Review: Ginna is a decent horror comedy with predictable plot

Hyderabad: The much-awaited Vishnu Manchu's 'Ginna' hit the screens on 21 October. Featuring Paayal Rajput and Sunny Leone, the film's trailer promised a good horror comedy. Let's see whether the film worked at the box office.

The plot revolves around Ginna (Vishnu Manchu) who rents a tent house. But Ginna will be stuck with huge debts. Meanwhile, his childhood friend Renuka (Sunny Leone), who is very rich, comes back to India and wants to marry Ginna. But Ginna loves Swathi(Payal Rajput), and he, along with his friends, plans to cheat Renuka in the name of love and loot her money. What happens next forms the crux of the film.

Vishnu rocks as usual as comedy films are his cup of tea. Right from 'Dhee', he has proven that he is a pro in comedy timing and he followed the same in 'Ginna' as well. His dance is another surprise as he is amazing. Sunny Leone gets a major role and she is impressive. Payal Rajput looks good as the village belle. Senior actors Naresh and Suresh are decent in their roles. Chammak Chandra steals the show with his comedy. Vennela Kishore is also superb and he is a major plus point for the second half.

Coming to the technical aspects, writer Kona Venkat made sure the film is filled with fun elements. Anup Rubens' music is impressive and so is the BGM. The choreography and the production design are decent. Dialogues are funny, especially those written for Kishore and Chammak Chandra.

Director Suryaah has done a good job. Though the plot is old, the way the director has incorporated comedy without boring the audience is the best part.

The way the comedy track and horror elements have been handled is appreciable. Chammak Chandra's fun interactions with Sunny Leone have been designed well. The fun, glamor, and thrills in the second half are interesting. The Interval block establishes good interest for the second half.

The initial hour of the film looks very routine. The film starts on a slow note and takes time to hit the main plot. The actual story is narrated only after the interval. The climax feels rushed and predictable once the major twist is revealed.

On the whole, 'Ginna' is a decent horror comedy. If you ignore the predictable plot, neat comedy and passable thrills will provide you with a decent watch this holiday weekend.
