Film: Mo
Director: Bhuvan R.Nullan
Cast: Aishwarya Rajesh, Suresh Ravi, Ramesh Tilak, Ramdoss, Dharbuka Shiva

Not having raised any expectation, especially with a debutant director at the helm and no big names in its cast, Mo is a surprise. Far better scripted than many of the earlier films in horror genre, Mo has many hilarious moments that keep the narration moving.

The plot centers on a gang of three friends who con the gullible with their fake ghostbusting-act. Part of their act is Priya a junior artist (Aishwarya) and Chellappa, a make up man of films (Ramdoss). What happens when the team, sent by a realtor to scare away a potential buyer of an old scis the, encounters a real ghost, forms rest of the story. The gags here work for the most part. Hilarious is the back story of the ghost and the way she is packed off.

It’s a talented bunch of actors — Thilak, Shiva, Yogi Babu and newbie Suresh Ravi, who keep it going with their perfect comic-timing. Aishwarya revels as Priya, who when possessed by the ghost twists and contorts her body and gives some Math lessons to the petrified quartet. Ramdoss after Mundasupatti gets a role right up his sleeve and makes the most of it.  Mo is a 130-minute fun-ride and a pleasant time-pass.
