Naane Varuvean Reviews
The film opened to mixed response in theatres and with a short run-time as well as a clean screenplay, its exploration of a psychopath is intriguing. The story of the film revolves around an average suburban man whose life s upside down when his daughter Satya is possessed by the ghost of a little boy.
It had a decent opening but was overshadowed by the most awaited PS:1. However, despite clashing with the Vikram starrer, the film managed to collect over Rs. 30 crores, after four days of its release.
