The horror comedy O Manchi Ghost, featuring Vennela Kishore and Nandita Swetha in pivotal roles, is out in theaters. Shankar K. Marthand directed the movie. Let’s see how the film goes.


The four characters in great need of money are Chaitanya (Rajat Ragava), Lakshman (Naveen Neni), Raziya (Navami Gayak), and Pavuram (Shakalaka Shankar). Following their mutual getting to know one another, Chaitanya devises a scheme to get easy money. Using the assistance of the other three, Chaitanya kidnaps his cousin Keerthi (Nandita Swetha), but they are unaware of a secret about Keerthi. The central plot of the tale is what transpires afterward.

Positive Points:

The plot of the horror comedy gets a little fascinating with the twist involving Nandita Swetha’s character. Fun moments abound in the opening half, making it watchable. The house is rocked by the antics of Vennela Kishore and Shakalaka Shankar.

The visual quality of the film is good, with good visual effects, even though it seems to have been done on a tight budget. Several sequences are made more impactful by the excellent background score written by Anup Rubens. They performed admirably, Nandita Swetha and Navami Gayak.

Negative Points:

The plot of the film is replete with cliches while having an intriguing concept. There is nothing fresh in the storyline of the movie, and the horror comedy subgenre has been overdone lately. Shakalaka Shankar and Vennela Kishore’s abilities were attempted to be capitalized on by the makers. Nagineedu and Rajat Ragavan have undeveloped characteristics.

Similar to other horror movies, O Manchi Ghost also features a flashback sequence, although it lacks the necessary emotional nuance. The film’s title is not well justified. Improving the handling of the flashback sections could have greatly improved the overall impact. As the second half progresses, typical moments take center stage.

The technical aspects:

While the background score is great, the songs are only mediocre. Nice production values and cinematography by Andrew Babu Naidu. It’s a good edit.

Shankar K. Marthand, the director, performed poorly. He ought to have given the proceedings a modicum of seriousness instead of depending entirely on amusement. There are a few decent scenes scattered throughout the thankfully short film.


O Manchi Ghost has an intriguing concept overall, however it has been told predictably. While there are a few decent moments in the first half, the second half becomes dull with rehashed scenes. The film lacks emotional depth and badly handles the pivotal flashback sequence. Both Navami Gayak and Nanditha Swetha do well in their roles. Though there are a few amusing moments provided by Vennela Kishore and Shakalaka Shankar, the whole experience is unimpressive.
