The amazing plot in my native language
14 March 2018 | by harelivesSee all my reviews

Thought of placing a small note as a good wish for this movies. I watched it after watching 3 other versions of it in Malayalam (Drishyam), Hindi (Drishyam) and Tamil (Papanasam) but still found this passionately modified for the target audience. A great script by Jeethu Joseph, it has caught the entire indian continent and my small country.

Loved Jackson, Dilhani and Kusum on seeing them on their best.

My little complain is about some dialogues. It's not the way we talk our mother language sinhese these days. But if we talk real sinhala, yes those could be the ideal dialogues.
