Horror movies have become the most liked subject among Kollywood audience in the last couple of years. Many films without even A-list actors have gone on to become hits. Hence, people have kept high expectations from this flick.

Arjun (Aari) works for a weekly magazine as a cartoonist. 24 years ago, mental patients including a girl named Maya were mysteriously found dead deep inside a forest and it draw their attention. Now, they set out to discover whether the story that the came across was a fiction or there was some truth in it. On the other end, we are introduced to Apsara (Nayantara). How the lead characters are interlinked forms the crux of the story.

Nayantara has proved again why the industry considers one of the best actresses in South. The technical team has played a major role in the film's success.

#Maya: Glad to finally watch an authentic horror film without provocative clothing, sleazy characters and objectifying camera angles.
#Maya: Nayanthara delivers a measured performance with great ease. Few scenes will leave you cowering in the corner. Recommended watch.
#Maya: Terrific & grossly unsettling from the first frame. Immersive writing. Wins as a bona-fide horror thriller & an intriguing whodunit.
