Story


Gatam (Kalyan Ram) ECTV investigative reporter who leads a challenging professional life and personal life by getting engaged to his lady love  Megha(Shalini Pandey), however experiences nightmares whenever he stays in Room No 118 in Paradise Resort, Hyderabad.

To find out the secret behind it and also what connection it has with Aadya(Nivetha Thomas), enjoy 118 on silver screen.

Performances

Kalyan Ram tried his best to attract in the role of an investigative journalist. However he came with similar routine expressions and emotions. His body language too remained the same. His looks and get up didn't suit him at all.

Shalini Pandey looked chubby and bubbly and at times has glamour treat in sarees. However she got limited role to show her talent.

Nivetha Thomas got a key role but not much to speak about it. Nassar looked like a buffoon in the role of a doctor. Others like Prabhas Srinu, Hari teja, Meena performed according to their roles.

Technical

Sekhar Chandra's music is below average and background score failed to elevate the scenes or create any impact.

Editing of Tammiraju left a lot to be desired as there are many drags in it. Had he used scissors, there wouldn't have been any film left.

Guhan's cinematography is good. He should have worked on the story, script and screenplay before proceeding ahead. Production values are just average.

Analysis

KV.Guhan who turned director with this film, tried to attract movie lovers showing Kalyan Ram in a different role. Though he came with a good point, he after starting the narration on an interesting note lost steam as time passed.

After generating interest in the first few minutes, the story makes no head away. He tunes list less and failed with the story, screenplay and direction. Lack of twists, drags and illogical narration tested the patience of the movie lovers.

None of the characters are elevated, chemistry between Kalyan Ram and Shalini Pandey didn't set screens on fire and there are no clash points between hero and villain.

Kalyan Ram got another disaster in form of 118.

Final Talk

118 irritates with illoigical investigation.
