Lens is one hell of a movie. One of the reasons why cinema is such a powerful medium. It moves even the cold blooded human beings. It is so deep that you wish the film is not just 1 hour and 48 minutes. We all enjoy victimizing people but what if we become the victims?
The actor who played 'Yohan' is one of the best actors I have seen recently. His precise dialogue deliveries, his character mannerisms and the expressions, phew. What a raw talent! The important of silence in a film cannot be shown better than this. Jayaprakash Radhakrishnan, take a bow sir. You are unbelievably brilliant with the frames and to the point dialogues.
Thank you LJ Films for taking up this film. You deserve equal credits.
The theater hardly had 30-35 people in but nobody forgot to stand up in ovation at the end. This film is JUST NOT TO BE MISSED at any cost. Lens could be a history. Watch paying at the theater, not to the ISP.
'Lens' A must watch. Best movie of the year. Jayaprakash Radhakrishnan you made a mark in the film industry. Cheers to 'team Lens'
Awesome movie. Must watch for the online friends. The Movie is loosely based the suicide of Amanda Todd which shook the internet a couple of years ago.And mainly says about the cyberbullying which all of us should know.

The story and premises in Lens oozes some freshness to it. A thriller with suspense element, the film breaks the conventional norm and follow a different pattern for narrating the story. A haunting feel is there throughout and the film makes up for a compelling watch, thanks to its lively screenplay and beautiful execution staying sincere to the story and its presentation. The film has taken utmost care on the technical front with excellent camera work. The incidents unfold in a single room of an apartment and the cameraman has done his part making the visuals look totally apt. Nice background score and sound effects also is another highlight. Whoever has done the sound design also deserves a pat on his back. I am not familiar with the actors who all are new faces.
