The entire crew deserves appreciation for this attempt. They deserve credit for the work they did in the film. The first half of the movie is a little slow but necessary.

It is fast-paced and so engaging. The second half will keep you on the edge of your seat. The second half follows with lots of twists, turns, unpredictable climax scenes, and many more. The ending will surely keep you hooked up.
The casting of the movie was just incredible. Every actor played their role perfectly. Tovino (Chacko), Indrajith (Police Officer), Shobhita (Kurup’s Wife) were just too good with their roles. Dulquer as Kurup was perfect. He carried the role with his magical craft. There couldn’t be any better casting for the film. The character growth of Kurup from joining the army to being a criminal was shown brilliantly. Dulquer had to match the character growth and he passed with flying colors.
The director did his work and was too good. The dialogues were good too. The cinematography was outstanding, the background music complimented the entire movie. The scriptwriting was very well handle. The screenplay was just mind-blowing. The songs were very well placed and were quite good.
