Siddharth is at his usual best in the film. He proved the actor in him once again and made it clear that he is one of the talented actors in the current generation. His performance especially during the last 15 mins is a highlight for the film and his on screen chemistry with Andrea has worked very well. Andrea has got a sweet role in the film and she is also at her best in the film. Another major highlight in the film is the performance from Anisha Victor. Anisha Victor has delivered a great performance as a teenager and she is going to grab a lot of offers after this. Atul Kulkarni has got a good role in the film and he performed well as per the character limitations. Senior actor Suresh is also seen in a key role in the film. Prakash Dhalwadi has played a short role and rest of the actors have made their presence felt.

Technical department:

Technically, the film is looking very strong and the sound designing as well as the camera work is top notch. The background score by Girish is ultimate. The cinematography by Shreyas Krishna is one of the major assets of the film and the editing by Lawrence Kishore is nice. The Production values of Via Com and Etaki entertainments are rich. The running time of the film is also very less and it helped the film a lot.


Gruham is one of the rarest films which will stick to the genre. Tipped to be a horror entertainer, the film Gruham stays unique and scares the audiences during every possible scene. Unlike the other mixed genres, the film is completely pure in terms of horror elements. It’s been a long time that we have seen a complete horror film like this. The film is decorated by solid performances from the lead actors and also sound technicalities. On a whole, the film is certainly a must watch for everyone and those who loves horror films will definitely like this one.
