Aranmanai 3 trailer: Sundar C seems to have made a devotional film

Aranmanai 3, starring Arya and Raashi Khanna in the lead roles, will be released in theatres on October 14.

The trailer of director Sundar C’s latest film in the Aranmanai series was unveiled on Thursday. Titled Aranmanai 3, the director seems to have taken a 180-degree turn on his typical jump-scare fest narrative.

In the last two Aranmanai movies, divine intervention was largely passive. In Aranmanai 3, however, god seems to make a direct intervention in the climax to save humans from vengeful ghosts.

At the end of the trailer, the giant statue of a lion at the feet of a goddess comes to life to defend innocents. And that feels like a throwback to the 1990s devotional films, when gods came down from heaven to save their devotees from dark forces. So technically, Sundar C has made a Kodi Ramakrishna-esque devotional film in the mould of horror-comedy.

That seems to be a major takeaway from an otherwise indistinguishable trailer. Aranmanai 3 seems to follow the tried-and-tested theme of the horror genre. An old house, which is also the place of vengeful souls. Everyone knows a ghost is in the house. And yet no one believes it, until they experience the horror first hand.

Besides directing it, Sundar C has also played a main character in the film. It stars Arya and Raashi Khanna in the lead roles. Andrea Jeremiah returns to the franchise with Aranmanai 3. She had played a lead role in the first installment of Aranmanai. It also stars late comedy icon Vivek and Yogi Babu.

Aranmanai 3 will be released in theatres on October 14.
