Vaishnavi (Trisha) is a leading chef and she goes to London with her aides Panju (Yogi Babu) and Balki (Swaminathan). In the United Kingdom, she comes across Sandeep (Jackky Bhagnani) and it’s love at first sight.
Even as things are going on smooth, Vaishnavi and her friends go on a boat trip. During the journey, Vaishnavi finds a conch shell.
While trying to blow the shell, a spirit enters her body. The spirit belongs to Mohini (Trisha, again), a look alike of Vaishnavi and it wants to take revenge on those who are behind her death.
It also emerges that Sandeep is linked to the antagonist (Mukesh Tiwari), who is responsible for Mohini’s death. With Mohini trying to kill both, others realise the seriousness.
The rest is all about what has really happened to Mohini, whether the spirit took revenge or not and what happened to the love story of Vaishnavi and Sandeep.
Mohini promised a lot thanks to Trisha and her performance in a few such eerie thrillers before. The film directed by Madhesh, which has its own moments, looks better on paper than on screen.
The two big highlights of the movie are Trisha’s terrific performance and cinematography. While Yogi Babu manages to evoke laughter with a few one-liners, others in the cast are adequate.
In many scenes, we get a feeling of watching them before since Kollywood is flooded with revenge ghost thrillers. Despite all these, Mohini impresses us in parts due to the screen space of Trisha and beautifully picturised scenes.
