Özet: Maya is about a village called Mayavanam which is based far away from the city. Actor Aari reaches the location following his curiosity after reading a book which states that years ago, the place used to be a mental hospital. Now in ruins, the place situated among forest area is totally abandoned and people who have visited the place believe that there is some evil spirit lurking around it. The film promises some jump scares as well and the back story of the film certainly is interesting. Apsara is a single mother under a lot of debt and tries to make a living by acting in adverts and lives with her friend Swathi who is an assistant director. Swathi's current project dwells around the character of 'Maya', based on one of the inmates of an asylum in the woods outside of Chennai and about the rumours about mysterious deaths around the asylum ever since Maya died decades ago. When Apsara gets to watch the movie as part of a publicity contest that will test the fear factor, her life changes by the surreal experience that she never expected.
