Am I exaggerating when I say that horror films are ruling the roost nowadays? To an extent, yes. Romcoms always manage to impress the audiences, but nowadays the horror movies also pull the movie-goers to the screen. Shivalinga and Kathatha Chitrakathe Nirdeshana Puttana have already entertained the audiences, and now Tha (which is shortly called for Thappu) has hit the screens. Let’s see what this movie does to our minds. 


Three buddies (one cannot speak, one cannot see, and one cannot talk) are in need of money, and they stay in a haunted house. How do these three manage to interact with the ghosts? Watch the movie to know. 

Star Performances

The plot of the film is the real protagonist; it is so interesting. Vinod, who is the offspring of the film’s producer Muniratnam, plays one of the leads while Krishna and Deepak are the other two guys. Bindu Barbie essays the role of a newly married woman who eventually gets entrapped. All the actors have done a pretty good job. Roja also has an interesting role in the movie. Watch it to find out!

What’s there?

  • Tha has a different concept that will work well with the audience. 
  • The movie is interspersed with comedy too, which has become essential for horror films now. 
  • The way in which the three differently abled persons communicate with each other while being haunted by ghosts is interesting.     
  • The movie has an important message for women. 

What’s not there?

The Kannada audience may have an overdose of horror films since already two horror movies were released this year. However, this is just a minor flaw. 


This low-budget movie is produced by Munirathnam, who had a long dream of producing a Sandalwood movie. Though the movie is sprinkled with comedy, director Giridhar P, who is debuting with this movie, takes the serious route post interval. 


Tha will garner the interest of the audience due to its uniqueness. Worth watching once!
