A Clueless Sci-Fi Juggling Between Genres

The ambitiously done, Jenuse Mohammed directorial Nine can be appreciated as an attempt but fails big time to deliver even a barely watchable experience.(more)

Nine is technically a well-made textbook thriller, nothing like anything that has ever been attempted in Malayalam before

Nine is technically a well-made textbook thriller, nothing like anything that has ever been attempted in Malayalam before. Except for the huge scientific backdrop and an air of supernatural built around it, the story is one that we've watched Prithviraj perform time and again. But nevertheless, watc...(more)

A spooky experimental mystery that raises questions about modern lifestyle. Must Watch!

One wishes that the director had used more silence for us to be absorbed into the atmosphere of the film and Adam had a lot of scenes in the initial portions (the character of Adam feels a bit underwritten). But minor problems aside, what makes 9 work very well is the fact that the layers of sci-fi ...(more)

A Sci-fi Film That Comes Into Its Own After It Turns Into A Psychological Thriller

Nine succeeds, to an extent, in covering up the writing flaws with superb production value and technology. The VFX, except for that comical fox, is convincing and creative-especially the star-lit dark sky, the reddish comet, and the black, cloudy ghostly invasion. So was the BGM that effectively ga...(more)

Psycho thriller treading unfamiliar terrains

The only problem with Nine is its hurried climax, a grand revelation that lacks its indispensable crescendo. It required more build up and reel time before it slowly evolved to the point through more intriguing clues and calculations. The film features a highly skippable flashback song sequence, but...(more)

Arun Sundar

Should have taken care to avoid loopholes in the second half. Writing could have been much better. Visuals are good. Prithviraj as usual good acting. Climax reveal is thrilling and also scary. If the writing was better, then this film could have ended up as a must watch one. SAD. BGM was just ok..to... (more)
