Brilliant
4 July 2016 | by rajmannar-08230See all my reviews

Very rarely does a movie hook you from the first scene and this is one such gem. And it makes even more fun that i watched this by fluke looking at the interesting title, even though it had unknown cast and a so-called low-budget. But as we have seen often, the finest movies have come from little known small budget movies.

Also rare is the genre of true suspense without distraction of garish masala and Kshanam fits this bill of a real suspense thriller. No meaningless songs or comedy track etc to play to the gallery. Again, another rare for a telugu movie.

Guy living in US gets called by his ex-Girlfriend for urgent help. Landing in India, he finds himself in middle of inexplicable happenings while trying to help solve her problem. Saying another more will spoil the fun of watching. So, check it out.

The Script and screenplay are the super strengths of the movie. Hardly any dull moment, clever use of flashbacks and revealing just enough at the right time, keeping one step ahead of the viewer in the guessing game of what is really going on. And acting from the new faces is excellent, matching the script. Also, the background score is wisely subdued.

Overall, a must watch movie. Enjoy!
