Sivalinga is a rare kind of movie where serious scenes makes us laugh out loud than the comedy scenes.
14 April 2017 | by shobanchittuproluSee all my reviews

Shivalinga (2017): I always hate Lawrence starrer horror films because he always does some cheap horror tricks and mostly fill the movie with loud comedy which results in a half baked movie.This week I have opted for Sivalinga neglecting Mister,only because of Ritika Singh.As a huge fan of her,I wanted to watch her performance as a ghost even though I know that this movie will surely disappoint me.So did my belief come true?

Plot:

Shivalingeswar(Lawrence) is a CBCID officer who is given the responsibility of cracking a unique murder mystery of a famous coo Rahim (Shakthivel Vasu). As time passes by, he gets hitched to Satyabhama(Ritika Singh) who is in turn possessed by an evil spirit.An upset Shiva is left with the responsibility of handling both his personal and professional problems at once. Who is this evil spirit? Why is she attacking Satyabhama? Does it have any connection with the murder mystery? and how does Shiva crack this case? That forms the rest of the story.

Plus Points:

1)Ritika Singh: Surprisingly this movie has limited scope for showing her skills but still it felt new watching her in the role.Bad cinematography angles and fake make-up as ghost made her look weird but still her intensity and cuteness overcame all the drawbacks.Her dances are awesome.

2)Plot: Unlike other haunted horror stories.Sivalinga took and interesting backdrop of an investigation.

Minus Points:

1)Amateur Screenplay: With a decent plot,this movie could have been made interesting but director P.Vasu tried to make this a fun watch which resulted in amateur screenplay and scenes.Entire comedy scenes look flat and surprisingly all the serious scenes are hilarious.Especially the flashback told about Rahim's love story brought tears out of my eyes (Bcoz it is so silly). Investigative scenes made me remember my fav American Comedy Show Angie Tribeca.

2)Music: Rangu Rakkara rakkara Rakkara....... Jinga Jikka raa Jika raa

3)Miscasting of Urvasi as Lawrence's mother: We really missed Kovai Sarala in the role of Lawrence's mother.Urvasi disappoints with her silly acting.

So,Sivalinga is a rare kind of movie where serious scenes makes us laugh out loud than the comedy scenes.

My rating 5.25/10
