A good movie that has wrong critics
17 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

From my point of view this movie was a good movie that has all ingredients which a suspense/thriller movie demands. Story was OK, acting was OK, dialogues were OK according to the scene neither more nor less, cinematography was also good. I think it was a perfect movie i don't know why people have given below 5 rating with bad comments. For me if you have to watch a suspense/ thriller and horror movie then there are some rules to apply before watching. first you make an environment for the movie, you have no other work to do between the movie, you don't talk between the movie, you don't even miss a single dialogue, your lights should turn off so that your focus should be completely on the movie. So i think those who have given it less than 5 rating did not apply those rules otherwise the rating of this movie should have been not less than 6.
