It gets increasingly difficult with every passing year to get the tropes of a supernatural horror flick right. Debutante director Jofin T Chacko, must for sure have known what he was getting himself into, and his film ‘The Priest’ strains to achieve what many of his predecessors had set out to. But Jofin’s ambitious film never really springs to life, and there are quite a few reasons why it doesn’t.
‘Love’ attempts a horrific vivisection of a dysfunctional marriage and deftly works on the seeds of depressive confusion that it sows. Confronting their primal fears, the couple in ‘Love’ has a go at each other desperately, almost hysterically, letting us take a sneak peek at the monsters that lurk within them, that would stop at nothing until they have struck down their adversary dead. Another triumph from Khalid Rahman, this one!
