User Reviews

 
Engaging screenplay with unique concept.
18 April 2020 | by azarrudheenrafeeqSee all my reviews

When a investigative journalist lost his son, he try to uncover the mystery behind the disappearance of his son with the help of lucid dreams. The concept of dream is somewhat similar to Hollywood movie inception. The way they present the concept of dreams is very simplistic and understandable. Fast paced screenplay is the major positive thing in the movie. And the investigation scenes are really nail biting.The way they portrayed the relationship between father and son is really impressive. The climax twist is decent.
