Nandamuri Kalyan Ram who ended an extended lean patch of over a decade with ‘Pataas’, however, failed to capitalize on the success momentum and continued to deliver duds in a row again. After a series of miserable flops, he is set to try his luck with an interesting thriller ‘118’ directed by KV Guhan. The movie has already raised curiosity with its teasers, and trailers.

Let’s see whether the movie can give him any sort of relief or not.

Story:

A TV reporter Goutham (Kalyan Ram) is haunted by a dream in which he sees an unknown young lady who is on the verge of death. As he is not familiar with the girl’s face, he tries to find the whereabouts of the girl with the help of his fiancée Megha (Shalini Pandey ), friend ( Prabhas Srinu) helps him in the task. Finally, they trace that the girl who appears in Goutham’s dream is Aadhya ( Nivetha Thomas).

Who is the girl and why she appears only in his dreams, what steps did Goutham take forms the rest of the story.

Positives:

Engaging first half
Interesting theme
Actors and their performance

Negatives:

Routine flashback
The dreaming concept appears silly

Verdict:

With an engaging first half and an average second half, ‘118’ can be given a try once for its novel theme.
