Sandimuni is a 2020 Tamil language horror comedy film directed by Milka S. Selvakumar. The film stars Natty, Manisha Yadav, and Yogi Babu in the lead roles. This film marks the directorial debut of Selvakumar, who was a former associate of Raghava Lawrence. Much of the film takes place in a house in Meikarasapatti, near Palani. Yogi Babu was signed to play a second lead role.
The film reportedly revolves around Natty who plays Sandi, a civil engineer and Manisha, playing the role of a teacher. The film is set to deal with problems between a lady and a ghost.
Sandimuni is the rehash of several done-to-death horror films which we have come across in Tamil cinema over the years.
The movie, therefore, is unsurprisingly filled with clichés, to say the least, which include a palatial house, a female character whose life ends in tragedy, a powerful spirit which beats up the baddies black and blue, a protagonist possessed by the spirit, ineffective VFX scene….the list goes on.
With hardly any innovative element in the narration, characterisation and screenplay, the movie is a colossal mess. Some of the regressive dialogues, below par making style and staging of sequences remind you of films that released more than a couple of decades ago.
