Mercury: A spine-chilling thriller
Silence is the greatest weapon and this film proves the quote right. Directed by Karthick Subbaraj, this movie strikes the right chord and yet again the director proves his mantle in film making. To know more about this flick, read our review below:
1. Prabhu Deva’s performance is top class.
2. Interesting spine-chilling scenes.

4. Music elevates the scenes.
1. First half is slow.
2. As a silent movie, all that is conveyed by the director might not be decoded by the audience.
3. 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 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 youngster. The emotions have been well delivered and look real.
This film is technically good. Cinematography is excellent and sets the mood right, all credits go to the national-award-winning cinematographer Tirru.
The lighting has been set well and goes on 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.
