Critics Review


An Experimental Thriller That Is Barely Captivating!

Solid performances and a technically sound flick that offers an unique experience for sure. But there�s no importance on how interestingly the story can travel forward, very low on the engagement factor makes it just an art film.(more)

Mammootty excels in this chilling folklorish fantasy

Mammootty keeps the viewers spellbound throughout, with the way he looks, his resounding laugh and the horrors he conveys. Siddharth plays down his character and you feel, at the start, that he could have taken it up a notch, but even with his even voice and demeanour, he is striking when the tempo of the story rises. He has done a great job with the overall look of his character. Arjun Ashokan is also good. Apart from doing a great job of causing delightfully scary chills, Bramayugam also has the nostalgic appeal of a grandmother�s tales.(more)

Mammootty strikes again, this time in the horror genre

The story of 'Bramayugam' is quite simple, and its only drawback is that it could have benefited from more layers. The film is a slow burner at times, leaving you feeling like the story isn't progressing much. However, the stellar performances by Mammootty, Arjun Ashokan, and Sidharth Bharathan elevate the film. Coupled with cinematography by Shehnad Jalal, editing by Shafique Mohammed Ali, and music by Christo Xavier, 'Bramayugam' offers an intriguing cinematic experience. �Bramayugam�, with an intriguing story, gifts you an immersive experience. And Mammootty strikes yet again! (more)

Dracula and Faust meet in a horror fan's dream.

To me, this film has all the markings of an instant classic. But, to be sure, let's wait another decade to see if it will still hold up then. However, there's no doubt about calling Rahul Sadasivan a master filmmaker. Our own Shyamalan? Our own Nolan? Our own Villeneuve? Or maybe all three?.(more)
