Well crafted Horror movie with variety story,direction and cinematography and technical team has done amazing job which makes it never seen Malayalam movie
6 March 2017 | by ridinbalSee all my reviews

"Well crafted Horror movie with variety story,direction and cinematography and technical team has done amazing job which makes it never seen Malayalam movie"

My rating- 3.8/5 (Very good)

Positives- 1.) Direction and story- Director (jay) took the film to next level and we have never seen this type of horror movies in Mollywood. He directed in a Hollywood style which keeps us mesmerized till the end and we doubt whether we saw a Malayalam movie or English movie. Directors like him should enter our industry and great applause to him. Story was variety and the smart part of it is that it was based on the Jewish concepts which are new to us and we may easily believe it while seeing the movie. This is a good try for a horror movie and we never felt any clichés because its story is something new to us and creating horror in it is something which upcoming directors should learn while making this genre films.

2.) Prithviraj ,Priya Anand ,Tovino and Sujith Sankar- For Prithviraj and Priya it wasn't a challenging role but they have done good performance. Tovino didn't have much screen time but he did well as police officer. Sujith Sankar has done it with ease and i really liked his performance.

3.)Cinematography- Cinematography took the film to the Hollywood level and great applause to Sujith Vasudev. His angles and certain camera technique was unique and never seen in Mollywood horror movies. His techniques succeeded in creating horror feel.

4.)Sound , edits and effects- I liked the sound effects because it also succeeded in giving feel to audience. Edits and effects were also equally great. [ To get great experience its must watch movie in theater] 5.) Songs and bgscore- I loved all songs and last 2 songs succeeded in giving haunting effect to visuals. Bg score was also great.

Negatives- 1.)Climax and ending- Climax disappointed me and ending was a let down. They should have ended smartly with a smart climax instead it was clichéd. I could see the struggle towards the end in the story line but makers could have improvised it.

2.)Prithviraj's ghost appearance- Wasn't scary at all. It looked really funny. Something could have been done to make it scarier to his role.

3.) Horror thrills- Even though cinematography and sound effects were giving horror feel the scenes didn't give any jump scares and it went normally. They should have added a lot of jump scares.

Overall- Its a must watch movie in theatres to get the feel and after pulimurgan this movie is one of the best technical perfect film. Go for it and it will be a treat for you if you are horror fan and if you are not also you will enjoy because it suits all types of audience.

My rating- 3.8/5 (very good) for full review go to- Ridinbal movie reviews
