5. Next Nuvve
If you like getting the chill even on a hot summer day, nothing can beat the adrenaline rush that a horror movie provides. And the Telugu film industry is home to many horror-comedies. We bring you five underrated spine-chilling films on ZEE5 that totally deserve your time and attention.
Next Nuvve (Next, is you) will make you laugh and scare you throughout. It is a story about four oddballs who come together and start their hotel venture. This hotel is, in fact, a haunted and deserted bungalow. Soon after opening its door to people, the owners realise that none of the guests return alive. Initially they dig up graves and hide the corpses. But the number of deaths keep multiplying to a point where it becomes impossible for them to handle. Watch Next Nuvve to see how they handle the situation.
Starring Aadi, Vaibhavi Shandilya, Brahmaji, Prithvi Raj and Posani Krishna Murali, the film will keep you hooked.
This horror-comedy, which released in 2014, never really gets old. The ghost in Geethanjali though stands out from others. All it wants is food. You would let it have your share of food if it left you alone. But what happens when four people fight with a ghost over food? The answer is a film called Geethanjali.
This one of a kind horror-comedy features Anjali, Srinivas Reddy, Raghu Babu, Rao Ramesh and Brahmanandam.
3. Anando Brahma
A deserted village. A haunted villa. Hundreds of ghost stories. A tired home owner and desperate buyers. When new tenants come over to spend a few days in the haunted villa, the blank walls become a canvas for the film. In an attempt to establish themselves as superior beings, we see a scary but also a funny ‘fight’ between humans and ghosts.
Who wins this cat and mouse race? Watch Anando Brahma starring Taapsee Pannu, Vennela Kishore and Srinivas Reddy to find out.
Kanam is a horror film which has a social cause at its root. A young couple, Thulasi and Krishna, at the age of 19, find out that Thulasi is pregnant. Regardless of her efforts, she is forced to abort the child. Five years later, the couple walks down the aisle and looks forward to their new life. Thulasi maintains silence most of the time and Krishna suggests that she get over their past. However, in a strange twist of things, everyone who forced them to abort the child dies one after the other. While Thulasi sees a pattern in the deaths, others dismiss her thoughts.
Who is behind these deaths and why? Watch Kanam, featuring Sai Pallavi and Naga Shaurya, to find out.
One of the films that changed the course of storytelling is undoubtedly Amaravathi. It is the story of a sadist and psychopath who steals embryos of pregnant women. After a series of mysterious events that take place in the city, a Special Task Force (STF) is created by the police to find out the cause and nab the criminal. What does the criminal do with those embryos and why does the criminal steal them, that uncovers later in the film.
The film is written and directed by Ravi Babu who also acts as the leading police officer of the STF. Bhumika Chawla, Sneha, Taraka Ratna and other stars feature in the film too.
