Directed by Aashiq Abu and Written by Muhsin Parari ,The film Virus could be the best possible on screen depiction of the Nipah Virus outbreak in kozhikode in july'18 .
The film from beginning to end is told in an non linear type narration ,what made me notice the most was the casting of this film,the casting was so good that I must say that this film had one hell of a casting team.
Another thing which I must praise is the background score of the film ,Sushin Syam has done a brilliant job for it.
The next about the cinematography Rajeev Ravi has a done a brilliant job in capturing the shots perfectly one by one. The first half is a gripping one which tells us the cruel truths and horrors behind the Nipah virus and how was the reception about in among the health community.
The screenplay writers has done a brilliant job of netting a wonderful screenplay for the film.
Also about the editing and VFX both has given the audience a gripping and thriller effect for the film,even though the film goes in a mood of a medical thriller it does have the equitable qualities of a broader genre of thriller movies .Considering other medical thrillers which has screened in Malayalam cinema such as 'TRAFFIC', the film does have its own content to stand ahead of films released in this genre.
Of course the captain of the ship Aashiq Abu has done a brilliant job in making the film as it is .
Virus technically was a huge success considering the amateur nature of recent malayalam film with good scripts.
Special mention and shout out for Sreenath Basi, Tovino ,Parvathy ,Kunchacko Boban And in my opinion Revathy gave her career's best performance in this film.
About the story ,Virus is a 2 Hr 32 Min long medical thriller which tells about the 2018 Nipah outbreak.

Each and Every cast has performed wonderfully and it is a gripping family/medical Thriller,my personal opinion do watch in the theater as the on screen reception of this film is too good to be missed.

Personal rating is 4.5
Cheers to more such good movies!
