Plot

An Anglican priest was popular in his town. His name was Father Matthew Pieris. After a holy community, Eunice, his wife, let him know about a newly married pair. The husband, Ryan Reyholds, was a talented sportsman, and his beautiful wife, Daphane Reyholds, was a typist and telephone operator. Daphane is not currently working. Father Matthew let Reynolds meet up with Steven. Steven is a cricket captain who is pursuing to become Police Officer. By this, Ryan and Steven become friends. Later Father gives Daphane a job as his Secretary and a room in their house.  Daphane was grateful for his actions and told him he could ask anything from her. Father is popular among parents for his exorcism technique to help young teen girls. After coming from his work, Father gets to see Daphane naked, which makes her afraid. Later, Father was moving on her when she was working in his office, which she accepted by closing the window. This leads to the passionate, intimate relationship between them. Eunice, who was in Lindon, somehow knew of their affair. Ryan was not still aware about it. Ryan was hospitalized for severe hypoglycemia. Father and Daphane take care of him, which seems suspicious. Later he died, and a similar condition of hypoglycemia was seen in Eunice. What is the reason for Ryan and Eunice’s condition?    What will happen to Father and Daphane’s extramarital affair?  The rest of the story deals with it.

Star Performance

Alston Kich’s role as Father Matthew was incredible.  At the start of the movie, the audience develops a trustful helping Father who, later turns into a suspicious creepy Father. Jacqueline's role as Daphane was a new look for her. From a loving and caring wife to a cheating wife, she made the audience stun by her acting. Ryan Wijayaratne’s role as Steven wins the audience's heart as it provides justice of the film with a great ending. His observation to the case of Ryan's death led to the finding of hidden masked people. Eunice's role was marvelously played by Bimsara Premarathe. Her helping nature to help Ryan and Daphane was well portrayed. Her suspicions about her husband's affair and restlessness look natural to the audience. All the other actors were as good as the main lead actors.

Analysis

The film was inspired by actual  events. It showcased the real crimes of Father Matthew Piercis, who was taken custody for the double murder of his wife Eunice, and Russel Ingram, husband of Darlene Ingram, with whom he had an affair. The storyline was filled with thriller with elements of horror. Exorcism was added to apply horror to film. Actors provide justice to the storyline –the film also depicts the beauty of Sri Lanka. The film’s main focus is on how people tend to wrong sides for their selfish desires. The film depicts adultery and extra material affair. The dialogue was perfect. The music creates suspense.

What’s There?

  • The film had a great storyline.
  • Background music creates a perfect situation for every scene.

What’s Not There?

  • Unnecessary horror elements was added.

Verdict

The film is a good choice for those who are looking for thriller films. The documentation of actual crime was well portrayed. Those who like actual crime thriller should watch this film.
