Surbhi (Tamannaah), a deaf-and-mute woman was adopted as a kid by an elite lady. After the latter's demise, a grown-up Surbhi decides to donate half of her wealth to an orphanage. Meanwhile, there's a couple, Mr. and Mrs. Desai (Sanjay Suri and Bhumika Chawla) who seem to be quite upset with Surbhi's decision.
But, a kind Surbhi decides to go ahead with the decision, unaware that the night ahead has some The Shining kind of surprise in store for her in the form of Dev (Prabhudheva), a schizophrenic patient absconding from a mental asylum.

Soon the film fit into a slasher genre and the rest of the story is Surbhi trying to escape from the psycho.
The film starts promisingly to satisfy our expectations to get maximum thrills from the film but the narratives go to flat with an immense amount of clichés in a mainstream thriller film.

Tamannah as the headstrong deaf-mute heiress to a multi-million estate is convincing but lacks the conviction of a terrorized girl, whose life is hanging by a thread.
Prabhu Deva, too, has his moments as the tormented Dev, but that sense of fear in his piercing hazel (achieved with not-so-convincing contact lenses) eyes and pathos that his back story begins to evoke, fizzles out shortly after the first half due to his similar expressions from the Karthik Subbaraj movie Mercury where he was playing a similar psychopath like character.

Khamoshi could have been an entertaining film but falls flat due to his lack of narration being engaging hence leaving us with fewer thrills and chills.
