NRI Raju (Rajeev Kanakala) decides to sell off his posh bungalow for sale after his parents die mysteriously in Jharkhand floods when they go on pilgrimage.

He call his agent friend Vishwanath (Raja Ravindra) to dispose off the property. But none will come forward as rumours spread that the bungalow is haunted by ghosts (Tapsee and others).

But four persons Babu (Shakalaka Shankar), Tulasi (Tagubotu Ramesh) and two others (Vennela Kishore, Srinivas Reddy) decide to stay in the bungalow for four days and prove that there are no ghosts in the bungalow.

To find out whether ghosts are there or not watch Anando Brahma on screen.


Filmmakers promoted the film as Tapsee starer. But Tapsee did not get much scope to perform. She failed to generate interest as her character is weekly scripted. She did not have anything to do except stand and give some dancing poses and try to scare as a ghost.

Srinivas Reddy is in his usual self and he is ok in his role with right kind of expressions. Vennela Kishore and Tagubotu Ramesh attracted with their comedy for few minutes. Shakalaka Shankar stole the show with his expressions, performance and imitating various celebrities.

Others performed their roles accordingly by passing through the motions.


Film has nothing to boast about technical values. K (Krishna Kumar) music and background score did not make any impact. Anish Tharun Kumar's cinematography failed to elevate the scenes.

Editing of Shravan left a lot to be desired. Mahi V Raghav's inexperience on debut proved to be the major drawback of the film. Production values are below average.

Production values


Mahi V Raghav on debut planned to score a hit by attracting movie lovers with a horror comedy. But in his bid, he wasted the entire first half without narrating anything but dragging the scenes. After introducing Tapsee and other characters in an interesting manner, he lost steam quickly with insipid scenes testing the patience of the viewers.

The interest of the viewers disappeared quickly as nothing happens in the first half. Compared to first half, second half is little better with Vennela Kishore,Tagubotu Ramesh and Shakalaka Shankar attracting with their routine but few comedy scenes for around 20 minutes.

But once again monotony crept in with the lack of twists and turns. Film finally ends with a routine pre climax and climax emotional filled scenes. Mahi V Raghav failed with his story, screenplay and direction. He came with a very weak script and to the top of it, failed to get the optimum out of the talented star cast and also from the technical crew.

Final Talk

Anando Brahma fails to attract.
