Hidden Gem!
22 November 2017 | by ajith-v-mSee all my reviews

This movie sure was well worth my time. A decent thriller drama, the villain in this movie did an exemplary performance, certainly award winning.

If you like slow burn thrillers that gets into your skin and makes you want to guess the next scene, this is for you.
