Athiran, in spite of being helmed by a newcomer Vivek, is no novice movie. With power-packed actors like Fahadh Faasil and south sensation Sai Pallavi on board, the film has been packaged as a perfect horror thriller. Though there are a few predictable and cliched scenes it can easily be over-looked. Backed by a stellar star cast, the makers have mixed all the ingredients in the right proportions. The lead lady with her eerie looks has aroused spooky feelings. The film can easily pass off as the best from recently released movies of similar genre. Though not everyone's cup of tea, at the end of 63 days, the film's has collected 9.5 crores at Kerala BO.
