REVIEWS | BEST TAMIL THRILLER MOVIES 2019

This tantalizing story of a caring and loving woman inhabited by a ghost is a great thriller to watch. While the story has many loopholes in terms of scripting. The actors make the movie watch-worthy. The character of Jyothi is very pure and divine. She has a beautiful heart. Jagan falls in love with her heart and her soul. He becomes a part of her. Jagan himself is a brilliant character who is clean and has a lot of dignity. He is eventually shown as failing. 

While not all aspects of the characterization are linked to the story. The story is good in terms of the premise that it takes in but fails to imagine the wider picture. Actor Siddharth has been a part of almost 3 ghost films and has delivered a very nice performance. 

The film turns out to be a revenge drama combined with a horror thriller. The film is good for a one-time watch.
