Following that, he experiences a slew of exciting occurrences… No more spoilers, just watch the whole thing and be thrilled.

This movie depicts Aari working at a print media company and is assigned to a horror series. While working on it, one event involving an old mental facility deep within the Mayavanam jungle interests Aari and his companion, played by Amzath Khan. Because the episode they’re working on is based on a book that depicts the narrative of a certain Maya Matthews is factual, Aari and his pal delve further into the topic, hoping that the issue they’re dealing with is nothing more than a work of fiction. Nayantara’s life, on the other hand, is recounted. She is an actress and a single mother facing major financial difficulties. The question of how her life is linked to the figure Maya Matthews is at the heart of this enthralling novel. (We can witness a new side of our Lady Superstar)
