Five students, who have the hearing and speaking disabilities, were partying. While they drink and drive, an accident took place. Their rash driving killed a man and the friends, who try to hide the accident, cremated him in a forest. When they thought that none know about the crime made, a shocking incident happened and they run for life. What is the issue, they face after cremating the man? Watch the film in theaters!

Star Performance

Prabhu Deva has donned the antagonist and has given his career-best performance. All the other stars have performed well. The lead actors have already performed in Karthik Subbaraj films in minor roles. Remya just appears on the screen and vanishes. However, she did her job neatly.


Karthik Subbaraj comes with a different script and he has executed it finely. Karthik didn’t derail from the script and his narration is very realistic. The cast selection is excellent. Although the lead stars are new to us, they will get registered in our mind, once we leave the theaters. The technical side of the film is strong and the production department gets a huge appreciation.

What’s There?

  • The performance of the stars is fantastic; everyone impresses us
  • The biggest plus in Mercury is its cinematography; Tirru has just smoothly played with his third eye in and out
  • The second half of the film goes thrillingly
  • Chasing scenes are superbly designed and shot
  • Direction by Karthik is appreciable

What’s Not There?

  • The film comes with a less runtime
  • All the vital crime scenes end in the first half
  • Although the sound designing is okayish, it could’ve been little better


Karthik’s narration, the stars’ performance and the camera work will definitely impress the audiences. The second half is better than the intro scenes and the film guarantees a horror thriller experience.
