Bottomline Frightening in parts

Three things are important in a horror film — a taut screenplay, an able cameraman and a good music director. Even if one of them is missing, the film will not rise up to expectations. Director K. R. Senthilnathan has done justice to the film with good camera work and music. But the screenplay has a few loose ends which he has failed to tie up. Yogi, a still photographer, is loved by Anuja Iyer who gives herself to him completely. But Yogi does a somersault and refuses to marry her. After some time, he falls in love with Jayasrirao. One day their car rams into his first love and she dies. She comes back as a ghost to seek revenge. Yogi has performed his role convincingly, while Jayasrirao looks too mature for him. Acting wise too, she needs to improve. Anuja Iyer as the ghost has done a good job. ‘Nizhalgal’ Ravi, Chitti Babu and Arthy have executed their roles effortlessly. Sanjay’s camera work is pleasing; coupled with good lighting, it creates the much needed impact for a horror film. The scenes in the dark room are worth mentioning. The music adds to the tempo of the film. However, the five songs do not jell with the story and disturb the proceedings. The film’s climax hints at a sequel.
