#Kanam #Diya : A Psychological Horror Movie with a message against Female Foeticide. Sai Pallavi shows she call pull off serious & matured roles as well. Mediocre at best but should be a good watch on TV when the DVD is out.

#Kanam is a flawless thriller with fantastic visuals & haunting background score. Baby Veronica is the star of he film. Both Sai Pallavi & Naga Shourya delivered good performances. #KanamFromApril27

#Kanam View Point: Though the concept is a valid one to project, its presentation completely deviates from it. In the name of thriller, you witness soft corners. Background score scores big...

#SaiPallavi proved beyond doubt that she can be eccentric and mild as well in her films. But can she be matured and portray terror on screen? Here to find out... #Kanam Premiere. Few movies help us to learn how technical brilliance cannot make up for a hollow script. #Kanam can be a good predict the next scene game. @SamCSmusic Background score and @Sai_Pallavi92's performance makes it up for a decent "TV movie".

AVAD‏ @avadsays
