Hero Vijay Sethupathy is a pizza delivery boy while heroine Remya Nambeesan is his live-in partner. Apart from a strong penchant for paranormal movies, thriller novels and horror television programs, Remya Nambeesan is also in the process of penning a horror novel.
Vijay Sethupathy doesn’t believe in paranormal activities and one fine day Remya Nambeesan tells him that he would soon realize that all this is not humbug. On hearing this, Vijay Sethupathy is a little confused and scared. In the meantime, he comes to know that his boss’s daughter is possessed by a spirit.
While delivering pizza to a lady, Vijay runs out of change and she goes to her neighbor’s house to ask for change. This lady gets murdered suspiciously and to make matters worse the door gets locked automatically with Vijay inside. The murdered woman’s relative comes in search of her and he also gets killed by the ‘spirit’. When Vijay is reeling under shock, he calls his partner to narrate the incidents that has happened right before him. She pacifies him promising all help and true to her words the police arrive on the spot in 20 minutes.
The police reveal yet another shocking news to Vijay. That is… four people have been killed in the house thus far and one of them is his partner Remya. They also disclose that he is a suspect and want to arrest him. However, the police are also dragged into the house and killed. Not believing that his live-in partner is dead, Vijay rushes to the pizza shop to tell its owner that his daughter’s looks and the spirit that he had just seen seem to be alike. The owner starts to suspect if his daughter has anything to do with the murders.
Is Vijay’s live-in partner a delusion? What is the reason for the murders? Who is the ‘spirit’ in the pizza shop owner’s daughter? The answer to all these interesting questions lies in Pizza!
Plus: All the actors in the film have done a good job. Interesting screenplay, direction, background score and climax are the other pluses of the film.
Minus: The slow-paced first half, the way the living-together relationship is portrayed, and a few scenes seem to be lifted straight out of some books.
In total: We are getting to see a horror film in Tamil after a long time and the story has been told very interestingly. Therefore, horror movie buffs will certainly enjoy this Pizza!
