Dream Away To Justice And Glory

K. V. Guhan attempts to come up with an engaging thriller and succeeds partly in his endeavour. This is a film that is easy on the eyes but not beyond that.(more)

Just don't try to dig too deep or you might miss out on a fine thriller.

Irrespective of the cracks in the story and missed logics, go watch this one for the edgy narrative. But be warned; do not try to dig too deep into it, for you might just miss out on a fine thriller that tries to deliver more than the usual heroics. Especially go watch this one for Nivetha Thomas and Kalyan Ram, you will not regret it. (more)

The curious nightmares

We see Nivetha Thomas as a photograph and through the fragmented dreams way before we get to her story. When that unfolds, it does shake you up. But when the hero keeps returning to room 118 and keeps harping on cues from which it's easy to guess the end, there are no surprises. He takes the onus on himself and doesn't make his trusted friend, the joint commissioner of police, partake in the investigation. He seeks police help only to trace mobile phones or cars!(more)



Kalyan Ram-starrer is very pretentious

KV Guhan's film is rife with unoriginal ideas that it becomes very difficult for the audience to forgive and just focus on the story.(more)

Enjoyable Thriller

118 is a simple and neat thriller which has been made with no unnecessary deviations. It has decent moments in both the halves and the suspense is carried out neatly. But the flashback in the second half slows down things a bit and is predictable. Barring this, the film has a classy feel and will surely attract the A center and multiplex audience. Box office wise, we need to see how the film works but Kalyan Ram has ensured that his attempt at doing a different film has surely worked with 118. Go watch it.(more)

A decent thriller, engaging in parts

118 is a decent thriller that is engaging in parts. The generally fast-paced investigative thriller that talks about lucid dreaming may appeal if you keep expectations undercheck. (more)
