Fails to impress
30%Overall Score

Sathura Adi 3500 is a 2017 horror-thriller that dropped on Zee 5 this week. The film was written and directed by Jaison features many between actors like Rahman, Prathap Pothan and Kovai Sarala with many new faces. Karuna (Nikhil Mohan) is a dogged police officer who is determined to solve the mystery behind a civil engineer Stephen’s (Akash) suspicious murder. But trouble brews as his investigation is disrupted by Stephen’s ghost which has an avenging agenda of its own involving an old girlfriend and a real estate don among others who are linked to Stephen’s past.

The case of missing thrill

At the core, Sathura Adi 3500 suffers from a poorly written screenplay that induces little or no fear. The said ghost meant to present some tense moments land up being a rather uninteresting caricature with many of the situations falling rather flat. The background score too fails to achieve or enhance any sort of tension that may have made this narrative more watchable or original.

Veterans wasted in undefined roles.

With so many prominent actors roped in, Sathura Adi 3500, unfortunately, wastes them in very insignificant roles. They are neither important cameos that are relevant to the plot nor are they provided with solid material to sink their teeth into. The heavy lifting is left to the newcomers but none of them rises to the occasion.


The film fails to impress or excite. With a more conscious effort on writing, it could have been a decent watch.
