#Nishabdham / #Silence (Tamil|2020) - AMAZON PRIME. Too artificial in terms of perf & presentation. Not sure y maddy opted for this cameo. Foreign actors r pathetic. Bad writing. Silly investigation & romance scenes. Zero emotional connect. Nothing interesting-Big Yawn. WORST!
#Nishabdham Review — At no point, the audience will feel bad for the victim which means no emotional connection to the story. The foreign cast actually is pathetic. It would have been a bloodbath at the box office if the movie released in theaters.
