A group of kids are desperate for a place to have fun and play, and Dhilip Subbarayan who is a low time kidnapper plans on abducting the colony kids by using that as a reason to lure them into an abandon haunted palace by promising them a spacious ground to play.
Nithish is the son of a multimillionaire who grows up under his guardians care. As he is the only heir and an orphan, the guardians decide to kill him at the haunted palace and pretend that the ghost killed him, so that they can loot all the assets and money which belongs to him.
A real estate guy gets to know the value of the abandon palace and decides to remodel and sell it. In order to do that he has to get rid of the supernatural entities which surrounds the house and make the locals believe that it is safe to live there. So he brings in a priest to perform an exorcism and cleanse the home.
After a point they all get caught inside the palace and are personally terrorised by actual spirits; Gheetha and another child ghost. The rest of the plot revolves around how they escape the house, and how the kids help fight the spirits and choose between good and evil.
Stunt master Dhilip Subbarayan can be seen through out the film, and he has pulled of his grey shaded role really well. Though Gheetha's scary look works only in parts, she had delivered a decent performance. Pasanga 2 fame Nishesh has done a good job with delivering his lines perfectly, and convincing the audience with his honest and young acting. Likewise, the girl who plays the role of a ghost kid looks completely adorable and cute. The rest of the kids and cast have done justice in playing their parts neatly.
Sangu Chakaram, follows the usual routine of a horror flick, but with little scary elements. Debutant Maarison has attempted to make a light hearted horror film which throws the limelight on kids and their innocence. Though he has done a good job at the directorial department, he falters with the screenplay as the first half of the movie is draggy. Still, Maarison manages to deliver a decent movie with a moral about how people who lust after money are the actual scary ones.
The team could have focused more on graphics as it looked a little fake and funny to watch at. Shabir Tabare Alam's has provided the tunes for the film, and his scores justify the movie's genre. G Ravi Kannan's cinematography skills come to the fore and he has shot well.
In short, Sangu Chakkaram, is a light hearted watch.
