Agyaat - External Reviews

wogma rating: Add to 'must watch' list (?) - Only for thriller buffs who don't mind absense of substantial story
quick review:

Weird camera angles used wisely, wish background score was used miserly. Nevertheless, the pace and visuals used are well placed to thrill and create curiosity. Alas, the climax is pretty predictable and that takes away a lot from the enjoyment of the film.
