After initial 10 minutes I already knew what I am gonna get but good acting and some twists and turn (though predictable) kept me going.

We enjoyed it a lot.

It's thrilling.

Perhaps the best Indian mystery to date and a genuine film noir, Manorama is a movie that superbly captures life in provincial India, moving along at a deliberately slow pace, without ever getting dull.

And while I liked the atmosphere, I missed a bit of zim and menace in its languid pace.

You almost feel like you are in a place where there is nothing much to do, and the protagonist, rightly so , goes headlong into something that would take him away from his otherwise boring life.

'Manorama 6 Feet Under' is one exciting puzzle and a treat to watch.

At times bizarre, at times fascinating, the movie is arguably the first of its kind in offbeat Hindi cinema.

The background score is slow,diverse, and powerful, and the direction is excellent; though the film appears slow at some moments.

There are enough twists and turns, a must for any detective story, and thankfully, some are quite unpredictable.

Most fascinating is the background music that moves with beautiful landscapes.

engineer who also writes detective stories and novels, is living his usual course of boringly simple and event-less life unless contacted by a lady(Sarika), who claims to be the wife of the irrigation minister and ex-maharaja of Lakhot P.

People who have lived major part of their lives in a small town of India and know the slow and uneventful life.

FIRSTLY,I would like to sound a warning to those who see a movie just purely for the fun aspect or those who like fast paced fare.

The pace is slow at times with these two goondas alloted too much time with a dialog fit for comics.

The movie in my opinion makes the film more enjoyable for a middle-class Indian than anybody else.

complete waste of time...

On the whole a movie definitely worth watching.

The hot sand, empty roads, dried bushes, burning sun and desert mountains are stunning and a bonus to this fast paced story that has twists after twists.

Manorama Six Feet Under is an intriguing, complex and offbeat thriller set in a sleepy small town of Rajasthan.

Abhay Deol looks adorable and has done a brilliant job keeping it simple, down to earth and yet intense.

Though the movie is slow, the cinematography is worth a watch.

The film is really slow moving and complicated....

I must say it is a marvellous experiment in the age of boringly monotonous and repeatedly made big-budget, love-story cum family-dramas and stupid looking action films.

Slow Moving awful plot .

Verbally sparse, intelligent, and visually striking, the movie holds your interest despite its languid pace.

its slower than tragic shabhana azmi films...

People who are used to the escapist Bollywood fare may find the movie too slow or confusing.

Sarika is stunning in the title role and Kulbushan Kharbanda and Vinay Pathak are very good.

Though this is a intense movie, it has some thrilling sequences which unfolds secrets throughout the film, till the last minute.
