Star Performance

Prithviraj has done an excellent job. His expressions and body language are fantastic. Saiju Kurup and Hanna fit well in the given roles. Indrajith didn’t have much to do.


Murali Gopy has come up with an exciting script, and it is executed well by Rathish Ambat. The story is well scripted, and the flashback scenes are shot well. The first half is interesting. The second half has lost its grip on the narration, and we can see certain scenes are inserted forcibly. The cast is interesting, but some of the stars didn’t get perfect roles, and their potential is wasted, especially Indrajith. The cinematography is fantastic and BGM is decent.

What’s There?

  • The script is excellent
  • The performances of the stars are appreciable
  • The film is technically sound

What’s Not There?

  • Forcedly inserted scenes irk the audience
  • There is a lag in the second half


Though the film has some minuses in the second half, overall, it gives good entertainment. If you love to enjoy a thriller, this one could be your cup of tea!
