Star Performances

With Vivek in the front, we need not think about the performances. Everyone has done their part well.


As this is a spooky genre period, this film is also like any other film of the same genre. Sai Bharath proved that he is a debutant. Technically, the film is poor. And there is no uniqueness in this movie too.

What’s There?

  • Comedy scenes make us laugh out loud
  • Vivek, Hrishikesh, Narain and Sanchita are the great pluses
  • Yet another strength is the music by Anirudh

What’s Not There?

  • No spooky element in this spooky entertainer
  • No uniqueness in the script
  • Amateurish mixing and VFX effects


On the whole, this debut attempt by Sai Bharath could be watched once not for its spooky scenes but the comedy elements, especially the beautiful facial expressions by Vivek and Sanchita. Hrishikesh, the VIP brother, is also a promising actor. Rum…. Non-spooky comedy entertainer!
