Easily makes to my top 5 thrillers list
18 January 2017 | by chai-sriuSee all my reviews

It has all the ingredients of a perfect murder mysteries. Right from the keeping the viewers engaged through multiple perspectives of how the murder could have happened to increasing the pace and twists till the climax, it is screen play at its best.

To choose new faces and to go without songs, i think the director deserves a special mention. This movie is an experience you will love. You will feel that you are a part of the investigation and that is where the director scores.

You know a movie is brilliant if the entire audience applauds when the credits starts rolling. Kudos to the entire team to have scripted such a price of work. 10/10
