In a chaotic hamlet lives Bhootayya’s grandson Ayyu, who is on the lookout for a bride. There is also a situation of a mistaken death of a moneylender, named Machine Muniyappa. The film follows the comedy of errors that ensues following these two situations.
That Bhootayyana Maga Ayyu is a cult film in Sandalwood is known. Hence, there was a lot of curiosity around this film, given the title. The connection between the old one and this lies only in a few things — there are characters named Bhootayya and Ayyu, there are some actors who were part of the old team and Srujan Lokesh, whose father was Ayyu in the old film has lent his voice over to the narrative. But the film is a comedy and starkly different from the original. Does it entertain? Only in parts.
