Prashanth's Shock, a remake of Ramgopal Verma's Bhoot, is a movie on whether there exist ghosts or not?

Interestingly, it's an entertainer with no songs, no gorgeous sets, neither action nor punch line dialogues, which are a common feature in a Tamil movie, these days. Thiyagarajan, who has produced and directed the movie deserve an appreciation for his honest and sincere attempt on the screen. Prashanth, Meena and Suhasini Manirathinam have done their best, while Saleem Sulaiman's background score add strength to the film. 

Prashanth and Meena move into their new rented flat in an apartment complex. However, he hides a truth to her that a young girl had jumped off from the flat and died, a few months ago. When Meena comes to know about it, she feels herself in a world of dark secluded from everyone. She begins walk away from her flat in the nights. Piqued by her attitude, Prashanth consults a psychiatrist Sarath Babu, who tells him that his wife suffers from a multiple personality disorder.

However, when his maidservant Kalairani insists on him that his wife is exorcised by a ghost, he decides to call a medium( one who converses to ghosts). Suhasini steps in there. Suhasini finds out that Meena is exorcised by the ghost of the young woman, who died in the flat. The ghosts real motive is found out by her and a solution is finally arrived at to the relief of Prashanth.

Prashanth looks matured and executes his part well. Meena too has played her part well. Towards the second-half, her histrionics deserve appreciation. Thiyagarajan plays a policeman in the movie, while Devan, K R Vijaya and Abbas are also in the cast.
