Movie Verdict

Even though it takes a while to get to the main story, the premise and tone hook you right away and make you want to know how it ends. The story gets more interesting when a bad power comes into play and her family tries to save her after she is hit in different parts of the city because of a lockdown. The first part of the movie was mostly made up of sad scenes instead of scary ones, which gave it an unusual look for a horror movie.

Even though there isn’t a break, the break comes with a great twist, and then the movie gets even better as things keep happening and keep you on the edge of your seat. There are some problems with the story, but the main idea is good, and there are twists that keep you on the edge of your seat. If you can sit through the 90 minutes of narration, you will have a great time.

As for the acting, female diva Nayanthara does a great job as a single mother. Her character was well-written and had a lot of complicated parts, which she handled with ease. Sathyaraj, who had less screen time than Anupam Kher but played a spiritual pastor, also gave it his all. The rest of the cast members also did their best.

Connect possesses superior technologies. Manikantan Krishnamachary takes you to the world of Connect and makes you feel like you belong there with his beautiful pictures and use of colour. While the rest of the technical team did their best, Prithvi Chandrasekhar did a great job writing the background music.

Connect is also a great story. This time, he focused on how people felt during lockdown instead of scary things, but he still used his signature plot twists. Connects doesn’t have as many scary moments as Mayuri or Game Over, but the director is still able to make people feel something. Even though his books have scary parts, Ashwin Saravanan is always surprised by how unique they are. He did this by writing very well.

Overall, Connect is a movie that everyone can enjoy and that must be seen to have a unique experience.
