Screenplay & Direction
The script of the film is based on one of the well-acclaimed Spanish movie but the writer has made some smart innovations and interpretations by making valid changes. There are ample twists and turns and credit should go to Venkat Premji, who has packaged them in a befitting manner. He sets up the pace and tone of the film in such a way that the audiences are left guessing about the various possibilities. He has narrated the tale without leaving the audiences much confused. In a sense, he doesn't shy away from spoon-feeding the audiences. However, he could have focused more on the pace. At times, especially in the first half of the film, the movie drags a bit in explanations, which could have been cut shortened.

Naveen Chandra is simply superb in his role and he once again proves, why he is one of the finest actors around. The rest of the cast has also come up with a very reliable performance.
Other Technical Aspects
Cinematography is rock-solid and the visuals ably support the tone of the film. Especially, the lighting patterns adopted are pretty impressive. Editing is fine but it could have been more slick, especially in the initial half of the movie.
