Film starts with a gruesome murder of a young lady who has been stalked by a serial killer. These murder continue targeting young women who are alone in the house, and the police are clueless and are left baffled . We then follow Swapna ( Taapsee ) a game developer who works from home. She has a unique phobia called nyctophobia – fear of darkness which she suffers after an incident in her past. She even has her house guarded with surveillance cameras to protect her, while her only companion inside the house is her maid kalaamma ( Vinodhini).Only in the intermission we come to know that the serial killer has targeted Swapna for his next victim who is left desperate within her house. What happens next is the rest of the story.
For director Ashwin this his is second film after a successful debut with Maya. Game over too doesn’t disappoint the audience. The story telling is clean and has enough bread crumbs that the audience can reach out and follow the narration without any confusion. Taapsee single handedly carries the whole film on her shoulders and does a brilliant job. Well supported by the Vasanth the cinematographer who creates the world around the lead role, and the brilliant background score by Ron Ethan Yohan elevates this thriller to its success. The only drawback in the film for me is the director takes his own time on characterising the main lead , for which he could have used that time to explain more on the twist in the film. Other than that film is a must watch and I give the film 7/10.
