Story : The film is woven around a group of disconnected characters and their conflict with myths and beliefs regarding the existence of ghosts.

Review : Konthayum Poonulum switches between scary myths and logical truths. It spreads out a varied set of characters, each of them grappling with apparitions or their own contorted beliefs. Jijo Antony, who has directed and co-scripted the film, follows a non-linear pattern to narrate this tale, wherein he constructs spooky sequences and reserves plausible explanations for the later.

On the face of it, Konthayum Poonulum boasts of some decent effort that went into the making of a script that tries to meld belief with logic. The film falters with the way the sequences are managed. The director is assisted by some seasoned, commendable cast but it doesn't help.

A money-lender who cooks up a tale of meeting a ghost to guzzle liqour finally falls prey to his own ploy. A depraved, religiously disinclined cop finds himself struggling with a nervous encounter with a woman. A photographer who prides himself in his skills with camera is flummoxed as he fails to develop the image of a corpse.

Despite the earnest attempt to churn out a riveting plot, the scenes suffer from a dreadful langour. Jiju lavishes disoriented, aimless scenes teeming with a confusing array of colours and light as if to enhance the intricacies of his plot. The act misfires as the film slumps into a drab barrage of sequences. The fluidity that flashed here and there vanishes forever.

The mystery that builds around the character Krishnan played with brilliant restraint by Kunchako Boban stays on, one of the very few factors that make the film watchable.
