The question lingers, will the police be able to solve the crimes in the city and get to the culprit.

Nishabdham review: what works?

The film features a star-studded cast starring Anushka Shetty and Madhavan. The film takes place at a decent pace.

What’s not working?

The storyline is not catchy and has many holes in the plot with a lot of unnecessary subplots. The movie’s title means ‘silence’ and the main character in the movie has a speech and hearing impairment, but neither the plot nor the script really makes it a crucial feature of the movie. The physical disability is not something the character uses as a USP, nor is it a serious drawback to her in the storyline. The film has a star-studded cast, but their acting doesn’t impress or become a milestone in their career.

Final thoughts

While the movie’s trailer looked promising and caused a storm among the actors’ fans, the movie doesn’t impress, even though there are low expectations for the movie. Neither the story nor the acting is exceptional enough to recommend the film as a must-watch. Nishabdham movie IMDb: 3.8 / 10 by more than 2 thousand users.

Rating: 2/5
