Climax (2021) is a Telugu murder mystery. While the mystery was obvious from the beginning the satirical humour throughout the film was enjoyable. Had the director focused on developing a better screenplay, this movie could’ve been more engaging than it turned out to be. Available on Amazon Prime Video, it gets a Raw rating.
