Plot

An old lady is killed in a locked room while five witnesses outside hear her scream for help. When the door is broken down, she is lying in a pool of blood with no sign of the killer or the murder weapon. The police, under pressure from the press and public, arrest the maid and she is sentenced for a crime she didn’t commit. This case is then forgotten by all concerned.

Three years later a mysterious amateur detective, Siddhartha, arrives at the village to piece together the clues once again to solve the impossible murder mystery.

Release

The initial idea was to have the first film in which the audience directly interacts with the filmmakers using SMS to guess the murderer prior to the ending to win prizes.
