Mangalavaaram Movie Review and Verdict:
Mangalavaaram is an adequate thriller with a few stunning moments. The core point in the film is unexpected, and the following twists make it worth watching; however, the slow pace until the pre-climax and a relatively underwhelming first half hold back it. One can watch the film for a different kind of experience.
