Twists in the plot




Lie is just a routine thriller but the way Hanu Raghavapudi handled the writing department and the way he set the premise, the way he introduced characters, the way he reveal the plot twists, the way he approached the scenes, the way he summed up or the way the justified the title stands out. Hanu Raghavapudi is a talent to watch out for among youth. His writing is the backbone of this lie which is supported by visioned execution and superb technicians and uncompromising producers. This may be the best spy thriller for this year and it is a superb ride for those who watch spy thrillers and it will be a confusing ride for normal audience in B & C centres. This movie runs on the villain and his character is written so well and there are enough twists to keep audience hooked to screen and Lie is a good movie which lack commercial elements which we see in regular commercial movies.
