Gurudarshan’s directorial debut makes you sit on the edge of your seat from the first scene till the dramatic climax. Good script and narration keep the viewer hooked.
Guru (Balu Nagendra), as aspiring director, dreams of making it big in the world of filmmaking. He calls his film Lights Camera Action and takes the crew to a lonely house for shooting. Once at the location, the crew is spooked by uncanny occurrences: A stranger is heard crying under a tree, stones are thrown at the house, mysterious persons are heard moving around at night and furniture are moved.
The scared crew is left wondering who is behind these acts. The story takes a curious turn when a mullah (Basu Kumar) tells the crew that they are all dead. Apparently, all of them have been buried alive by a woman called Mayavathi in the same building where the shooting takes place. Who is Mayavathi? Why did she bury them alive? A chilling suspense reveals the answers.
Kudos to Balu Nagendra, Archana Reddy, Vijay, Chetan and Kiran Vati for their powerful performances. Cinematography by Shivashankaran is spell-binding.
