Ghosty Movie Review
The film has a few plus points, including Kajal Aggarwal‘s performance in some scenes, Yogi Babu’s witty one-liners, and KS Ravi Kumar’s portrayal of a gangster in a funny role. Actor Jai also delivers a meaningful cameo, despite appearing on-screen for only five minutes. Urvashi and Rajendran justify their positions and evoke laughs.
However, the film falls short in several aspects. Kajal Aggarwal’s unimpressive performance, lack of substance in her character, and the film’s meaningless plot leave the audience wondering what the director wants to convey.
The horror scenes are not scary and appear quite funny instead. The director intentionally creates a lag in the settings, especially those of KS Ravi Kumar, and the emotional angle does not work well either. The reveal of the suspense in the latter half disappoints the audience. The film has only one forgettable song, and the excessive makeup applied to the faces of Kajal and KS Ravi Kumar is noticeable.
Overall, Kajal Aggarwal’s Ghosty fails to deliver as a horror-comedy film. The poor writing, screenplay, and lack of scares or laughs make it a tedious watch. Even Kajal Aggarwal’s star power cannot save the film. It’s best to skip it.
