irector Nagendra Prasad who has rechristened himself as Srinag for his debut Kannada film that is also made in Telugu is a gripping psychological thriller that is worth watching. The movie is about what a couple encounter in their lives. Tejaswini who has come into her own with Goolihatti has come up with a captivating performance in this outing where she plays a psychic.

Nitya suffers from a disorder that is not known but it is a kind of hallucination that she undergoes due to her parents death and her upbringing in her uncle’s place. Her mannerisms make the audience sit up and take notice. Satya heads an ad agency and he finds Nitya’s behaviour strange. In fact, director Srinag goes back to a case in 2000 when a woman was diagnosed with such a disorder for the content of this movie.

It is only in the climax that the director spells out on what medical grounds that the female lead behaves the way she does. Manish Babu as Satya has done justice to his role and it is Tejaswini who walks away with all the acting honours.

Raghuram’s music is good and apt that goes with the narration. Kalyan Sami’s cinematography passes muster. Mitra and Kempe Gowda provide comic relief.  Devaraj’s entry in the second half is dramatic and the film takes a curious turn with him.

Nagendra Prasad had done a psychological film 'Key' with Telugu actor Jagapathi Babu and another film 'Saradanga Sayantram'.

Mallikarjun Reddy has produced this bilingual that is worth a watch.
