Using the game of Antakshari the film has woven a neat thriller that is intense and intriguing. Started watching expecting a run of the mill plot twist but received a well satisfying closure. Heard it was supposed to be a web series so some of the sub plots remain unanswered. Additionally more attention could have been provided while casting as some of the cast feels out of place. There is one particular storyline that really needs to be completed in the future as certain surprising aspects were revealed without any closure.
The protagonist Das played by Saiju Kurup, is well created and his entire character is described in one dialogue with a tribute to something historically iconic. Be advised as one scene was extreme and had vicious visuals. Personally it was horrifying but the film required it. Thus definitely the film serves as a must watch for viewers who have an affinity for investigative and crime thrillers. Overall the makers deserve appreciation for converting a simple premise into a bone chilling experience
Verdict– 6/7 stars.
Initially was supposed to be a web series. Later the makers decided to make it into a film.
