Nine is a movie that is taking us to a different world. A world that is not so familiar for the Malayalam film industry. It is a science fiction. Which has certain horror elements. In another angle, it is a chariot of emotions. To take all these things under one shield sounds difficult. But that has happened here, with ease.
Nine has it’s score in each areas as specified. Technical side of the movie is well displayed showcasing the scientific elements. Concerns for his kid, Adam has narrated the emotional side of Albert.
