A movie made with a lot of heart... 10/10
6 October 2018 | by aravindprasannan1995See all my reviews

Great plot, good execution, and great performances made this a memorable outing for me...

First of all, would love to see Vishnu Visal going forward selecting good stories like this. Indru Netru Naalai was a similar selection from him. Here too, he selected a proper psycho-thriller, which I haven't seen executed this well in recent years in Indian cinema. Making a 2hr 45 min long movie takes guts these days. It shows how confident the director was, with the content.

A lot of set-ups and pay-offs are there in the movie, which spring up every now and then making it interesting. The BG Score by Ghibran was great, kept me glued to the screen. The children performed so well in their respective roles, and so did Amala Paul, Kali Venkat, Nizhalgal Ravi, etc.. The twists were believable, and not the familiar one-twist saves all kindof mediocre stuff.

It tests your observation throwing stuff right in front of your eyes, and hiding them perfectly. Worth a watch...
