A man who comes from Malaysia to sell his native house finds it hard, as there is a rumor spread that the building is possessed by evil spirits. As he had to return to Malaysia in the next few days, he appoints four people, who were in need of money to stay in the house to prove that it is not haunted. What happens after they enter the house? Did the Malaysian guy manage to sell the property? Watch the movie to know the answer!

Star Performance

Yogi Babu appears in a guest role and he does his job well. His comedy is good. Munishkanth Ramdoss, Sathyan, Kaali Venkat and TSK are good in their expressions, body language and dialogue delivery. What is the role of Tamannaah here? There's nothing big for her to showcase in the film, but she has done her part well.


The film is the remake of Telugu movie Anando Brahma, scripted and directed by “Mahi V Raghav.” When we expect that the movie has Tamannaah as the lead actress and she will do a full-length role, then we will be disappointed for sure. Because she's just one among the cast. The movie starts in an interesting way, but the audiences lose their interest, as the story didn't pick up at a quick pace. There are some backstories for the comedy stars, but only a few of them are interesting. The comedy in the second half had worked out well. The music composition by Ghibran is ok. But, there is no horror effect in the movie. While comparing to the original version, the remake is not much impressive.

What's There?

  • The script is good
  • Performance of the stars is impressive

What's Not There?

  • Tamannaah didn't have any special role
  • The movie didn't have the horror effect


This is yet another tested and tried horror movie that didn't leave any impact. However, for the performance of the stars and the comedy, it can be watched once!
