Trip review: Below average forest-based thriller

Director

Dennis Manjunath

Star Cast

Sunainaa, Karunakaran, Yogi Babu, Rajendran, Praveen Kumar, Kallori Vinoth, VJ Siddhu

Debutant director Dennis Manjunath's Trip is a film that never takes itself seriously. In one scene, we see a gory murder and in the next, the characters crack jokes. Although Yogi Babu and Karunakaran are in good form here, the genre of the film doesn't need them. Instead, audiences need organic humor.

A group of friends goes to a forest on a leisure trip. Little did they know that it is a dangerous place that many people go missing and their dear ones have no clue about their whereabouts. Liddi (Sunainaa) initially thinks that both Azhagan(Yogi Babu) and Amudhan(Karunakaran) are brutal murderers but only later, she comes to know about their innocence. Meanwhile, friends of Liddi go in search of her and get killed one by one. The rest of the film is all about the secret behind the murders by connecting the initial backstory of tribal man-eaters.

As said earlier, the only positive thread about the film is the crackling comedy duo Yogi Babu and Karunakaran.. But they test our patience in the initial episodes with their boring one-liners

Sunainaa looks pretty and she has performed her part well to an extent but the performance of the rest of the actors is mediocre.

Technically, Uday Shankar's camera and Siddhu Kumar's score are strictly functional. Overall, Trip is a below average forest-based thriller.
