Review :

Young Sai Pallavi and Naga Shouriya are in love with each other and at one stage she becomes pregnant. When their families comes to know about, this they ask her to do abortion. The lovers are also forced to not meet each other till they complete their studies. Depressed after the abortion and not able to meet her lover, Sai Pallavi starts talking to her imaginary baby. After completing their studies the duo gets married and start to live in a separate home. A girl child also travels along with them in their journey but is not visible to their eyes. Slowly members of Sai Pallavi’s family, including her mother and uncle die followed by the death of Naga Shouriya’s father.

RJ Balaji comes as the investigation officer in the case. Seeing the continuous deaths of her family members, Sai Pallavi thinks that her husband will be next and tries to save him. Did she succeed in her attempt, who is behind all these deaths and what is the motive forms the rest of the story.

Sai Pallavi has got a solid debut in Tamil cinema. She gets to don a variety of roles as lover, family girl, wife and mother. She nails it everytime and has done exceptionally well as the mother. Naga Shouriya has also done a decent job of his role. RJ Balaji adds a bit of humour quotient to the movie. Vijay has made the movie on the basis of what will happen if the soul of an aborted baby tries to take its revenge.

He has added the thriller element to make the movie more interesting and it has worked out well too. Background music by Sam CS is an added advantage to the movie. Diya is a thriller movie which has a message with some scintillating performance.

Rating - 2.75/5
