After a lot of hurdles, two youngsters get married and head to a farmhouse located on an island off coastal Karnataka for their honeymoon. Just when it was to be happily ever after, they experience a series of horrific incidents.

In the two-and-a-half hours that one spends in the cinema hall, one gets to see two diametrically different films in the two halves of the film. While the first part is the typical love story with the hero wooing the heroine, filled with almost all the cliches one would expect in such a genre, the second half turns into a spooky thriller, with a preachy undertone.
The film begins with a spooky sequence, where a young lady is killed following some frights. Almost immediately, there is the nearly breezy love story, which sees the usual hurdles including the rich heroine's father wanting to kill her, rather than allowing her to be with the man she loves. When the couple elopes and gets married, they head to an idyllic spot for their honeymoon, a farmhouse in an island off the Karnataka coast.
This is where the film picks up pace and gets interesting with some chilling horror scenes. There are the regular cliches of a horror film, where the heroine ends up wandering alone all the time and even goes for a swim in the middle of the night all by herself. All these are pardonable, because of the background score and some crisp editing during those scenes. But, the eventual reason for the paranormal experiences ends up being told in a rather shoddy manner.
One wonders whether it would have made more sense too have concentrated on a full-fledged thriller, right from the start. The other thing that could irk viewers is because the film takes a rather chauvinistic and preachy turn, advocating morals in a rather bizarre way. The performances are pretty much what is expected given the spectrum offered. Go for this film if you like thrills and chills and also your dose of jingoistic chauvinistic cinema.
