This is a sound full cinema. Rajesh Ramanath gives the stunning sound to the ears. The graphic effect is not that chilling. There are many better films already in Kannada and non Kannada languages with horror and graphic elements.
Debutant director Karthik gives a passable first half and second half is bit stretched and boring. At least half an hour of second half is trimmed it would be better.
The portions of Kashinath giving lecture on God and no Ghost. It is just a hallucination is repeated quite often in the film. When it is told once it is enough. This is taxing to the audience at frequent time.
When the character of Kashinath decline on believes of God and Ghost, it should keep away from the eyes of audience. There is no point in coming often and finally going back on his words.
The element of suspense is carried well in the first half. The revenge aspect in the second half surprises the audience.
Doing a film with no songs is difficult task to commercial films today. In that way deleting the songs the length of the film is as it is. There are so many unwanted scenes that a senior director, producer and actor Kashinath should have looked at audience point of view. How to give a crisp film – Kashinath needs a training.
Abhimanyu and Divya Sridhar have given a neat performance. Divya Sridhar as ghost is even better. Kashinath as professor of medical college gives relief but often counseling was not needed. The actor who played Shastri role is very good.
The film trump card is technique. The horror elements are less but background score by Rajesh Ramanath is striking. The sound is very important in this film. It is very well taken care.
Cameraman Umapathi shooting in the night time never misses the objects on silver screen in darkness. His top angle shots are splendid. Showing the road reverse is another striking work.
Editing needed some expert hand. Goverdhan gives a passable first half and second half he has stretched with many unwanted scenes.
Last but not Least: God and Ghost is like Hero and Villain!
IT IS PROTRACTED – Score 3/5
