Very well made ghost thriller
25 September 2015 | by naveensankaran18See all my reviews

The opening shots, grippy editing and camera handling makes this movie to stand out from the other so called ghost thrillers that are being made in Thamizh cinema. As soon as the movie began, the plot was very clearly presented to us and so the intention of the director.

The detailing is very good as it provides everything in the first half but we are left clueless about what they are relating to actually. We can get the clear view only in the second half. The acting of the lead characters are very crucial in this movie and they did their part very well. BGM and editing deserves special mention as they made this very gripping. Nayanthara did her part very well.

Overall, it is a very well made thriller which deserves our attention. Must watch in theaters.
