Lacks The Punch And Engagement Factor Of A Gripping Horror!
Nayanthara's Airaa seems to have a good intention as it tries to address a lot of relevant issues and talks about them in certain parts. But the majority of the film lacks the punch and the engagement factor that one would expect from a gripping horror based emotional flick. Nevertheless, it has a few moments on offer for those who enjoy Nayanthara's performance and a tinge of horror elements. If for a more engaging first half and a slightly better justification for the revenge towards the end, the film would have been a lot more engrossing and intriguing.(more)
