- Direction, Screenplay
- Routine elements
- Lack of Emotions
- Lack of twists
On the whole, the ATM web series has an exciting storyline and a realistic backdrop. Though there are thrills here and there, the director failed to make it an engaging thriller. The sluggish narration in the first few episodes and unnecessary lag makes it an average web series. You can stream this weekend.
