Debutant director Bhuvan Nullan’s Mo is one of the few horror-comedy flicks of the year that has been packed with a good share of comedy that works out well to make it a harmless fun flick.
Dev (Suresh Ravi), Sathish (Ramesh Thilak) and Kumar (Darbuka Siva) are fraudsters who con people for money. They device a new idea of using the fear of people for ghosts. A makeup artist Joseph Chellappa (Ramdoss) and junior artist Priya (Aishwarya Rajesh) join themg as partners to create a fake female spirit for money.
The gang goes to Pondy and starts working on the assignment and get some unexpected experiences. To know what happens to them at the end, watch the film in screens. Few minutes into the film, you can easily guess that the sole intention of the makers is to provide fun and make us laugh. The intention gets fulfilled adequately thanks to situations in the script and the presence of a lot of talented comedy artists who give their best for the film.
The main theme of the film is Reel ghost v/s Real ghost which we have earlier seen in films like Dhillukku Dhuttu. But in this film the Reel ghost episodes take a large share. Though we know very well that the Real ghost is going to appear at some point of time in the film, the sequences leading us to the same keep us engaged to a good extent mainly due to the fun and comedy part.
Verdict: Mo is a harmless fun flick under Horror-Comedy genre that provides adequate comedy and little horror. Go without expectations to have some hearty laughs.
Rating: 2.5 / 5.0
