Boy commits suicide after watching Raghava Lawrence Kanchana movie

In a bizarre incident, a teenaged school student has committed suicide after watching Raghava Lawrence’s latest film ‘Kanchana’. The film, a sequel to Lawrence’s successful ‘Muni’ a couple of years back, has been doing very well at all the centres in the State, thanks to the comic and horror elements in the film. Special appearance by ‘supreme hero’ Sarath Kumar is the talk of the town now.

Ilavarasan, a Class IX student of a Govt. School in Rajajipuram, Erode, was a resident of the Maakaliyappan Koil Street. He watched the film ‘Kanchana’, which has been running successfully at the District, along with his friends a few days back. After watching the film, the fear of the ‘evil spirit’ engulfed Ilavarasan’s heart. In the night, he used to get up from his sleep many times and would scream.

His panic-stricken parents took him to a nearby temple and applied vibhuti (sacred ash) on his forehead. On the day when the incident occurred (4th Sept.), Ilavarasan reportedly immolated himself after pouring kerosene all over his body. He was rushed to the Erode Govt. Hospital where he breathed his last.

His grieving father Dhandapani laments that his son had been telling for the past few days that a ‘black shadow’ had been following him (much like what happens in the film). “On the fateful day, he got up from his sleep around mid-night and committed self-immolation,” he breaks down. The Karungalpalayam Police are investigating the case further.

  1. Poor boy…I think he must have been hallucinating.Probably he was faint-hearted and the movie would have freaked the wits out of him.Instead of just applying vibuthi…he could have worn a Aanjaneyar locket or kept Hanuman chalisa with him(I am serious)….then the so-called “KANCHANA” would have immolated herself!Anyways….my hearfelt condolences to the family.RIP.

Hollywood movies pola realistic a irnthiruntha kuda paravala; ithu oru stupid film; antha bubly home eyum to some extent antha hero voda pleasing steps eyum vida antha padathla ethuvume nalla illa; may be the heroine also looks pleasing. Aana successful film. Ramyanom nambara maathri ithyum nambaranga!

  7. @Vasin…Ramayanamnu solliteenga.Gokka makka…Ini naan class edukama vidamattean!
    In God’s creation,if there is good,there is also evil.Newton’s third law-Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.So if there is GOD,there is DEVIL.So there are ghost and gobblins all over.Some of them can see.Some of them cannot.This movie would have had a great impact on the boy so much so that he felt that he was being followed by a “spirit”.I think he was hallucinating.But probably,he did see a “thing”…i don’t know.But whatever the cause,his death is just too unfortunate.

  8. Friends….moral of the story,do not watch a horror flick if ur faint hearted.If you have to(like me!),then keep all possible protections by ur side.If you don’t have…no worries.Just chant”RAM”and our hero(HANUMAN)will come flying to your rescue!!!!
    For Non-Hindus…….no worries.The name of Jesus and Allah are equally poweful!!!Just utter it with faith when ur threatened and see the miracle!!!!

  9. Ha Puriyuthilla ippo….God a nambina Evil eyum nambuvanga….rendum venam…enga kannu munnadi irkara examples a nambuvom…so no ramayanom…see Bill Clinton…the best example of a man; flawed but we are all flawed; he accomplished his ambitions; and he almost made her partner equal to him in terms of accomplishment; of course with her effort but his popularity made it possible; just missed. He had the stomack to take any humiliations from his wife; once Hillary slapped him in front of many people they say. 

  10. @Vasin…How could Hillary slap him infront of many people??That’s so bad.Purushana poi kai neeti adikardha??Enna kodumai edhu?Anyways,i am sick and tired of explaining to you sp leave it.You don’t have to abide to me.You do what you think is right for you.

  11. u know it’s film .if u in english film that wife slap her husband u said nothing but in tamil u take seriosly ur very stupid pls don’t discourage ragave he is greatful man he help handicape person

  12. God Devil katha explanation; purushana kai neeti….question to bring wisdom! Haiyo Vasin Indian cricketrs um neeyum serthu vaangareenga!!!!

  15. we should not make this as a news first! no one is sure that the boy died bcoz of kanchana! this can be a publicity for the film too.. think guys 🙂  kanchana team may use a normal death as a publicity for this movie na? think practically

  16. Namba cricket team ethellam pannakudatho atha pannitruku. Naan ehthellam oniku pidikatho athellam sollitriken. Vaala vendiya paiyan oro kathayala saagaran; nee innoru evil katha eduthu vidre. Kalyanom panna kadesi varaikum onna irkanum nu vaay kiliya pesara aana epdi Hilary has done it engratha parkama kai neeti adichatha mattum paarkara. Purila nu ketathukaga sonne; marupadyum offensive mode ku poga venam!!!
