Yet an another kollywood horror film!
2 July 2016 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Usual kollywood horror film that wants to scare you and wants to make you laugh at the same time.

Enough has been said and written about the horror films made in kollywood and this film Jackson Durai is no different, Locking up the term logic in bank locker safely, all the director wants to do is to scare you, make you laugh, scare you, make you laugh, Usual back story for the ghost and then what its the same, scare you, make you laugh, scare you, make you laugh.

Sibiraj's acting looks ameture while Satyaraj compensates with it. The only relief of the film is Yogi babu, gem of a performance with his comic timings, even the screen where he isn't shown, he makes us laugh with his one liners.
