The movie kicks off in a dark village named ‘Mayavanam’ and a woman (Maya) loses her life due to operation failure. Later whomever visits the village will definitely face death. Lots of speculations rise due to this. Vasanth, who plays the lead role goes there along with his friends to investigate the mystery behind all these death which is taking in that place. Nayanthara enters the picture as a single mother. How the hero unravels the mystery of the ghost and how the ghost haunts them should be watched on the big screen.
Nayanthara steals the show. She has shouldered the movie on her shoulders. Her role as a single mother and a scared lady was top-notch. No other could have done that role so perfectly. Nayanthara proves only she can do a full-fledged female centric movie. Aari is slowly evolving as an actor. This time he has done a good role and has done basic home work to essay role of an artist. His body language also speaks a lot. The cute baby is the next show-stopper. Her cute expressions and eyes speak a lot. Robo Shankar appears in few scenes. Chandramouli, Mime Gopi are also part of the cast.
Ron Ethan Yohaan's Music is the biggest plus. The debut composer knows when to mute and when to provide the sound. Lots of thrills and chills provided by the composer. Sathyan Sooryan's camera work also creates some tensed moments. Dim lighting and some angles give us scary moments. No wonder the distributor came forward to pay 5 lakhs prize for those who watch the movie without drop in pulse and Blood pressure. But the movie fails in screenplay. The sluggish screenplay is the real ghost. The second half has few scenes which will take us by surprise and they are worthy. But before that we lose patience and interest on the movie due to the slow paced screenplay.
The movie is another horror movie where the director has tried to break the usual commercial cliches. But he has failed in the screenplay department. But the sound engineering and technical aspects like editing and cinematography carry the movie throughout. The movie doesn't have any comedy or song sequences too. A different attempt indeed
