Lisaa Movie Review


Lisaa (Anjali) wants to go to the United States. But she does not want to leave her single mother alone. When Lisaa urges her mother to enter wedlock again, the latter turns down the proposal.

She also reveals that Lisaa’s father lost his life only because he married her without getting the consent of her parents, who are living in the Western Ghats.

Hence, in a bid to get the permission of her grandparents for her mother’s second marriage, Lisaa, along with her friend Jaggu (Sam Jones), goes to the Western Ghats.

Soon after reaching her grandparents’ place, Lisaa and Jaggu find that the elderly ones are not normal persons. Soon, they also realise that the senior citizens are behind the murders of many persons.

When they try to leave the place, horror haunts them. Did they manage to escape from the trap or not?


Though director Raju Viswanath has been inspired by Manoj Night Shyamalan’s The Visit, Lisaa has got not much to impress us, but for the fact that it is a 3D film.

Anjali performs well, but she has been wasted. Sam Jones is fine, while Yogi Babu and Makrand Deshpande are also there. The storytelling lacks depth and the characters fail to strike a chord.

On the other hand, P G Muthiah has come up with laudable cinematography, while certain portions send the chill down the spine.
