Manu gets transferred from his Bengaluru office to Coorg. Accompanying him are his wife Tanu and kids, The old house is seemingly haunted. How does the family escape?
One must hand it to director Nagaraj Kandaga, for he even makes a person who despises horror as a genre, like me, to enjoy it as a comedy. This unintentional laugh right is filled with all the cliches that one expects in horror films, be it dolls, rickety fences, old houses, garish makeup, ghastly and loud background score and, of course, children who see dead people. To add to the Indian appeal, there's even that inimitable tantrik, who mutters funny mantras.
The film also draws inspiration heavily from the Insidious franchise. Though, this becomes quite the unintentional spoof on the same. To make matters worse, the director seems to have lost track of research for his flashback sequence set in 1984. One of the actors there uses a Canon Digital SLR camera, where the name and the make is not even blurred out.
And the biggest problem lies in the casting, for not one actor, barring the lady who played the domestic help Bharati, seem to act. The expressions are minimal, if non-existent, and this takes away whatever little effort that has been invested in the film. Honestly, one wonders why parents would push their kids to be a part of films, which they would be embarrassed of when they grow up. The girl playing the ghost looks like she is dressed as one of the Avatar tribe for Comic Con.
Watch this film only if, well, never mind...
