The horror-comedy genre was a box office favorite in Tamil before the pandemic. Over the past two years, we haven’t seen many films in this genre. Perhaps that could change with the upcoming movie Ghosty.
Ghosty’s teaser was unveiled today by the film’s lead, Kajal Aggarwal. “Filled with entertainment mode teasers for #Ghosty featuring @iYogiBabu and myself! Perfect for Halloween,” Kajal tweeted.
A ghostly teaser introduces the main plot of the film involving two women who look alike. One is a high-ranking official and another of him is a famous actor, both of which he is played by Kajal Aggarwal. The teaser doesn’t fully unravel the cause, but it does give a glimpse into the supernatural being’s antics. And it’s wreaking havoc on cops’ lives. The main source of humor seems to come from the ghosts’ numerous pranks, including having adults speak in infant voices.
Yogi Babu plays a narrator who seems eager to make a horror comedy film in Tamil. The self-aware nature of the film may add to its high energy.
Ghosty was written and directed by Kalyaan, who previously worked on films such as Gulaebaghavali and Jackpot. The film also stars KSRavikumar, Redin Kingsley, Thangadurai, Jagan, Oorvasi, Sathyan, Adukalam Naren, Manobala, Motta Rajendran, Mayilsamy, Samiaathan, Devadarshini and Suresh Menon.
