A 'Not Bad' Thriller That Is Content To Do The Bare Minimum
What makes Cold Case work (to a certain extent) is that it remains rather low key right from the beginning. Unlike many thrillers it doesn't hype things too much in the initial half and then disappoint in the climax with a 'meh' reveal. A couple of jump scares are nicely done and might have worked better in theatres. The cast does a neat job and everyone keeps it subtle. While 'Yaavarum Nalam/13B' might come to mind, 'Cold Case' is a lot more closer to 'Eeram' which too was a film about a paranormal force aiding in an investigation. (more)
