The jumps and bumps that are expected in a film that falls into this genre are far from sight in ‘Pretham 2’. A jaded horror thriller with none of the fiery thrills, Ranjith Shankar’s ‘Pretham 2’ talks of a troubled spirit that barely leaves you in good spirits.
‘Crossroad’ is a loosely screwed in ensemble, pieces of which keep falling off every time it tries to punch in a point. It’s unlikely to be remembered as a benchmark in portmanteau films, and leads you into the hum-ho zone in no time. Strike off those last three shorts, and you might literally find yourself stranded on the crossroads with this one.
