A haunting piece of art
15 July 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

If you want to feel the boldness of an unusual story telling or the chill of an unknown fear inching it's way up the spine, which you may not have experienced before..then go for this movie. A strong story line with limited characters, filmed mostly throughout a single location, building a subtle atmospheric terror without a doubt will haunt you for days. Character development at its best. Mammootty, Nedumudi Venu and Ashokan scoring in with outstanding performances. Giving the pleasure of reading a thrilling short story, the plot never losing it's tempo, keeping it all the way up to the chilling climax. Realistically and masterfully done by Director Padmarajan with a fine camera work by Shaji.
