Lift - An IT Crime
shaeshatriashwin2 October 2021
Review: A Seat Edging Thriller with Whats gonna Happen Next. Kavin Tremendous acting lifting this Movie. Great storyline/Screenplay/Camera work is Outstanding work similar like an Hollywood Horror thriller. Extraordinary Direction for a Debut Director. Music is a Second Hero for this Film Makes Hollywood Feel. Cute Amritha with good Acting. A Must Watch Film Really Missed in a Theatre

Verdict: Blockbuster in OTT platform.

A Well Made Horror Thriller After Long Time , the BGM & Cinematography Is Brilliant.

Oru time pakalam - One time watch
By_Ranjith2 October 2021
Warning: Spoilers
2nd October 2021, Disney + Hotstar

Indian directors directing horror films tend to forget one crucial thing - horror doesn't rely much on cheesy jump scare scenes, heavy breathing or poor CGI of flying toes, horror is when the audiences are knit up with the characters on screen. The audience should know the character, they should root for him, they should atleast try to connect to him.

Though 'lift' - the brand new OTT (?!) horror film from Hotstar shows decent attempts of making a successful horror film, the movie goes down in the character development department. The audience were never given a chance to explore the personas of the lead characters, were never explained the circumstances of one scene leading to another and were never given a proper opportunity to even learn the name of the characters.

Bad pacing - that's what it is. While we think that some of the scenes should have never made it to the film's final cut, we also feel that some other scenes could've been a lot longer. For instance, that scene where they watch the news about their impending death, the director could've allowed the characters to react properly first, before going all crazy. A little bit of suspense could've perfected the scene but the film makers made messes all over the film by making it too racy, like next, next, next, no time to reflect, no time to properly react, but to say cringe dialogues, we have all the time in the world.

Awful acting, dialogues and dubbing - especially Kavin's acting and dialogues would suit a comical genre more than horror. Bigil crush Amritha either can't act for sh#t or didn't want to put much efforts in it. (OTT?!). The scene where she cries over the fake death of Guru, so humorous. The kind of reaction you shouldn't get from a horror movie. Many a times, you can notice that since the director didn't plan properly and didn't give enough time for the dialogues, characters are fast reading or filling out details in one or two seconds. Failure.

The film is not an entire failure considering the social message it is trying to convey - the capitalistic and barbaric ethics of the IT service industry. It is true and awareness should be made about it. Although what the film shows is Tamil cinema triggered corporate villain themed exaggerated version of IT Industry, in reality it is just any other company that makes you work for days and pay for hours. We may thank the makers for the inclusion of such a theme that is not vastly explored, but remember that there are million reasons to survive than having few reasons to take your own life.

To sum up, Lift doesn't lift you up much. It's draggy at the boring parts and racy at the interesting parts. Definitely not worth of the time being alloted to it, but you can play it while cooking or doing other chores and watch it every now and then, for once.

Parent's guide: A scene where we see a man and a woman fully clothed in a sexual position, it's obvious that they are indulging the act. The lead character smokes at the end of the film. There are throat slitting scenes and various scenes of committing su1c1des. A muted use of the Tamil swear word 'Punda' which means 'gunt'.

Almost scared me to death!!!
klaushutchinson5 October 2021
Warning: Spoilers
The only scary thing about this film was the horrific video clip at the end of the film. Almost scared me to death. What did I just watch!? A bunch of office workers having some kind of dance epileptic fits while a cheesy looking sleazeball creeps around them trying to sing. - Weird & honestly scary.

Will I ever be able to sleep again...

Good movie but because I don't like horror movies my rating 8/10
rifaimd1 October 2021
Good horror, thriller movie. Story is a great story The director has better told the atrocities that are going on for those who have studied IT. The screenplay was pretty awesome. Horror scenes were similar to a Hollywood movie. Kavin had an outstanding performance and his actions in many scenes were reminiscent of actor Vijay. Amrita had shown good acting. Overall a good movie lift.

Decent
aryopermono29 January 2022
To be honest, this is the first time I watch Indian movie fully.. Surprisingly, it is a quite decent movie.. Good acting, good directing, good story.. As expected, Indian movies has its own unique style, and it applies in this movie as well.. However, overall I would say that i enjoyed watching this movie..

Very engaging from start to end
rish20064 October 2021
I'll start to say that this is not really a horror movie but you can it a suspense thriller movie. Brilliant cinematography and Background score to make this a class movie. All actors acted well. This movie is very engaging and worth a watch for its good concept and content. And of course for its social message.

A very normal story with some moments
manirsoffl1 October 2021
Well the cast is good enough for the story and the screenplay. Background score is good at some moments. After around 45 mins its getting bored for sometime and then its lifting up again so it actually up and down screnplay after all. Yet the horror elements are great and end story falls totally. The story doesnt gives the justification for the horror elements. One time watcable. It wont be a big disappointment. Yet it disappoints at some places.

Kollywood enters ghost into IT field too.
SanjayWayne1 October 2021
I think this is the first IT ghost film I see in my life. The cast selection is good. Amirtha and Kavin played their role very well. The first movie moves very faster screenplay. In second half I feel a lag with some predictable. Over all one watchable.

Lengthy horror thriller, one time watchable
m-ramanan3 October 2021
RATED 6/10 Language: Tamil Source: Hotstar

One time watchable horror thriller. First half is so good and moving in good pace... the second pace becomes bit repetitive and becomes slow. The flashback story is good and good social message but that is not justifying for the movie flow.

The length is another bit problem, lot of shots made in lengthy way... if the length is reduced by 25 mins, this could have been more enjoyable Climax is good and concluded with satisfied way...

LIFT WAS TOO GOOD
banbarasu1 October 2021
#Lift: Horror mystery thriller set around an IT office & the ruthless work culture there

Charming lead pair, slick visuals, music (2 songs) & sound elements are highlights

Horror elements & the jump scares are usual, repetitive, long-drawn-out.

Interesting idea,well outcome!

Nice!
DUDE617813 October 2021
The movie was nice and intersting. A quite simple movie. Camera, Direction and acting was nice. Barely the last scene made little emotional. But it's a awesome movie.
