Karthik Subbaraj who shot to fame with movies like Pizza, Jigarthanda and Iraivi has taken a huge challenge to come up with a silent thriller. Remember two decades ago came Pushpak that featured Kamal Haasan. No comes another silent entertainer.

It stars Prabhudeva, Anish and Deepak in the lead roles. In a nutshell, the movie is about a victim of mercury poisoning takes revenge before showing his soft side.

The movie revolves around five students of deaf and dumb school is having a gala time at a guest house n a hill station. A group of friends involved in a hit and run incident are killed one after another, either by a ghost or some killer. But there is s sub plot.

A silent movie loaded with music and the BGM are apt and they give flesh and blood to it.Five friends go for a midnight drive in a car and accidentally kill a man (Prabhu Deva) in the dark. They try to dispose the corpse but it reappears alive in a chemical factory named the Corporate Earth, where the five friends find themselves trapped.

The movie proceeds on a top gear and ends with twists and turns. Karthik Subbaraj's writing is the key.

Prabhudeva steals the show with a wonderful performance. He is right there delivering his best. His mannerisms and dialogue delivery are apt for the story. He is the stalk and cheese of the film. His performance conveys the essence of the film.

The movie has Anish and Deepak giving their best and Karthik subbaraj yet again proves that he is good at getting the best from his artistes.

The horror thriller gets more life thanks to Santosh Narayanan's excellent music. It is guiding force of the movie. All things fall in place thanks to his superb work.

Mercury is a interesting and intriguing horror thriller that is worth a watch.
