Where did you watch this movie?

This comedic horror movie primarily revolves around Raghava, a jobless youth who whiles away his days, playing cricket with his friends and beating up antisocial elements. However, he suffers from an irrational fear of ghosts, and retreats to the safety of his home after sunset. Once he is back, he depends upon his mother to assuage his fears. On a day when Raghava and his friends are forced to abandon their regular cricket playground, they unwittingly select an abandoned ground which is rumored to be haunted. When they attempt to set up their game kit, a bizarre weather change scares them away. Raghava brings home his cricket stumps, stained with blood, apparently from a buried corpse in the ground. Not realising the significance of the event, Raghava forgets the incident and eagerly attempts to woo his sister-in-law's sister. However, suddenly, the family begins to notice a marked difference in his behaviour. Frightened by the many paranormal activities that happen around the house at night, they seek the assistance of an exorcist. It is then revealed that Raghava is possessed, by not one but three ghosts, who are intent on avenging the injustices done to them while they were alive. Will Raghava manage to escape with his life by freeing the ghosts of their discontent?
