A body of a high-profile businesswoman goes missing from the morgue in the Forensic Lab. This leads to a cat-and-mouse game between the investigative office and the potential suspect, the husband of the murdered. AMR Ramesh, known to make films that are pieced together from real-life tales, returns to the big screen with this film. The team, so far, has maintained that extensive research has gone into this medical thriller, which has been inspired from several real-life stories.
A PR piece even had parallels to the Sunanda Pushkar case. Alas, this tale is not any extensive researched tale, but a remake of the critically acclaimed Spanish horror-thriller El Cuerop (The Body). That said, the film is engaging and makes for a good watch. The film is a tale that is narrated through one night, with references to many tales prior to that. This non-linear narrative holds the viewer gripped. The protagonist, an investigative officer, is following the case of a rich heiress, who was allegedly murdered and whose body is missing from the morgue. The suspect, her husband who's younger than her, has his own motives and lies that keep him on the run. Where did the body really go?
