The trend of low budget films continues with yet another horror comedy film Maya Mall, which has hit the box office on 21 July 2017. The film is directed by Govindh Lalam and features Eesha Rebba and introducing Dileep. For the laughter and the gags, the casts include Thagubothu Ramesh and Shakalaka Shankar.

Plot :

Just like the clichés of all time, falling in love and wanting to get married against the wish of their parents, this film also has similar aspects. Dileep and Mytri are swains and sneak off from their village to marry each other and land in a shopping mall for buying a few things. Due to a mishap in the mall, the couple gets stuck in the mall. The story revolves around the happenings in the mall and the horror factor in the plot. What happens after they get stuck? Do they get a way out or not? These questions will be only answered once you watch the film.

Analysis :

The movie was somewhat predictable, and the scripting was not very interesting according to the genre. The director has done a very mediocre job with the film. The background score and the editing part of the film were good enough. It is very persuasive, how the entire filming is done in a single location, the mall.

Star Performance :

Dileep being a newcomer has done a great job in the film. The female leads are always an astounding part of the film. Dialogues and narration were very monotonous, and instead of having well-known comedians in the cast, the comedy element of the film wasn’t justified as it could not invoke as much laughter as they are capable of bringing in.

What’s there?

1. The climax of the film makes it interesting to watch.

2. Dileep in his debut has done a wonderful job and Eesha has brought out a lot of depth in her performance and has impressed the audience.

3. A Low budget film with good enough horror effects.

What’s not there?

1. The story is in predictable terms.

2. There is nothing new to watch, as it very much replicated from the recent horror movies.

3. There is no depth in the emotions and is filled with silly proceedings with overblown comedy sequences.

Verdict :

It offers nothing new and is a routine in its genre. Maya Mall is a one-time watch or maybe a setback which can be ignored for the weekend.
