Vasu is an aspiring painter. His ancestors had been caring for a temple and he is the successor too. Maya is a gypsy, who was physically harassed and thrown into the water. She started living underwater, where she gets attached with a harmless spirit. Maya prays for Vasu and meditates to give him some power to concentrate on his art and become a successful artist. What will happen to their affection and a non-physical relationship in the future? Watch the film to know the rest.

Star Performance

Shane Nigam is fantastic with his performance and Kani is excellent with her role. Esther is okayish with her performance.


The film comes with a different script. The stars get some uniqueness in their roles and they will be remembered for years. However, some of the characters should have been designed better. Some scenes seem to be unreal and overdramatic. The film has less music and more dialogues. The cinematography is okayish.

What’s There?

  • The script is unique and deals with myths, spirits etc
  • The performance of the stars is good
  • The cinematography is fantastic

What’s Not There?

  • Not all the characters are depicted properly
  • Certain scenes seem to be overdramatic


Olu is an Art kind of movie, which might not satisfy all the audience. Yet, it could be watched, once!
