REVIEWS:

I have enjoyed the film;it's quite impressive for its unique images.

Allabhya Ghosh

A strange and very personal work. The merit resides, precisely, in that strangeness that defines its own style. I had never seen anything like this before.

Joel D. Hitos

Not a big fan of the visuals and animation there, i was confused by them at first, the dialogue itself is good but very basic The expressions on the characters face are great and well rendered even if sometimes they are scary I found also a lack of background plans camera to really well put the action in place and understand well.
