Mercury Review

Mercury is a silent thriller movie which means speechless but talks goes with signs language. Five young stars Sananth Reddy, Deepak Paramesh, Shashank Purushotham, Anish Padmanabhan and Indhuja are beautifully expressive. They have trained very well to speak with signs, no where in the film we can't find lip moments also.Prabhudeva highlighted as a villain with the Weird look, facial expressions which gathered more attention.

Director Karthik Subbaraj wisely narrated plot with no dialogue and he is successful in building up the suspense throughout the movie which made the audience to sit back in seats. Of course, it is a silent thriller but never feels bore it is filled with twists and thrills. Santhosh Narayan background score added life to the movie, his music only speaks aloud in the movie. Tirru's Cinematography is fantastic most of the scenes are in dark to build horror they added a toxic green where there is a danger. Mercury is an experimental movie its a great attempt of Karthik Subbaraj.
