A horror tale with computers, the story begins with the backdrop of a software company and here is Prashanth (santosh) along with his five friends - Rajeev (madhu sagar), Gokhale, Vini, Preethi (meghana), Prakruthi (roshni). They are good friends and decide to go for an outing into the forests, they plan to take some shootings and have a good time. However, they get lost in the middle and eventually land up at a spooky place. Rajeev decides to check the place out and discovers a secret hideout. But then, he returns back and starts behaving weirdly. The group decides to get away from there but discover that their computers also start acting weirdly. Soon, one of the repair specialist gets killed and shocked by that, Prashant and his group take the help of a Tantrik. What happens from there forms the rest of the story.
The director has come up with an offbeat horror tale and though the presentation was good, the narrative could have been better. The dialogues were alright, the script was straight and the screenplay was good at few points. Background score was effective and the songs were just okay. Cinematography was a major highlight which played a key role, editing was also done very crisply giving the right punch. Costumes were regular and the art department worked hard in this one. As for the cast, Santosh came up with a convincing performance and Vikram also did a good job. The others were not upto the mark. The seniors like Sundar Raj, Shankar Aswath and Bharat Bhagavathar did their bit as required and nothing much from them.
The film is basically a different approach to the regular horror flicks and that is the catch point here. While the first half goes about mildly leaving the audience in a state of impatience, it is the second half when the momentum builds up and there are quite a few shock points. However, the narrative could have been much deeper with some good twists. Perhaps a tinge of comedy would have also helped to break the ice. The film will appeal to the youth audience and for those who love to have few jitters. Thanks to the sound technical values and crisp editing, the film came out neat.
