Viewing Notes

Surprised I hadn’t yet seen this version given my interest in these ten little indian flicks. This one is a little dry at times but is one to watch for being one of the earliest adaptations of this story. Seems to brush over the story beats so casually without really building the mystery or suspense. Lacks intensity seen in more recent spins on this premise.
