the evil spirit haunting the house and also escape from the wrath

The director of the movie, Murali should now attempt to make a
movie with an original script. Perhaps that would be a real test of
his abilities. Namo Boothatma will make you squirm with
fear and laugh at the same time.
It is a complete entertainer that could be watched over the weekend. Over all a good attempt.
