"Ganga" is the Telugu version of the third installment in the Tamil film "Muni" franchise. Written, directed and produced by Raghava Lawrence, the horror comedy film is about the crew of a horror TV show, which lands in a deserted bungalow on a beach for shooting. But the house is haunted by six ghosts, who are out for revenge. What happens next forms the crux of the story.
Besides direction, Raghava Lawrence has also played the lead role and appeared in double role -- Raghava and Shiva. Taapsee Pannu and Nithya Menen have essayed the roles of the female leads. Kovai Sarala, Jayaprakash, Rajendran, Manobala, Mayilsamy, Sriman, Renuka, Pooja Ramachandran, Jangiri Madhumitha and Suhasini Maniratnam are in the supporting cast.
The audience, who have watched "Ganga", are impressed with the film and say the comic quotient is much higher than that of the previous intallments. Many took to their Twitter handles to share their verdict on the flick.
