The Tamil dubbed movie ‘Dora’ has hit the theaters today on 1st July. It is the dubbed version of Jackson Durai. The teaser and trailers of the movie has already created hype for the movie. The father and son duo Satharaj and Sibiraj played the lead role in this horror flick. Let’s see the story line.
Story: Dorapuram, a place in the village which is haunted by ghosts and villagers restrains themselves from stepping out of their houses after 9 pm. Satya (Sibiraja) is a police man who is sent on an assignment to the village and he falls in the love of Viji (Bindu Madhavi). On the other side, Viji’s cousin Veera (Karunakaran) is also in love with Viji and wants to get marry her. Satya approaches Vijji’s father for his daughter’s marriage. He challenges Satya and Veera to stay in the haunted bungalow for seven days and that whoever makes it alive out of the place will get to marry his daughter. Both accepted the challenges and decided to stay in haunted bungalow. The paranormal activities start immediately. What will happen next? Form the rest of the story.
Performance: Satyaraj tried to deliver his best but he got limited screen space. The performance of Sibiraj is average and he became fail to grab the attention of the audiences. Bindhu Madhavi has done justification with her role but her character lacks clarity. Comedian Karunakaran became successful to laugh to the audiences and his comic timing is good. Rest of the cast are just filler.
Technical: The movie is based on the unique concept. The major highlight of the movie is its pre-interval episode. The director has become fail to deliver the movie in proper way and the main drawback of the movie is weak story line and narration. The movie lacks clarity and there are number of loopholes in the story. The director tried to use horror and comedy together but the improper narration of the movie spoiled the entertainment level. The cinematography work is handled by Yuvaraj which is good. The colourful frames are the main asset of the movie. The background is scored by Siddharth Vipin , is ok but fail to elevate the scenes. The background music is not scary and repeated it on several place. Visual effects are decent.
Analysis: It is poorly executed and time wasted horror comedy movie. There is lack of entertainment elements and only few comedy scenes are ok. The Ghost makes up and costumes are good but the weak direction and screenplay spoiled the entertainment level.
