Charulatha, which is directed by Pon Kumaran, is horror movie and it is inspired from the 2007 Thai movie Alone starring pop singer Marsha Wattanapanich in the lead role. The filmmakers deserve a special appreciation for getting the remake rights from the original filmmaker. The movie, which is made simultaneously in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada, is the story of a conjoined twins. Priyamani is playing identical twins, while Malayalam actor Skandha appears as protagonist in the film.
Charulatha features Saranya Ponvannan, Seetha, Sai Sasi and Aarthi in other important roles. Priyamani’s performance as a conjoined twins is going to be the biggest highlight of the film.
Thus far, in Tamil films, we’ve seen brothers, uncles and aunts, mother and son, father and daughter, friends all being separated. But in Chaarulatha, a conjoined twin is separated. Well, this is told in a very thrillingly; thanks to the racy script. The director has included paranormal activity, loud violin sounds at the background, with some unexpected twists and turns to make the story interesting.
Charu and Latha are conjoined twins with different attitudes altogether. While one is calm the other is the rough-and-tough type. To substantiate this, the director has ensured that both of them sport a totally different get-up! Both of them love each other very much and make it a point to stick together no matter what.
Both the girls are interested in violin and start attending classes to learn the instrument. During these classes they meet Kamal, the hero. While both of them fall in love with him, he is attracted towards Charu. When Latha comes to know about this, problems arise between the sisters. They decide to undergo a surgery and separate. Unfortunately, during this surgery, Latha dies.
Even after her death, Latha roams around as a spirit with the sole aim of separating the lovers. The rest of the story is aimed at finding the answers to: What happens to Charu and Kamal’s love? What happened to Latha’s spirit? (Apart from this, there are a few twists as well. It is better left for the audiences to enjoy at the theaters!)
