Why EERAM 2 could have been a better title than U TURN?
Very rarely certain films do create an aura of discussions and debates even post-the show. The lovely part of such a situation is where the fervent film buffs come up with extended versions of their imaginations and add up more suggestions on title and even the modifications too. In the recent years, it happened with films like Thani Oruvan and Vikram Vedha, where curiously discussed about the sequel too. Apparently, EERAM has been one among such league, where it still remains to be an unbeatable supernatural thriller, which commuted us into a different world.
As an ardent film buff of suspense, supernatural thrillers and mystery based films, I happened to watch Pawan Kumar’s Kannada version of U Turn consecutively for three continuous days. It’s a ritual of every film buff, where they come across an unparalleled film and they have an egoistic joy or pride in bringing others to the theatres for taking a credit of it.
Yes, I did the same of bringing every friend of mine to watch the film as it was released in Escape Cinemas before couple of years. Even during its official announcement on remakes, it become a much fascinating thing for to share how fabulous the experience is going to be for Tamil and Telugu audiences to enjoy a hard-hitting mystery thriller.
Finally, after watching the Tamil version, I had an idea popped up in my mind, especially with a fantastic performance from everyone, especially Aadhi, why not the film be titled as ‘EERAM 2’. Of course, Aadhi played a police officer in that mystery-thriller and this film could be recorded as the events that happen after the ending of ‘Eeram’ in his life years after the tragedies and mysteries that he underwent. Naturally, there is a dialogue in the film, which we come across in the trailer as well “It’s better that certain questions remain unanswered in life”. This could be very well related to his own experience in Eeram.
