"This movie has gripped me deeply. Several people have brought Macbeth to films, to theatre. But this movie offers a take on Macbeth by fully localising it. Great performances. What really touched me was how masterfully the predicament in each of the characters minds is shown. Amazing!"
- Jayanth KaykiNi, Writer
