Story: Five women with unsettled, individual pasts get into troubled waters with a sudden twist of fate. They manage to settle an issue together discreetly and try to forget the episode, but the past does not seem ready to let go of them that easily.

Review : If what you want is to sit back and relax with a packet of popcorn, 100 Degree Celsius is not the film for you, as you would mostly be on your seat's edge, scene after scene. Rakesh Gopan joins the pack the debutant directors in Malayalam, who tell unprecedented stories. Besides a handful of glitches in execution that sets occasional boredom, the film keeps you interested.

An IT professional, a TV reporter, a bank employee and a college student are flat mates and painful pasts have stamped mistrustfulness towards men in their minds. Nevertheless, they play warm guests to a couple, who are friends of the reporter inmate, one night. A death, which is baffling both for the characters and viewers, happen in their apartment and the rest of the story is woven around the mystery behind it, consequences and aftermath.

All the lead actresses bring alive the pain and vexation of people trapped in conflicting priorities and the first half is hair-raising and nerve-racking enough for a thriller. There is no moment of laughter or fun, but your eyes will stay glued to the screen to see what's next. Though the sudden and unexplainable death of a character stumps you and the reason stays unrevealed throughout the film, the average audience wouldn't mind blinking it away.

However, the second half has a soap opera feel with a series of blackmails and supine victims. At many junctures, the audience would want to scream at the characters - 'for God's sake please communicate' - and as their frequent hesitations bring in a droning quality to the narrative. Needless to say, the film tests patience at this stretch. Nevertheless, Mynaa fame actor Sethu scares the audience convincingly as the spooky tormentor of the lead characters.

In a nutshell, the beginning is interesting and the build-up, decent. The director could have left fewer questionmarks at the end, but guess he manages to justify that in the beginning by terming the film as just the first part of the story
