“If there’s a complaint with the film, it’s that this love is more an abstract conceit than something that worms its way into our hearts — we don’t quite feel the emotions we’re meant to feel. But this is also a function of the formal nature of the filmmaking, where everything is stylised, almost ritualised. It’s not just the performances that hover somewhere between realism and artifice, something more like performance art. Mysskin may be the only filmmaker around whose violence is rendered as some sort of poetry.” Baradwaj Rangan, The Hindu

Pisaasu is neither the typical horror film that gives you some cheap thrills nor is it a classic horror film that gives your spine a few chills, but it is a heart-warming, emotional take on ghosts that takes its time and packs a punch with its masterful writing that unravels to a wonderful finish.” Piping Hot
