Nagesh Thiraiyarangam is the horror thriller entertainer scripted and directed by Mohammad Issack. The film is bankrolled by Rajendra M.

Aari is living with his mother, sister and brother. Ashna who is in love with Aari, introduces her friend to Aari. Ashna’s friend falls in love with Aari’s sister Athulya, who is mute. When Aari’s family decides to get Athulya married to her lover, the guy’s dad quotes a condition for the marriage. So, to meet the demands of Athulya’s future father-in-law, Aari decides to sell his Nagesh Theater. What happens next? Did her sell it or not? Find the answer on the big screen.

Star Performance

Aari had performed well. Ashna and Athulya have done the job given to them, perfectly. Other casts had done a decent job. Kaali Venkat’s comedy is quite good.


We couldn’t say that the director has come with a horror movie with a unique script. Although horror genre is a routine one, Mohammad has presented it differently. Technically the film sounds good. Srikanth Deva has done a neat work in BGM.

What’s There?

  • Aari’s performance is superb
  • Second half is interesting
  • Twists are neatly handled
  • Comedy has worked out well

What’s Not There?

  • CG work should have been better
  • Logical loopholes in few places


Nagesh Thiraiyarangam has a lot of pluses and a few minus. Although there are few logical loopholes, we need not consider it much, as it is a horror thriller. Nagesh Thiraiyarangam – One Time Watch
