Spooky College Movie Review : Spooky College is not so spooky, after all
Review: An engineering college situated in the middle of the forest is believed to be haunted. The students who have come to study there are being tormented by what many, including the audience, believe is the ghost of Hayden, the deceased owner of the college from the British era. Rishikumar (Vivek Simha) and Khushi (Kushee Ravi) are studying in the same college. Khushi experiences paranormal activities in the campus and struggles to recover from that experience. Meanwhile, the mysterious death of three students forces the management to consider shutting down the college. Rishi takes it upon himself to solve his best friend Khushi’s problem as well as the college’s problems. But, as Rishi digs deeper, he is spooked by the truth.
Vivek Simha and Khushee Ravi’s performances are the highlight of Spooky College. Vivek is cheerful and fun-loving and Khushee, who has been handed a very different role from her previous film, Dia, has aced her role. Raghu Ramanakoppa, Vijay Chendooru and Hanumante Gowda have supported the duo. There are many minor mistakes in the film, including the way the non-spooky college portions are handled. The first half is very immature. The climax is unexpected and chilling, but the beginning and the entire first half is below average. Attempts to make the college a main character is appreciated. The VFX, colour grading and sound mixing does scare the audience, but doesn’t leave any impact.
The film is recommended only if you are into a guessing game.
