As the title suggests, existential crisis is the central plot of Iruku Aana Illai directed by KM Saravanan. But the film suffers from narrative pitfalls and resorts to uninspiring thrills.
Vivanth (Venkat) meets with an accident after a late night party with friends. He gets pathetically injured on the spot and realizes there’s another casualty involved in the accident, Eden (Divya). Vivanth tries to save Eden, who is struggling for life, but to no avail. She succumbs to her injuries and passes away on the spot. A panicked Vivanth reaches home to find that Eden is following him all along. Vivanth’s house is haunted forever. When Vivanth attempts to discard her with various superstitious powers, she looks unfazed. Then Vivanth finally gets to Meet YG Mahendran, a doctor and an avid reader of ghosts and black magic. Everyone later understands that Eden is a genuine and harmless ghost. Once her desire is fulfilled, she will renounce Vivanth forever. Her only desire is to know who she is, about her family and how she died. This challenging task for Vivanth forms the rest of the story. Vivanth embarks on a journey to find her identity.
The first half is very much about setting the agenda for the film which is explained in detail above. Aadhavan as Vivanth’s friends manages to bring smiles occasionally and sometimes fails miserably too. Billed as a horror comedy, the film deviates from its original theme and ends up a damp squib. The second half is reasonably interesting and picks up steam towards the end, thanks to an unexpected twist.
A neat performance from Vivanth, Eden and Aadhavan. Debutant director Saravanan could have tweaked the plot and woven an engaging script, but he fails to grab his opportunity.
