What we realize
The movie Petromax, engages the audience in start but fail to do so until end. The timing of movie is a bit too long to handle.
Tamannah, the main protagonist of the movie lacks much space. The comic scenes dominates the horror part of the movie. The horror scenes are quite few as a matter of fact which is sad for the Audience who are sitting in the hall expecting a horror movie.
Yogi Babu’s sequence, dialogues and his acting in Petromax makes up to the audience for the lame script.
And in the climax, a bit of “Amma’ sentiment, and some emotional scenes throw in movie, Petromax. These scenes makes audience wonder why they bought in the horror angle at all. The film, a little over stretched two hours in the second half which leaves their viewers exhausted.
To sum it all, one can say that Petromax is more of a time pass comedy caper than a horror film. However, movie was leaked by the sources on internet such as Movierulz or Tamilrockers to download
