Va Arugil Va is another classic 90’s horror film which still scares us. This film is inspired from another US horror film The Child’s Play. The success of this film led to a Kannada and Odia remake. The film focussed on 3 principle characters played by Raja , Vaishnavi and Ramya Krishnan. It was one of Ramya Krishnan’s earliest Tamil films.
Usually the ghost takes hold of a person and causes terror and makes us fear but in this case it is a doll. A possessed doll sends shivers down our spine and makes us feel the fear. It is also one of the earliest films to tell about domestic abuse.
Vaishnavi plays the abused housewife.The revenge of the doll is right and just and makes us empathize with the dead person. The horror is simple without too many scary moments. But there was just enough to make us fear till the end.
