Venba, a brave lawyer, takes the case of`Psycho Jyoti` who is a murder accused. While looking for justice, Venba is also on a quest to fight against child abuse. 

Storyline

In 2004, a North Indian woman named 'Psycho' Jothi is prosecuted for the murder of 2 young men, kidnapping and murder of five children. But gets killed by the police while resisting her arrest. 15 years later, a dweller in Ooty named 'Petition' Pethuraj (K. Bhagyaraj) revives the case, indicating that Jothi is not guilty and he covets to pose a defense for her. Venba (Jyothika), Pethuraj's daughter and an inexperienced lawyer, attempts to revive the case amidst antagonists.   

When Venba chose to work on the case, society turns against her. She faces immense vituperation and humiliation. The defense, i.e. the prominent lawyer Rajarathnam (Parthiban) is a corrupt man who has no conscience of justice being bought by those who can yield it. He represents the powerful father of one of the murder victims, creates more barriers for Venba. Rajarathnam strives to break her debates in court based on technicality.  

In the process, some frightful mysteries come out and tests are pitched at Venba, who crosses numerous boundaries to drill out new data about the case that determines Jyothi wasn’t a serial killer.  

How Venba strives to get justice for Sakthijothi aka 'psycho' Jothi by crushing fake allegations against her and amidst the toxic bias of people forms the crux of the story while giving out a very crucial message.

Story 

Jyoti, a Pyscho woman in 2004 is convicted of kidnapping young children and killing them besides killing 2 guys. After 15 years, a lawyer named Vennela (Jyothika) takes up the case. Why she takes the case, what’s the relation between Jyoti and Vennela and more than all is she(Jyoti) really the culprit is the key to the film. 

Review

This movie originally made in Tamil is the first movie for director JJ Fedrick and is about child sexual abuse. Leaving beside the technical values and exactness of how court proceedings take place the movie has emotions that the audience can bond at sometimes. The story has no great drama and runs mostly in the courtroom with meaningful and sentimental dialogues here and there.  Jyoti’s past is a shock and director would have given more sense to it if he had not attached the ‘’honor killing’’ episode to her. The other major drawback is, the audience can easily know that Jyoti is falsely labelled in just no time of watching the movie. In such crime thrillers, Fedrick should have taken care to maintain the suspense till the end.  There are 5 well-known directors in the movie amongst whom Bhagyaraj plays the role of supportive father to Vennela. Director could have used him better keeping in mind his seniority.  Dubbing seems just ok and Telugu audience can taste Tamil flavour here and there. The scope for cinematography and music is less.  

Verdict

A woman-oriented legal thriller with no thrill.
