Bhavani is an innocent village girl, who had never seen happiness continuing in her life. All her petty wishes had been turned down and Bhavani turns frustrated at a certain point. How does she become a ghost and who are all responsible for her death? How is the media person Yamuna connected to Bhavani? Could Yamuna sort out the issues of Bhavani? Watch the seat-edge thriller in the silver screen for a complete thrill experience.

Star Performance

Nayanthara… this lady has once again proved that she could do any sorts. Whether it is a software executive, honest government officer or a strict cop, this lady pulls the roles with ease. This time, she had once again showcased an appreciable performance with Bhavani and Yamuna. Both the roles are tailor-made for Lady Superstar and thanks to Sarjun for executing it efficiently. She looks innocent as Bhavani and intelligent as Yamuna. Her body language for Bhavani is interesting. Huge variations for both the roles! Kalai has given out a natural performance and Yogi Babu too. Maathevan and Gabrella have some romantic scenes that are neat.


The story is simple and nothing special. But the specialty lies in the casting team that pulled Nayanthara on board for both these roles. Priyanka and Sarjun had done their part well in scripting and narrating. Sarjun, who was not noticed much in Echarikkai, will definitely get a good name through this horror thriller. The cinematography is excellent and we have already witnessed in the sneak peeks and the trailers. Horror scenes are perfectly captured and the aerial shots give us a real horror effect. Music by Sundaramurthy is fantastic; especially the night sounds. He had cared for the tiny sounds too. Well done Sundar! Although it has a fantastic performance-oriented script, we expect some logic in the film. But, it is slightly missing. As it is a horror thriller, Sarjun had also followed the same old horror format.

What’s There?

  • Nayanthara is the biggest plus in the film with her flawless performance
  • Performances of the rest of the stars had supported the film well
  • Sundaramurthy’s music and Sudharshan’s visuals make us feel the story as real

What’s Not There?

  • Slow paced scenes towards the end
  • Some logical loopholes


If the pre-climax scenes had been concentrated a bit extra, then this film would have got a super good rating. However, with the exemplary performances of Nayan and others, thrilling visuals and music, Airaa made the audiences get some satisfaction while returning home from the theaters. Do watch the film in theaters and experience the thrill!
