The beauty of the film lies in the fact that Perunthachan is portrayed as a three dimensional character, of flesh and blood rather than the poetic mythical son in parayi petta panthirukulam. His actions are based upon envy, grief and ego, three concepts which reflect in every Hindu mythological story. The acting of Thilakan is awe inspiring and the movie adds another feather to the mater actor's crown.- Written by Harikrishnan D
