South Indian movie review – Lens and C/O Kadhal

Lens - movie

I saw a brilliant movie called Lens on Netflix. It is a dark mystery drama, a genre I don’t really like but once I started watching I could not stop. What happens when a man who is hooked on chatting with women on the net is trapped into a situation to watch a man threaten to commit suicide. What is the reason unfolds as the movie runs.
