Somehow Neela misunderstands Manu and later she gets to know at that time an unexpected event happen in her life.

How far do three thieves goes for a diamond? So how it impacts on these two persons forms the story. To that horror and crime genres is added by the director. Very simple storyline but different genre are executed on screen. It is a devil story, but we don't find any routine horror background score, frightening scenes. Even devils roam like normal persons and take revenge. Each and every twist creates curiosity, The way the story is directed is also new. In fact, the film seems to be a crime thriller at the beginning then the horror starts. In the second half love, and revenge drama runs.
Raja Goutham came back with a powerful performance, and he performed the role effortlessly. he showed right kind os expressions.chandini has also given her best performance. Rest of the cast are newcomers still they given their best accordingly. Manu has a strong storyline, directed tried to show in a different way here he slipped. Lagging scenes and slow pace narration are the backdrops. Dailouges are less but it has punch. Vishwanath Reddy Cinematography and visuals elevated movie, urgent editing is needed to be more engaging. Music is attractive, production values are good.
Manu - It is an experimental movie takes time to understand
