Storyline

Kalyani (Played by Renjini) decides to marry her boyfriend against her father's (Poornam Vishwanathan) wishes. But her boyfriend ditches her when she comes to know that she would be disinherited. Kalyani's father, Ramachandra Menon, who stays in US, is unaware of the ditching and comes to spend his vacation with his daughter and son in law. This prompts Kaimail (Nedumudi Venu), who takes care of Kalyani to hire Vishnu (Mohanlal) to play the role of Kalyani's husband. But Kalyani's cousin, Bhaskaran (Sreenivasan) is aware that Vishnu is not Kalyani's husband and tries to inform Menon about the truth with proof so that he can inherit Menon's wealth. Meanwhile Vishnu and Kalyani never get on well and keeps on fighting. But later she develops an affection for him and wishes that she could marry him. But the arrival of a mysterious stranger (played by M G Soman) takes the story to a different turn as it unfolds Vishnu's past. Written by Dhanya

mohanlal's one of the greatest movie
29 October 2006 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

This is one of the greatest hits mohanlal and priyadarshan have ever made. The Malayalam film industry discovered MG Sreekumar, the talented young singer from his excellent songs. The movie is stuffed with comedy scenes although it has a tragic end. Mohanlal, Renjini, Nedumudi venu, Sreenivasan have acted so naturally that the movie is unforgettable. the movie was one of the biggest commercial hits of Malayalam in the late eighties. Mohanlal has showed his talents by his versatile acting throughout the movie. Two great combination of the times, Mohanlal-Sreenivasan and Mohanlal-Priyadarshan made the film one of the biggest hit in Malayalam.
