User Reviews

Nice mix of Horror-Mystery, Masala
12 March 2018 | by Punter_HunterSee all my reviews

The movie is a murder mystery intertwined with horror angle and comedy. Shivalingeswar (Lawrence) plays a CID officer investigating a murder case for which he has to move to a house beside an old cemetery . His wife gets possessed by a spirit . How Shiva solve the case and whats the link between murder investgation and his wife being possessed by soul forms the rest of the story.

Concept is really good with 3 genres being merged in a single move without looking forced. Rather than keeping horror moving dark they kept it light thus opening the scope for wider audience with masala comedy. Acting by all is good especially Ritika Singh.

Listing somethings that could have been better - there is not much emotional connect with the guy who got murdered, it would have really increased the euphoria of culprit getting caught in end multi folds, there should have been more suspicion on other suspects as culprit was the one that most of us would suspect to be, Sound effects and VFX could have been lot better . Horror scenes work on Background music sound effects and VFX and these things can make even a simple story more thrilling. Had they covered these things it would have been a 10 on 10 for me.

Despite all these flaws its surely a decent watch that one wont mind . i will go with 6/10
