All the four visit a beach house of GVP’s friend. The beach house has been marked as a haunted house by the neighboring residents, since a newly married couple had committed suicide. Nikki and Bala had initially planned to join the suicide group only because Nikki who had also been a college mate of GVP was in love with GVP from her college days. This love by Nikki was unaware by GVP. As per Nikki’s request, one day Bala plans to fix up Nikki and GVP for a living together for a day which could change the suicide mind of GVP to a romantic approach on Nikki.

“Naan Kadavul” Rajendran’s last 20 minutes entry in the movie makes the audiences laughs continuously. He has played the character of a person who treats people who have been affected by ghost.
The remaining part of the movie is what the ghost is expecting. How GVP fulfills the expectation of the ghost? What happens to Bala and Karunas? Do GVP, Nikki, Karunas and Bala survive from their suicide plan?
Sam Anton has narrated the scenes nicely. G.V.Prakash Kumar’s music travels supportively for the movie. Krishnanvasanth’s camera work with green tone keeps pleasing with interest and less fear. Ruben’s editing appreciative. GVP needs to add a lot more to develop his acting skills. In some scenes GVP’s expression seems to be artificial. Nikki Galrani shows her dedication in acting.
