Review of the Tamannaah horror-comedy Tamannaah Bhatia has teamed up with Rohin Venkatesh, who made his impressive debut with Adhe Kangal, for Petromax. It is a Tamil remake of Taapsee Pannu’s hit Telugu film Anando Brahma. The movie has Yogi Babu doing an important role. Munishkanth, Kaali Venkat, Sathyan, Prem, Livingston, and others are in the supporting characters. The film has Ghibran music, Dani Raymond cinematography, and Leo John Paul’s editing. The movie has garnered a lot of curiosity in the minds of the audience. The impressive trailer with references to Vijay’s speech, the cine-goers are curiously looking forward to its release. Will it live up to the viewer’s expectations? Find it out in the people’s words: A man, who fails to sell his house owing to spirit possession surrounding it, offers a considerable sum to four people to prove that an evil spirit does not haunt the building.
Petromax Review is the latest to join the tried-and-tested horror-comedy genre in Kollywood. There’s hardly any horror angle in it, but the comedy scenes that appear in the latter half make up for it. The movie starts with the plight of a dejected son who comes to Tamil Nadu from Malaysia after knowing that his parents are no more. He decides to sell the empty house in his native as he is about to return to Malaysia in a week. However, many people who showed interest in purchasing the home backed off due to the widespread rumor that evil spirits possess the building. He comes across four different people who are badly in need of money and offers them a significant sum on the condition that they stay there for a few days to prove to the outside world that the old home is safe to live. A couple of twists and a flashback story follow, which engages the audience in parts.
