Malayalam Cinema at another level!!
12 June 2019 | by nairshrutiSee all my reviews

Virus is one of the best medical doc-fiction thriller I have watched in recent times.A complete blend of reality not letting it become documentary and fiction which keeps the audience on the edge of the seat.Cinematography by Rajeev Ravi is at another level.Every single actor has contributed equally to make the film a masterpiece.Ashiq Abu should be applauded for his courage to take risks and make out of the box movies.Every malayali will feel the pain and struggle people went at that outbreak of the unfortunate epidemic.Kudos to the change happening in malayalam cinema.
