Brilliant, tense and deep
22 July 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Let me get one thing straight - this movie is not for the dumb or faint-hearted. Each actions unveiled in the process of this movie has layers of meanings that can be understood only on further viewings.

The director and the actors should be given credit for developing a seemingly harmless story into a movie that sends a chill down your spine. The slow first half may dupe you into believing this is another routine 80's Malayalam movie but the stunner happens when a key character is killed by the midway of the movie. The second half is saturated with thrills and many tense moments. The climax is a real stunner which will leave you thinking for a while but will have you ultimately satisfied when you think it in the whole picture's perspective.

Coming from the brilliant mind of Baby, director of Lisa, this movie relies on more psychological horror than senseless violence. Prem Nazir and Madhu do justice to their bit parts while Sreevidya is a revelation, especially in the climax. But the real scene stealer is T.G.Ravi who plays the prosecution lawyer to perfection. Shankar, Maniyanpilla Raju are their usual selves. A must have for any horror fan, another film I suggest which is even more thrilling and scary than both Lisa and Mortuary is Soudhamini (starring Jagadeesh).

And please, don't watch it alone.
