“Ghost” not only stands as a gripping thriller but also serves as the inaugural chapter of the Srini Cinematic Universe (SCU), introducing audiences to a realm where M. G. Srinivas will reprise his role as Mahesh Das from the acclaimed “Birbal Trilogy Case 1: Finding Vajramuni.“
The plot unfolds with an air of suspense as an anonymous figure and their gang seize control of the central prison in Karnataka, holding prisoners, prison officials, and ex-CBI officer Vamana Srinivasan hostage. ACP Chengappa, portrayed by the talented ensemble, spearheads the mission to resolve the hostage crisis, setting the stage for a cat-and-mouse game that will unravel hidden secrets.
The anonymous mastermind is revealed to be none other than the notorious crime boss Dalavayi Muddanna, alias “Big Daddy.” As the narrative unfolds, it becomes clear that the hijacking is a means to an end – a plan to steal concealed gold bars. The film deftly weaves a tale of betrayal, conspiracy, and the pursuit of justice as ACP Chengappa delves into the labyrinth of crime.
The intricate storyline takes a riveting turn when it is discovered that Vamana, during a CBI raid, stumbled upon the gold bars and concealed them in the prison to divert attention from a controversial gold scam. Vamana, along with the prison officer Thomas, devises a plan to privatize the prison and retrieve the gold. However, their machinations are threatened when one of Vamana’s officers, Prabhu, learns of their secrets.
As the layers of deception unfold, the audience is taken on a rollercoaster ride of emotions. Dalavayi and his gang eventually locate the hidden gold in the prison’s library, setting the stage for a confrontation that exposes the darker side of Vamana’s past.
The narrative weaves a tale of revenge as Dalavayi seeks to avenge his apparent demise, only to discover that he and his henchmen were victims of a staged accident orchestrated by Vamana and his officers. A game of cat and mouse ensues, leaving Chengappa to unravel the truth behind Dalavayi’s mysterious return.
In a stunning twist, the imposter posing as Dalavayi is revealed to be none other than Anand Rao, the son of A. N. Rao, who heads the spy agency “Pithamaha.” Anand and Rao embark on a quest for justice, exposing Vamana’s crimes and clearing Prabhu’s name.
As the film draws to a close, the revelation of Anand’s true identity hints at a sequel, leaving audiences eager for the next chapter in the Srini Cinematic Universe.
“Ghost” not only entertains with its pulse-pounding action and suspense but also delves into themes of justice, betrayal, and redemption. M. G. Srinivas has crafted a cinematic gem that not only resonates with audiences but also sets the stage for a thrilling journey into the unexplored realms of the Srini Cinematic Universe.
