connect review

One more horror film – how different can this be. ‘Connect’ directed by Ashwin Saravanan is about scare and thrills but does not take the refuge of humour or love story – and still manages to be engagingly scary. And, the story happens during lockdown.

Connect review

A family is living in a beachside house – father, mother and daughter (Vinay, Mayanthara and Haniya Nafisa). They are still arguing about whether the daughter should take up music in London as she wishes or complete education when National Lockdown happens. And, the mother and daughter are stuck at home during lockdown, turn covid positive and quarantine themselves. Eventually they find that the daughter is possessed. And that gives way to some goose bumps and scary scenes elevated by some amazing cinematography and background score with Anupam Kher for a cameo thrown in. Actor Sathyaraj also has an important part to play as grandfather to Nafisa who makes an impressive debut with Connect.
