Story Details
A filmmaker goes to check out a haunted house in Ooty to seek inspiration for a horror film, not realising that the place has a connection with his past.
Others Comment:
The flashback portion, a standard thwarted romance involving Charlie the clown (Jai), his lover Shenbagavalli (Janani) and Joy, the girl who Charlie wants to adopt, doesn't hit us hard enough emotionally, though it does tie-in with the film's initial comments about fringe outfits intimidating filmmakers. The antagonists, which includes Moorthy (Nagineedu), a wily politician who will stop at nothing to rise in his career, are also hardly threatening that the film loses some intensity once it tells us why the eerie events are happening. Even the climactic twist feels perfunctory and doesn't make us sit up, unlike the ones we got in films like Pizza and Maya. Yuvan Shankar Raja, whose name is credited after the director's in the title credits signifying his importance to the project, comes up with an eerie theme and a score that is unsettling, though the songs, especially a duet between Jeeva and Jacqueline, only serve to increase the length of the film.
