Though the film managed to keep up the enthusiasm at parts, trying to mix different genres into one film killed the essence of the film, thus making it not belong to anything in particular.
There is a friendship angle to the story, after which it turns out to be a love saga and it eventually converts to an action film. In the latter part of the film, you will see a psychological thriller only to return back to friendship drama. Took many ingredients too spoils the dish.
On the whole, Malupu is a decent suspense thriller with enough twists and turns. If you manage to sit through the below par first half and forget the unconvincing climax, you can easily give this film a shot for some interesting and thrilling moments.
A mystery film that has gripping screenplay in the second half. A one-time watch.
