The film is slow paced in the starting but it definitely takes you to a great ride and you will feel good when you are in the middle of the film. Although I do feel that the ending might have been better but then thinking what I would think of the ending, I cannot come to any idea. So probably this was the best ending after all. I would point out that there is no specific soundtrack for most of the time and just the sound of the ticking of the clock when they are inside the room. And you would not even notice it because the acting of the lead is so gripping that I have seen in recent times. There is simplicity in the film. No rush in anything, the director has chosen to approach the idea slowly and effectively. And then also the length of the film is short. This film is like a creative art and like those paintings whose worth everyone cannot understand.
"A definite onetime watch for all film lovers."
