Just like how his recent works Jigarthanda, Enakkul Oruvan and Jil Jung Juk have shown him in contrastive shades, you could see a different shade of Siddharth in Aval. The graphics and prosthetic work leaves a lot to be desired. Aval is a 2017 Tamil Horror thriller film written by Milind and Rau Siddharth, directed by Bhaumik Gondaliya, Siddharth and Andrea Jeremiah in the leading roles, all ia a supporting roles. Andrea is perfect as Lakshmi and it is a calk walk role for her. The scene in which psychiatrist Suresh sums up the teens case is beautifully shot with graphics of texts. Aval has only about six to seven central characters, and all of them have been put to good use.
The romance and chemistry between Siddharth and Andrea is lively.

Aval 2017 Movie Cast, Crew and Story. The flashback of the ghosts is a big let down. After all in horror-genre the template has to be the same! The actor absolutely shows no inhibition in the climax, which is a revelation. Even though the Tamil dubbing of all characters are flawless the story setting and flow is a tad alienating but is not a deterrent.
Andrea looks comfortable with her role and her performance is adequate. . Technically the film is excellent transporting the viewer to the cold climate in which the story happens and the art director also deserves a pat on the back. Story Line : — Theeran, a police officer, tries to decode a series of cold blood events based on same pattern. The horror angle is also intelligently woven but the back story and the way it unwinds turns cliched with explicit torture and killings.
The twist about the mother and daughter ghosts motivation works well in the screenplay. The first half is tight with a smooth flowing screenplay with the tension of horror and suspense building into a crescendo. After a long gap, Siddharth is back and he is good. But the real show stealer is Anisha Angelina Victor, who comes as Atul Kulkarnis elder daughter in the film, especially her performance in the interval block is mind blowing! In fact, Anisha Angelina Victor, a debutant in a prime role gets an equivalent screen space as Siddarth. On the downside the first half puts the story in a nice tangle and raises hopes of something intelligent to come but the second half is sort of a letdown as the story meanders into the familiar territory of solar eclipses, human sacrifice and Conjuring like demonic ghosts.
The message about girl child genocide is awkwardly placed and does not belong to this movie. . . . . .
