The Road movie review


Trisha is thrilled to know that she is pregnant with her second child.

However, she is also slightly disappointed that the pregnancy will not allow her to undertake a road trip that she promised her young school-going son, for his birthday.

Unwilling to disappoint her son, she lets her husband Santhosh Prathap take her son on the trip.

Both father and son set off on the trip, intending to return in a couple of days.

However, fate delivers a cruel blow. A car heading on the opposite side of the highway loses control and swerves around to cut the median and crash into Santhosh’s car, killing them both.

Trisha is shattered by the news of their deaths. She rushes to the spot and suffers a shock, resulting in an abortion.

Eventually, when Trisha goes to the spot of the accident to pay homage to her son and husband, she becomes aware that the crash which killed her husband and son could not be merely dismissed as an accident and that it may well have been orchestrated.

What happens next forms the crux of the story.


Director Arun Vaseegaran has delivered a intense and gripping story that keeps you on the edge of your seats.

The story’s intensity goes up one more notch once Trisha begins investigating the accident.

Trisha does a decent job in the film and has got into the skin of her character.

Her character goes through various emotions and she has expressed it in a convincing manner.

Shabeer Kallarakkal steals the limelight in the film with yet another powerful performance.

Sam CS’s background score is perfect for the theme of the movie and KG Venkatesh’s visuals are striking.

Rest of the techincal aspects are sound.

Rating: 3.3/5
