- As a silent movie, all that is conveyed by the director might not be decoded by the audience.
- Few scenes look stereotyped.
The entire cast of this film has done a good job. Prabhu Deva's villainy act proves his mantle as an actor and he deserves a special applause. The characters have been well written. Deepak Paramesh, Indhuja, Sananth, Shashank Purushotham and Anish Padmanabhan have given a neat performance as a hearing-and-speech impaired youngsters. The emotions have been well delivered and looks real.The Team
This film is technically good. Cinematography is excellent and sets the mood right, all credits goes to the national-award winning cinematographer Tirru.
The lighting has been set well and goes in par with the genre.
BGM elevates the scenes and keeps us glued to our seats. The film could have been executed even better, as even though the film has a social message to deliver it was very much treated like a horror flick.
Bottom line - Go for it! You will not be disappointed.
Certified Fresh - YES!
Stars - 3/5
