  • The movie is a mess, yet once the thriller plot kicks in, you do start to absorb it as a "silent" film, tuning into the visual atmosphere of stalker fear and rusty chemical entropy.

  • Mercury may be remembered as the first silent thriller in Indian cinema, but it's far from the heart-stopper we're looking for.

  • Mercury eventually melts down to the story of human sufferings caused due to corporate greed. And we do leave the theatre with a heavy heart, if not totally frightened by Prabhudheva's thirst for vengeance.

  • I loved that the protagonists don't get much sympathy because they are the "good guys..."

  • Mercury is the kind of film where the sum isn't quite greater than the parts. It gains many brownie points over the course of its 1 hour 48 mins runtime but falls short of being a great film.

  • A technical marvel, one of the best shot Tamil films in recent memory, with a surprisingly adept sound design that compensates for the lack of speech in creative ways
