The original Harihar Nagar was a classic and its sequel, 2 Harihar Nagar worked pretty well despite its flaws. But this movie is an exercise in mediocrity, further pushed down to the level of being a below average movie due to its horrible finale. Sure its a twist, but it only exists for twist's sake as it does nothing to the storyline and makes the whole movie lose its authenticity. The actors work well except for Jagadeesh, who after a stupendous performance in the sequel, hams it up with rather unfunny jokes, for which Lal has to shoulder the blame. Ashokan does well in the few serious scenes and Mukesh and Siddique are as reliable as ever. The ladies have nothing much to do although Lakshmi Rai does well in the dance inserted to appeal to the masses. Nedumudi Venu gives an excellent performance but is let down by the script that is not sure whether to be a horror movie or to remain as a comedy ultimately resulting it to be a disappointing movie. I've given worse movies better rating but they haven't disappointed me as much as this did.
