After a few twists and turns by the time they complete the short film, Swathi gets killed and a Police investigation under special officer Supreet starts. Then enters another key character of Sarat (Sijju) stated as the person whom Rebecca loves once. Who kills Swathi and for more watch the movie to know the rest.
The 2 hour 13 minute long movie was produced by Dinesh N and Vishnu Kumar N is on the story of three friends who are aspiring filmmakers and want to get noticed by their work on a short film. Sai (Ronak) plays the role of the director in the movie. Veteran actress Raasi, who featured in few super hits like 'Shubakanshalu,' and 'Pelli Pandiri,' is on a comeback trail and featured in horror drama Lanka for the first time in her career. Actors Sai Ronak, Ena Saha, Sathyam Rajesh and Supreeth have done justice to their roles.
SriCharan Pakala had made the music composition for this horror thriller movie. Srimuni had directed it which is like an usual movie with huge sound effects and the characters are not coordinated perfectly. The editing part is not very perfect and the background scoring is made well. The cinematography work was upto the satisfaction.
Despite not a great story line, the characterisations and the taut screenplay never lets you get bored. Rasi has once again got an author backed role and she has carried out the role of Rebecca with great ease. All the other roles though smaller were fine. On the whole, a good try from the director with just Rasi alone in the star cast who is well-established star other than the noted artists like Supreet, Satyam Rajesh, Satya, and Sudarshan. The movie can be watched only once and those who like suspense thrillers may like it.
