Kelavu Dinagala Nanthara, touted as a horror thriller fails to keep one on the edge-of-the-seat. Director Srini has tried to blend horror with comedy, and the movie falls flat without having enough meat in the story. The message in the climax is the only solace. The CGI created baby truly instills fear.The background score and the songs fail to lift the story. The comic sequences, much of which are double entendres don’t evoke laughter. Shubha Poonja excels in her role as a bubbly girl. Newbies Khiladi Lokesh, Dravya and Sonu make their presence felt. Majaa Talkies Pavan has done a commendable job for his character, which has grey shades. Go and watch it only if you are a huge fan of horror thrillers.
