Also featuring Sundar C in the lead with Raashii Khanna and Tamannaah Bhatia, “Aranmanai 4″dubbed in Hindi is the same mix of horror and comedy that will appeal largely to family audiences. The film is set in a forested palace bungalow, narrating elements of supernatural mystery, comic characters, and undercurrent tensions revolving around a family and an evil force.

Nothing in the template is something you have not seen earlier. It is a stereo-typed blend of comedy, horror etc. with well-choreographed stylish dance numbers by Simran and Khushboo, the producer herself.

The film traces the story of Selvi, (Tamanna Bhatia) an extremely beautiful and doting wife, and her husband, whose picture-perfect life turns ugly when he suddenly starts to get violent with his family members. Meanwhile, Selvi’s brother, Saravanan, (Writer-director cum leading man), who is a small time advocate, is out on a mission to track what exactly happened, which leads him to a malevolent spirit that has become a haunting presence in the house.

To be precise, the film revolves around the story of a brother who tries to find out the truth behind the death of his estranged sister, who is believed to have committed suicide, only to realise that there is a malevolent paranormal force at play. Can he at least save his little niece before it’s too late?

Aranmanai 4 sets out to offer a very familiar and predictable to the core but yet enjoyable blend of horror and comedy, delivering spine-chilling thrills and laughs for audiences of all ages it does not reinvent the wheel, but it keeps intact the tried-and-tested franchise legacy in Aranmanai 4, though let me warn you it does not reinvent the wheel, but just it keeps intact the tried-and-tested franchise legacy.

While C. Sundar who proves that he knows the craft of not only the screenplay but also direction isn’t as good when it comes to acting his part, Tamannaah Bhatia is good as Selvi, the bereaved wife and beloved mother to two kids, while Raashii Khanna impresses as Maya, who is introduced as the romantic interest of the leading man.

 Yogi Babu does justice to his scenes as a comedian and just as we are wondering where on earth is this horror comedy going to lead us, during the climax, the presence of industry veterans Khushboo and Simran amps up our excitement to a very large extent. Kovai Sarala impresses us.
