Presentation: The director has come up with an engaging storyline and while the presentation was rich, the narrative was quite absorbing. The dialogues were well written. The script was above average and the screenplay made it lot better. The background score was haunting and there are no songs in the movie. Cinematography was the main strength to this film. Editing was crisp. Costumes were well designed to suit the realistic backdrop while the art department was appealing. Shobhana has given a weighty performance and she captures full attention. Dhyaan was good for a debut attempt. Gaurav was effective, Deepak Parambol was upto the mark, Sijoy Varghese made his presence felt. Others did their bit as required and added value.
Conclusion: It takes a lot of skill to come up with engaging thrillers and ensure that the audience is hooked to the entire duration of the film. The director has succeeded in this attempt to a large extent. The first half goes about with moments of tension and shock points. The interval bang comes at the right time and the second half also sustains the momentum. There were few hiccups in the script but the overall tempo was good. At the box office, the film has enough to get a thumbs up from the audience.
