Agent Sai Srinivas Athreya, the Naveen Polishetty starrer, revolving around a homegrown detective and his attempt to dissect the modus operandi behind a mysterious crime, gave a new lease of life to the detective-thriller genre. Bhoothaddam Bhaskar Narayana, though cut from a different cloth, tells another story of an underdog detective’s attempt to nab a serial killer.
Headlined by Shiva Kandukuri and Rashi Singh, the film is written and directed by Purushotham Raaj, slated to release worldwide on March 31. The film’s captivating teaser was launched by Teja Sajja today. The glimpse starts with a cop talking about a series of crimes committed by a psychopath 18 years ago and the irony of not receiving any complaint about it.
There’s immense curiosity around the identity of the killer and the cops are leaving no stone unturned to crack the case. They take help of a small-time detective Bhoothaddam Bhaskar Narayana to solve it and the latter senses the case as an opportunity to turn famous overnight. However, an elderly man says that Bhaskar’s horoscope doesn’t foresee his turn as a detective in the future.
As Bhaskar digs deeper into the case, he comes across a chilling mythical backstory with a personal connect that’ll take him closer to the killer. The killer’s crimes direct him towards a pattern revolving around the number 9. Bhaskar’s life is in danger and the mystery is deeper than what he envisages it to be. Where will this case take him to? The nailbiting teaser leaves us craving for more.
