The suspense thriller revolves around a rock star who losses his parents in child hood and suffers from a sort of hallucination of killing the murderers of his parents and also feels that the same people are haunting him too. The complicated screen play ( which is apt for the story of a guy who hallucinates about things which are shown and also the same things happen in reality with some little changes) is not for dumbs as it confuses with multiple scenes repeating again and again with difference.


IMDB rating : 8.5 /100
