Maya Review

The film has countable characters and each of them have come up with laudable performances. As expected, Nayantara delivers yet another powerful act.

When I say powerful, it doesn't mean shouting one's lungs out or showcasing fear to a great extent. Of course, Maya comes with such gimmicks, but what will impress horror lovers the most is Nayantara's restrained acting, for her character demands it.

Ron Ethan Yohaan's background score not only spooks you but also makes sure you are barely seated, right from the word go.

Overall View: Maya cannot be categorized with some of the other Tamil horror flicks that released in the recent past. This film's sole intention is to scare you and the debutant director Ashwin Saravanan has managed to do that pretty convincingly.

Maya takes a special spot in the victory stand for having employed Digital Interface (DI) for the core purpose of storytelling. In the course of deep thinking, mere techniques can become the narrator too! Maya stands as a substantial example for the same.

The director has indeed taken advantage of the potential that Nayanthara has as a performer. There is not one frame in which we see her stepping out of her character.

Verdict: Maya does what it is supposed to do! Keeps you intact through its runtime.
