The In-between treat!
8 April 2020 | by ravitejapaidiSee all my reviews

The premise had an immense potential. But, some choices made by the creative team while writing sub-plots fail to create an engaging screenplay. The raw and rustic feel of the movie also takes a hit by the amateur act of the cast. Also, Director suddenly comes out of his way when he wrote some characters like the police officer who appears in the later half (you suddenly feel you're watching a regular movie). This very uneven narration would take you away. These genre movies need to be very engaging and very carefully written to give a long lasting experience.

But, this seems to be written by a team who have different schools of thinking.

Can you watch it? Of course, yes. It's not a bad movie in any form. It's just an in-between treat (neither raw nor regular)
