Kanam is a horror thriller which is dedicated to the fetus that is killed before seeing the light of the world. It is an attempt to make those young couples who do so, realize the mistake of aborting a child with no fault of its. Kanam basically revolves around the spirit of a 5 year old girl who enters the family of a young couple, following which a couple of deaths happen. Who is this girl? Why are the deaths occurring? Would the cop (Priyadarshi) investigating the case be able to find the culprit or not is what we have to look for. 


Tulasi (Sai Pallavi) and Krishna (Naga Shaurya) , a young couple aborts their child as they are very young and yet to get married. After 5 years they tie the knot. Their happy life turns dramatic when sudden deaths start in their families. Kishna’s father, Tulasi’s mother and her uncle die in suspicious conditions which worries the couple. The entry of a 5 yr old spirit Diya (Veronica) create many twists in their lives which makes Tulasi realize that there is some connection of her past with the unfortunate incidents happening now. What happens next makes the rest of the story. 

Plus Points:

  • Plot of the story
  • Sai Pallavi's performance
  • Veronica's perform

Minus Points:

  • predictable story line
  • Pale Conclusion

Technical Aspects:

  • Background Music 
  • Cinematography
  • Graphics
  • Production values


The movie gives a wonderful message along with being a thriller. This would be a good watch for those who want to have an emotional feel and get thrilled at the same time. Sai Pallavi's exceptional acting skills as a mother of 5 yr old ,makes it a one time watch. Do not expect a Bhanumati or Chinni and just go watch with a plain mind, to get involved in the story and feel the pain of the characters. 

Overall it is a one time watch is what we can say.
