#Virus First Half Update: Engaging so far. First half is all about how the epidemic wrecked havoc in Kerala. The making will keep you hooked. Pace of the movie is slow which the story demands. #Virus Second half is fine though not terrific. The film boasts of some superb perfomances along with excellent making 0 commercial elements 0 gimmicks. Will connect with audience who love such realistic approaches Positives Terrific making @talkaashiq Music by Sushin Rajeev Ravi's DOP Perfomances of all lead actors especially Sreenath Bhasi #Virus #VirusMovie On the flip side The pace of the movie in the second half might not cater to all Lack of goosebump scenes that you expect from a survival thriller
#VIRUS (Malayalam) : Honest. Effective. Philosophical. Director Aashiq Abu converted the strong vision of the writers from paper to big screens with high technical standards & quality performances. Lived up to the hype! #VIRUS has no such 'cinematic' moments. With every craft, technicians contributed their best to hold the content which moves in the right pace. All put together, brilliantly executed by the captain of the ship @talkaashiq.
