Story of the Ghost readied by Praveen Sattatu is to show Nagarjuna in an action avatar. He starts the proceedings with action sequences setting the tone for the narration. Just like in PSV Garuda Vega he generates interest by unraveling each and every twist accordingly. He blended the action sequences with the right kind of emotions.

Praveen Sattatu's story is interesting and exciting and it is treat to Akkineni fans and action movie lovers.
Nagarjuna who late has been doing feel-good romantic and family entertainers, deviated and came up with an out and out action entertainer. He excelled in intense action and stunt scenes composed by the stunt choreographers. He showed good emotions while trying to save his sister and nice. Nagarjuna as usual looked slim and fit to play the role of an Interpol agent.
Sonal Chauhan played the second fiddle to Nagarjuna and even she performed breathtaking stunts. Gul Panag got the important role of Nagarjuna's sister and she did well in her emotions. Aneka Surendran played the role of Nagarjuna's niece and she looked bubbly. Others like Ravi Varma, Srikanth Iyengar performed according to their roles.
Songs of Bharatt-Saurabh didn't make an impact. Mark Robin however with his background music maintained the intensity. Dialogues are ok and Dharmendra Kakarala's editing could have been far better. Production values are good.
Altogether, Praveen Sattaru thrilled Akkineni fans by showing Nagarjuna in a completely different way. None would have expected such transformation from Nagarjuna. The film has everything action movie lovers expect along with the emotions. However few may put off as the film lacks connectivity. Had Praveen Sattaru fine-tuned the story and script and added few twists and turns, along with few impactful emotions, The Ghost would have made a powerful impact. Considering all these elements, cinejosh goes with a 2.75 rating for The Ghost.
