Star Performance

Ganesh excelled in his role. Ronica Singh is a template heroine. The rest of the stars played what is necessary for their roles.


The film is the official remake of the Tamil film, Dhillukku Dhuddu. The people who didn’t watch the original might find this interesting. This is different from that of the usual horror-comedy movies. The original film was a super hit in Tamil with hilarious comedy. Ganesh’s chocolate boy image goes missing. Yet, he had done his best in the horror-comedy film. The film has a lot of hilarious moments and Ganesh makes his fan entertain with his body language and dialogue delivery. The VFX works are quite decent. The visuals and BGM are good.

What’s There?

  • The stars had performed well
  • Ganesh’s body language and dialogues
  • VFX works

What’s Not There?

  • Fans might miss Ganesh’s romantic scenes


The film is a different horror-comedy thriller that not only entertains Ganesh fans but the general audience too.
