I waver between finding this plot really interesting, and then the next second I’m shouting out “what the fudge?”, in confusion. Even a week after watching, I can’t decide if I like the story or if I’m still confused. I won’t give details into why, since that would take away from the watching experience, but be aware there is a level of confusion to everything.


I think the cinematography was the highlight of the film. This director really knows how to set the mood, whether it is absolute terror, or dismal depression. He brings us along through the leading lady’s life step by step and makes us feel it.


This movie is really only about Sapna Desai as she recovers from a horrible event which leads to several more horrible events. As the only main character, I found her very believable in her actions and she really sucks you into her depression and horror.


I will admit that I am probably not the intended target for this kind of movie. I was not expecting the level of violence that was present and that is probably on me. I would also say the plot made us take some mental leaps to follow the story arc at times. I personally like a more seamless story arc. I will give it a 6.5/10.
