Mohini Movie Review

Cast: Trisha Krishnan, Jackky Bhagnani, Suresh, Yogi Bala, and others
Director: Ramana Madhesh
Producer: S. Lakshman Kumar
Music Directors: Vivek-Mervin, Aruldev
Trisha Krishnan was once a dream girl in Kollywood and Tollywood film industries for almost a decade and has acted opposite almost all the leading stars in both the states. She at a time was the first choice of most of the stars and leading directors because of her glamour with bundles of talents. But of late, with a series of not so successful films and a huge influx of new talents, she lost her fame.
 
Trisha now looks to have changed her mindset and appears to be very keen on starring not in glamorous roles as before but in thriller and horror flicks now with a scope to perform. After appearing in the horror genre in Tamil-Telugu movie ‘Nayaki’, and ‘Kalavathi’, Trisha appears in another horror-movie ‘Mohini’ directed by Madesh.
 
After several delays in the release, ‘Mohini’ has finally hit the screens amidst low-expectations. Let’s see whether the movie can create any magic or not.
 

Story:
Vaishnavi (Trisha), a renowned chef by profession, visits London for her friend’s marriage. Her London visit helps her to find her soulmate Sandeep (Jackky Bhagnani). After exchanging their love for each other, the couple decides to take their relationship to next level by marrying.
 
When everything seems going fine, Vaishnavi gets possessed by an evil spirit called Mohini. Who is this Mohini and why did she possess Vaishnavi is rest of the story.
 
 
Positives:
Trisha’s performance
Comedian Yogi Babu’s comedy
Climax
 
Drawbacks:
Tried and tested storyline
Execution of the story
Too much Tamil nativity
Lackluster CG work
 
Verdict:
On the whole, ‘Mohini’ is another revenge drama of a ghost and it has nothing new to offer story-wise. Except for Trisha’s performance and few waves of laughter, the movie is a pretty average fare.
