Brilliant.
8 June 2019 | by AzanspySee all my reviews

Virus is not just one of the best movies of the year, it is one of the best movies ever made in Mollywood history. It is so well crafted doc-fiction. Aashiq Abu delivers the best movie of his career and is simply one of the best directors in India. The movie keeps us thrilled and always triggers suspense and goosebumps. There is no single standout performance as every single actor in this movie was perfect. Kudos to Rajeev Ravi. His cinematography was another level. Sushin Shyam's music was one of the backbones of the movie and he can be Malayalam's Hans Zimmer. Overall, Virus is a perfect movie that everyone should warch in theatres. Mollywood will be proud of Virus. P. S. Audiences may feel a bit lost in the time realtions during the movie but the climax makes all that connections.
