Whether there are really ghosts in the movie or not is up to the audience to decide. They can either zero in the horror effect on real ghosts or relating to the mind. 


Individuals from different walks of life are in the wait for the last bus in an isolated place. And they are amidst dense forests. The individuals are indeed happy when the last bus reaches their area. But much to their dismay, the bus opts for a less journeyed road, and six of the passengers make up their minds to go back rather than going ahead with the journey. And what happens to these people? Well, I don’t want to unfold the rest of the story. 

Star Performances

Every actor including Avinash, Deepa Gowda, Manasa Joshi, Megashree Bhagvathar, etc. have done full justice to their roles. Prakash Belawadi, though in a brief role, deserves mention. There are many debutants in the movie.


Debutante director Arvind S D, who has also handled the script of the movie, is sure of what genre he is handling and has done a commendable job. The Last Bus is a perfect fodder for the matured inclination of the viewers.  Fear is the real hero of the movie, and the director has done full justice to this fear. This movie is filmed in the vicinity of the scenic Malnad area.
