script wants. She has proved that she is one actress who ca copmbine glamour and performance. The rest of the cast have a minor part to play. Skanda, Seetha and Saranya form the rest. Aarthy's comedy evokes poor response.


The movie is cliched. It has too many sub-plots. The visual effects  are good The suspense elements could have been more. Sundar C Babu has given his best for background score. Charulatha is a decent attempt. But had the eerie elements added more, it could have been more convincing.


2.5 /5
