Mansion 24 Review
This Indian horror series follows a familiar pattern, lacking the intense thrills and spine-tingling moments to truly captivate your full attention. Instead, it leans heavily on jump scares and well-worn horror tropes. It also marks filmmaker Ohmkar’s first foray into the world of OTT, where he continues experimenting within the horror genre.
Meanwhile, the series boasts a clever premise and effectively utilizes an episodic structure. Additionally, its standout element is, for sure, the Mansion 24’s cast. Each actor delivers a compelling performance that enriches the overall narrative. Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, famous for her versatility, skillfully embodies the role of Amrutha. She also deftly conveys the character’s unwavering determination and vulnerability.
The supporting cast also contributes depth and authenticity to the storyline. It comes with a notable strength being the series’ willingness to delve into the psychological aspects of its characters. However, some viewers might notice occasional inconsistencies in the pacing. Furthermore, the sound design and cinematography can sometimes come across as overly emphasized.
Although the plot isn’t particularly original, it is somewhat presented engagingly. But in the end, it lacks the impact. Mansion 24 is, all things considered, a horror movie that mostly focuses on conventional horror aspects. A few subplots are impressive, but most don’t make an impression. We give this television show a 2.5-star rating.
