Buffoon Reviews

Critics appreciated the film’s music and mentioned that Santhosh Narayanan’s tunes add immense value to the film, however, the story, despite having the heart needed, lacked potential due to its lackadaisical execution and inconsistent writing. Though it is watchable, audience will not be hooked to the screen as it takes the predictable route both with the crime and the thriller elements packed in the film.

IMDb Rating: 9/10
