Story:
Anasuya (Bhoomika) is an orphan who becomes a TV reporter out of her shrewdness and talent. She proves to be the right person for doing sting operations. She stays in the house of an old man (Melkote) whom she calls uncle. But suddenly someone kills that old man.

Anasuya identifies that killer (Ravi Babu) and the real story begins then. The killer keeps on killing different people in the city and takes away one organ for their body. Police forces fail to crack the mystery of those serial murders and the purpose of taking away organs from them.

Anasuya takes it personal and aims at catching that killer. She assists police and also takes help from them till she catches him. Inspector (Abbas) helps Anasuya in that mission. After series of suspense and thrilling episodes the killer will be caught hold and will be killed. Who is that killer? Why he kills selective people and takes away organs from them? That has to be watched on screen.

Performances:
It’s Ravi Babu’s character that haunts for longer time after leaving the theaters. He has shown enough of his cruelty as a serial killer. Bhoomika performed well and in tune with the requirements of script. Nikitha is ok in her bit of role. Abbas is only a dummy in the film and he has got nothing big to do for entire 2 and half hours. Others are just in their shoes as per the script.

Sound effects are impressive and they have boosted up the horror aspect to good extent. Cinematography and scene composition are also good. The screenplay would have been more convincing and some threads appeared loosely knitted.

Ravi Babu dealt with direction part well but lost grip at a few instances. The dialogues by Nivas are ok but they too suffered with non-conviction in some parts. Especially while Bhoomika is being interviewed, she says that the interviewer’s shirt was unbuttoned and hence he is unmarried (!). She explains that-had he was married, his wife wouldn’t let him go out like that!! And the interviewer responds ‘brilliant’ for that analysis. Such dialogues are ridiculous.

In another scene looking at Ankitha’s dead body, Abbas says, “Super figure waste ayipoyindi ra”. That speaks less about Abbas’ character. Apart from that that dialogue is irrelevant in that scene.

Ravi Babu could maintain misleading attempt by showing Bhoomika using eye drops for her right eye. Such attempts are common in suspense thrillers in order to mislead people by not guessing the conclusion easily.

Analysis:
It is partly inspired from ‘Silence of the lambs’ but Ravi Babu could make it completely a different theme suiting to nativity. He has picked up tonsured serial killer’s role and the lead lady’s role from that Hollywood flick. Rest of the stuff is completely written indigenously.

First half of the film goes with thrilling and horror elements where the serial killer will be killing one after the other. Interval bang is with suspense. Second half goes with the unleashing of suspense element in the film.

The film is completely made with horror and crime elements. This murder mystery story has many cruel things to underline and the family audiences’ hardly turn on for this. If youth audiences have to be patrons for this film, they expect at least some powerful situational comedy. That’s not there in this flick. Even the glamour part is missing leaving an item song as exception. On a whole, the film appeals for those who like hard core crime thriller keeping some logics behind.
