Sivabalaji's solo hero film, an absurd
This is a film with yet another psychiatric disorder of a person. The director tried his best to present something novel through the flick but miserably failed in maintaining the tempo of the film. The entire first half is damn boring with a small ray of hope just before the interval bang. Again the audiences had to grope in dark for some time and finally the film gains a little momentum just before the climax.
Anil (Siva Balaji) is a film director. Anil decides to bring out his next album on 'fear'. Chitra (Madhushalini) meets him with the help of his assistant director. During the shoot, the assistant director dies and everyone predicts it as the handiwork of a ghost. ACP Chatterjee (Asish Vidyarthi) during his investigation finds the ghost and meets Sivaswamy (Rami Reddy), who calls the ghost by chanting some mantras. The ghost is none other than Anil's love Bhanumati (Nikhita). Later, Chitra also gets killed. Chatterjee predicts that Anil is the killer and tries to save his sister from getting killed by him. The film ends with the narration of the follies of Anil by ACP Chatterjee.
Several scenes in the film are quite predictable. The performance of Sivabalaji before the climax, glamour of Madhushalini and Nikhita. The comedy track between Ali, Krishna Bhagawan and Babloo. Graphics of ghost are okay.
Slow and predictable pace of the story, poor screenplay, lyrics and music. It is now known how an ACP investigates a case with the help of just two constables. At the same time, bringing a host by uttering some mantras and doing pujas is also unbelievable, that too the ghost is visible only to the ACP and no others beside him. But for the scene of 15-20 minutes span before the climax, the film has nothing much to boast of. You can conveniently ignore this film.
