An exasperating watch

A hearing and speaking impaired girl is stranded in a huge palace like house and is on the run within the premises to safeguard herself from a mysterious killer.

Nayanthara cannot survive this thriller, that has nothing going for it

The film has turned out to be a crashing bore and disappointing. It has turned out to be Nayan's weakest film in recent times, and should have remained in the cans. The writing and screenplay is a total mess as in more than half the film, there is no dialogue as the central character is deaf and mu...(more)
