A masterpiece medical thriller
14 June 2019 | by nairabhSee all my reviews

Watched malayalam movie Virus. It's about Nipah virus attack that happened in Kerala last year. A very intense and well crafted movie. It has huge star cast and a gripping story. The movie clearly shows how the virus attack was fought by the district administrative, hospitals and what went thru general public. Kudos to the music director the background music was neatly done which helped in creating the intensity. Suspense was built throughout. I like how they back tracked the virus and origin of it. This movie is a tribute to all heroes who lost their lives and also to the present hospital staff who fought till the end or rather still fighting.

All the actors were awesome but the best was Soubin Sahir.I found his character and his acting was the best. The writers did a awesome job and looks like lot of study material and homework has been done behind the scenes. Technically brilliant movie with good camera work.

I am sure this movie will win lot of awards. This is a good candidate for national awards too People who have just heard about Nipah in news or social media should watch this movie to get an idea how it was fought and how the back tracking was done. Calicut administrators and Kerala government were recognized by WHO and other international organizations for managing this situation in a proper manner.

Finally it's a must watch movie. DONT MISS IT. I give 9/10 for this masterpiece
