Diya Review


Naga Shourya, Veronika Arora, Gandhari Nithin, RJ Balaji, Rekha and Nizhalgal Ravi form part of the cast. Sai Pallavi and Veronika's splendid performance is the highlight of the movie. It has an engaging plot and Vijay's narration makes it racy and revenge plot is worth a watch.

A supernatural- drama with revenge as crux. It raises serious questions about premarital pregnancy and an apparent abortion with a touch of paranormal activities.
Diya revolves around Thulasi (Sai Pallavi) and Krishna (Naga Shourya) in love with each other. She became pregnant and to pursue her studies she agrees for abortion. Things go well and two gets married.

But paranormal activities begin. But very soon, their family members who coerced her to choose abortion end up dead; even the doctor who performed the procedure dies. What happens and why death occur form the crux.


Diya Tamil Movie Review


The medium of communication between the mother and the daughter is melodramatic and music composer Sam CS adds right emotion with his work.

RJ Balaji as a police officer provides humour. Santhana Bharathi's character, which promises a lot in the beginning, is too short and fades away very soon.

Sai Pallavi and Veronika have given their best. Pallavi's emotional outburst and subtle expressions in several scenes are noteworthy. She has begun with a bang in Kollywood. Young Veronika is the right pick. She deserves a pat for a good performance.

Three cheers to cinematographer Nirav Shah who lets his lens do all talking. A regular in Vijay's films, they share a good rapport and it is evident in the screen.

Divya is strictly for those who love horror themes.


Verdict : Diya - Good attempt

Rating: 2.75/5
