Star Performance

John Cho, Michelle and Debra Messing - all these three had done a perfect job. They have neither over acted nor blank with their expressions, but they had done what is needed for their roles. Brilliant effort!


Anish Chaganty interestingly made his debut movie. The thriller film, which is filled with a lot of human emotions is just impressive. The movie that has no big star cast grabs the heart of everyone. A lot of things in the film make the audiences teary-eyed. The director has mentioned a lot about the digital technology and had taken a huge effort to bring this whodunit movie perfectly. Many scenes take us inside the story and make us travel along with the characters. The technical and production values of the movie are also good.

What's There?

  • Good script and screenplay
  • Excellent execution by the director
  • Perfect performances of the lead stars

What's Not There?

  • We could not find any big negative point in the movie


Anish Chaganty, the director’s debut movie is sure to take him to heights. The emotional values of the film impress all the audiences and while you leave the theatre, you'll be carrying some message with you. Don't miss this movie and you will be impressed with the script screenplay direction and performance!
