The most-awaited film of Charmi, Mantra, finally saw the light. The film, which was launched on October 27 last year, faced several hiccups and there were several doubts whether the film would be released or not. In fact, the film was said to remain a milestone in the career of Charmi. The director has maintained good suspense all through the film and the best part in the film is the re-recording by Anand.
Mantra (Charmi) owns a farmhouse on the outskirts of a city. Her father is a gentleman and helped several people, though they ditch him. As a result, he falls in deep debt trap and dies. Mantra agrees to repay the loan by selling the farmhouse called Mantra Nilayam. Unfortunately, three persons, who are residing in the film die in the house and hence it earns the name of a ghost house and nobody comes forward to purchase it. The person, who has lent the money to Mantra's father meets a local goon for help to recover the money. That goon sends Hero (Sivaji) for recovery. Mantra tells him that she has no qualms to pay the money and the problem is with the sale of the building. So Hero promises to help her in selling the building for which Mantra agrees to pay him some commission as well. Hero and three of his friends go to the farmhouse and one of his friends Munuswamy (Chitram Sreenu) dies under mysterious circumstances.
