quick review:

A creepy crawl under your skin that goes away because it tries to stay for too long.

(gulp) The teaser jolted me. Of course, in two seconds, the effect waned and it felt like a gimmick. And then came along the trailer. (gulp) (gulp) (gulp)

What spine-chilling 3 minutes! Though of course I was immediately distracted by OCD traits, hallucinations, grandiose delusions all together being termed as psychopath. Sure, a psychopath could suffer from one or all of the above. However, I cringe at the thought of someone looking at a person with the trait of wacking on alternate steps on a footpath and wondering if they are a psychopath or even worse call him/her – psycho.

Despite holding that big one against the trailer, I was completely taken in by the atmosphere, the dialogue, the implication of the dialogue and of course Nawazuddin Siddiqui. So much so that, a hope has risen that even the technical mental disorder will be explained well in the film. Yes, unlikely, but hey, hope is hope.

Again, another one that I won't be around for first day. Hopefully, I am a the fag end of a long, tiring Himalayan trek and will be back soon. Maybe I am currently disconnected from all things materialistic, and if I am not, I am sure I one of my top thoughts would be that June brought us 2 super thrillers.
