Why aren't there more reviews for this movie ???
31 December 2019 | by nambiaruveetilappuSee all my reviews

This is like the Poirot stuff of Malayalam Movies. Iyer and his team goes a level beyond the CSI. This too should be made as a Web series in Netflix or something at the earliest; with some young cast - showcasing the beginnings or sequel of CBI Diary Kurippu .
