Vibrant Horror movie
11 October 2015 | by ptkkiranSee all my reviews

This is probably the best horror movie I have ever watched.Maya is even comparable to the Hollywood blockbuster "The Conjuring".It deserves such greatness.I really congratulate all the team,cast and crew of the movie.The story is very well built and organized and it is been shot so well in realistic places .The music part played a great role to make the audience feel the presence of a ghost.I really appreciate the captain of the ship,director for his efforts to make such a brilliant movie.And last but not least i guess Kollywood is competing with Hollywood by making such grandeur films.I am feeling proud to be a Indian
