Critic reviews and ratings

  • ...is a multi-layered and concept-oriented film that has its heart at the right place. With a screenplay that offers many thrills...

  • ...is a nifty piece of work that recognises the durability of meaningful entertainment. Its feminist breakthroughs may not always seem practical, but its 'fight back' gusto had my vote.

  • ...is inventive, it is intelligent, it does not take the viewer lightly and above all else, it is terrifying.

    Critic rating (?)

  • It is engaging and atmospheric but largely convoluted and unprovocative.

  • Taapsee Pannu, as she has been in her recent outings, is never less than convincing. While she may be the primary reason why you must go out a watch this film, it certainly isn't devoid of other intrinsic merits in terms of substance and execution.

  • ...a reasonably well-made horror-thriller.

  • Saravanan and co-writer Kaavya Ramkumar deliver a taut and highly watchable thriller that, despite falling short of its ambitions, has a clever take on the way in which violence against women gets imprinted on bodies and souls.

  • ...is one of those films that linger with you long after the end credits and with Taapsee Pannu's amazing and convincing performance, the film secures itself as one of the best movies of the year.

  • ...reaches its triple-header final act swiftly, then devolves into a witless muddle, with filmmakers ramping up sudden thrills but not seeding in the problem-solving elements the film needed.

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • Unfortunately, the premise is so lame and the killer is not scary at all, so the film falls flat on its face.

  • If the first half could’ve been knocked off and this was dedicatedly a film about home invasion, it would’ve surely been a more focussed, if not a more thrilling watch. But then, that would have been an entirely different film.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...packs in too much in a single film and hence the desired impact is not made.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is a lot of sound and fury signifying nothing.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...has a few genuinely scary scenes, but it is too schematic in structure and theme to work as a reflective thriller.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • Clearly, Pannu has worked hard, and there are a couple of genuinely scary moments, but the rest of it is too stretched: even the 102 minute run time feels too long.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is a cacophony of gore and screams that tries to shop at every tool available in the thriller/slasher/supernatural/horror genre that is completely prosthetic in its virtuosity to be politically relevant and correct.
