"#GameOver is a tight genre-hopping thriller that keeps you guessing about the genre it can be slotted into. (I swear, I’m still trying.) The miracle is that it manages to pack all of this—and a lot more—into 100-odd minutes."

Effective storytelling using a high concept backdrop.
After a long time, really want to know what happens next. Cutting point of the interval was almost perfect. @ynotxworld continues to inspire.

#GameOver Director has taken entire 1st half (60 mins) to establish the plot. Hence, it was not engaging. But, he has rocked in the 2nd half (40 mins) with each and every scene. People who likes experimental / new attempts will love this movie. Not for Commercial movie lovers

Stop everything you're doing today and go watch #GameOver like NOW/TODAY. What an experience. Take a bow @Ashwin_saravana. And @taapsee should write a book about how she picks her films. Has to be her best work till date. And surely DOP Vasanth is the MVP of this Game. Just Wow.

Scripting at its best, needs plenty of guts to pull an experimental movie like this. Will be a paradise for Movie Lovers . @RonYohann s BGM still haunting the heart !!

The first half moves at a slow pace but it keeps us going as every scene had something to offer us. The game changes to an all-new different level in the second half, with creativity, scares, thrills, mass moments, and claps.

FINALLY! finally a film that does not coddle the audience or treat them as idiots. I've been a long time thriller fan and yet #GameOver is truly unique! I watched the movie hunched forward with a frown on my forehead and eyes dotted to the screen @taapsee u rock! Keep 'em coming!

Holy shit! #GameOver is a heart-thumping, thrilling ride – a mindbending mix of several genre films. Even the best high-concept thrillers (‘Don’t Breathe’, ‘Hush’), though, lack an emotional connect, which the film has in abundance!

#GameOver is an intelligent home invasion thriller, where the central characters worst fears comes true. Major plus is @taapsee. She is outstanding as the traumatised Video game programmer with many layers to her character. New high end concept . Can’t reveal more ….,

Taapsee Pannu is honestly killing it with her movies lately, she’s starting to become one of my favorites tbh. Have you watched it yet?
