Aval, with its intention to scare the audience, does it with the perfect locations and technical masterwork, at times making you feel haunted. Framed in two hours with extraordinary graphical works, locations and cast, the script stands tall as they put in what is really needed for the film. The makers make sure to match Hollywood standards unlike many other films that claim to be that way, technically top notch.
Siddharth playing the main lead as a leading neuro-surgeon has portrayed his looks and mannerisms to perfection, to fit the role, while Andrea as his wife takes to the extra limits with glamour and romance. Atul Kulkarni and his family come in as neighbours to Siddharth, and that’s where the trouble begins as they start to witness some kind of paranormal activity round the place. What’s left is for you to see, the as the team successfully pulls off a high standard horror thriller.
Aval certainly stands out in making and the exhibition of the script, as it was convincing throughout with the flashback scenes that create the buzz from the start. The movie is very able in its technical aspects such as the locations, VFX, music and BGM by Girish, cinematography by Shreyaas Krishna were
all packed above par to the script. The twists and turns in aval will not let you jump into conclusion, as everything is carried up till the climax breaking some good suspense.
Aval is not a usual horror film, having its own style of narration and technical wizardry, being on par with a Hollywood flick. Go for it to experience a quality horror thriller that will keep you engaged, on the edge of the seat.
