A worthwhile outing that engages emotionally!!!

Despite being a tad predictable , Diya is a worthy outing as the emtotions work.(more)

Sai Pallavi, Sam CS shine in this horror film

The story is predictable. There isn't much surprise beyond the first few minutes until the very end. But the tone and the mood set by the director and his team is very effective. The frames are drained out of warmth, even the so-called happy ones. The film�s frames are bathed in sombre blues and red...(more)

Sam CS�s music has added much value to the film, the background score especially is haunting, which is exactly the feeling the film was aiming for but can never achieve.(more)

A predictable revenge thriller

This Sai Pallavi, Naga Shaurya-starrer is let down by an indistinct script

The only thing I kept thinking about was what were they trying to do and how much of it was lost in an attempt to keep the run time to under two hours. A big thumbs down to Diya. There are a million other horror and thrillers that leave you wanting for more. Diya isn't one of them.(more)

Diya is structured as a revenge thriller, the main difference being that it is the ghost of a child - an unborn one, at that - which is on a killing spree.

Diya isn't compelling enough. Vijay works with tropes that are too familiar - lonely apartment block, freak accidents, bumbling cops (the comic scenes with RJ Balaji are quite jarring compared to the sombre tone of the film), and underwritten characters who we never come to care about. These turn th...(more)
