Trisha Krishnan's much-delayed "Nayagi" ("Nayaki" in Telugu) is a horror-comedy movie, which has been written and directed by Goverdhan Reddy aka Govi. The bilingual movie has been jointly bankrolled by Giridhar Mamidipally and Padmaja Mamidipally. While the Tollywood version of the film was released in August, the Tamil version is seeing the light of the day in theatres on Friday (Sept. 16) evening.

"Nayagi" stars Trisha and Ganesh Venkatraman in the lead roles, and Satyam Rajesh, Sushma Raj, Jayaprakash, Manobala, Kovai Sarala, Brahmanandam and others as supporting cast. The film features cinematography by Jagadeesh Cheekati and editing by Gautham Raju. Raghu Kunche has composed the songs, while Sai Karthik has scored the background music for the film.

Like in almost every Indian horror movie, the main story is set in a haunted house. Situations make a young unmarried couple (Satyam Rajesh and Sushma Raj) take shelter in a bungalow at a deserted place. They soon realise that the place is possessed by the spirit of Nayagi (Trisha), who has a history of killing men. What follows next is the interesting part of the story.

The Telugu version of the film had failed to impress the audience, making the film bomb at the box office. It has to be seen how the Tamil audience will receive the film.
