A good thriller, the story begins with a pretty girl (Monica) who is on a run with fear that death is looming on her and a young man (Munna) saves her from the trouble. Slowly, he starts building confidence in her and in this process both of them begun getting close to each other. Love happens and they get married, time for honeymoon and they set off to a remote bungalow in Pondicherry for their special moments. But things take a twist there since Monica senses that she is being followed by someone and from then on starts a trail of terror and fear that makes her life miserable. That is the time truth comes out that sometime back her three friends who earn a lot of money get used to an extravagant lifestyle and lose their humanity with pride and arrogance. In this process, they come across an innocent LIC policy agent (Chandru) who is ragged to the core by these three friends. In this confusion, the agent is injured and he dies due to the injuries. Monica who is with the gang does not involve in the ghastly happening but then helps them clear the dead body. Soon, each one of them starts dying and it now appears that Chandru is still alive and is out for Monica’s blood. Is this true? What exactly happened between all of them? To know this, watch the movie.
The director has come up with a good subject in his debut effort and though the narration lacked a bit of intensity, the presentation was nice. He has been well supported by the music which had its own moments of hair rising shots and the camera which has caught the fear and the passion in the right mode. The editing could have been better which would have tailored the script tightly and the screenplay was acceptable. Munna has done a decent job as the handsome and caring husband and Monika was a true revelation as she oozed out the oomph factor boldly, her wild side has appealed the mass audience and her sensuality appealed the class. Chandru was the real show stealer who comes across as the innocent and a transformed maniac. The others were okay in their performance.
The director has come up with a moral issue along with the thriller and though the first half of the movie goes around the lead pair with not much scope for suspense, it is the second half that does the fear factor with the audience and gets them to the edge of the seat. However, the continuity of scenes was not correct which went against the rhythm and the movie on the whole might look a bit mild but on parts it looks terrific. It will surely be received for its new concept and the sexual appeal of Monica, perhaps a little polishing of the script would have made it a big hit.
SouthDreamZ verdict : A passable entertainer!!!
