Directed by Rohin Venkatesan, Petromax is a remake of the Telugu movie, Anando Brahma. The story revolves around a group of five people - Yamuna (Tamannaah), her friend Tinku (Munishkanth), a ghost hunter, Emotion (Yogi Babu), a few others who are in need of money. They decide to spend a night in a haunted house. The house was previously owned by a wealthy businessman named Ammanath (Prem Kumar), who committed suicide in the house.
