And here is the quick review – Mercury movie it is a clever thriller by Karthik Subbaraj plot has a few gaps and he also uses the regular narrative techniques of the horror genre to create the moments of shock. However, the overall impact of Mercury on a viewer is very effective, encouraging us to brush aside the shortcomings.
Mercury eventually melts down to the story of human sufferings caused due to corporate greed. And we do leave the theatre with a heavy heart, if not totally frightened by Prabhudheva’s thirst for vengeance. Everyone in this story is a victim.
