The title of Mysskin’s new movie, Pisasu, suggests a change of pace. After years of dealing with stories about dread, you think the director has opted for a genre — horror — that will allow him to ratchet up the queasiness quotient a couple of notches. But despite the presence of the titular spirit, Pisaasu is very much a companion piece to Anjaathey or Yuddham Sei. Here, too, we have a story that revolves around dark, mystifying occurrences (at the interval point, the screen literally turns black) and a procedural-based investigation that, by the end, brings everything to light. Of course, longtime Mysskin watchers will also include the other aspects — visuals, themes, tropes — that position this film firmly in the continuum of his oeuvre.
