The movie is more about creating an atmosphere of the campus life of 80s than revealing a solid plot. The plot is thin. Mohanlal dons the role of Lal, affectionately called Lalettan, is an eternal student at the college and the movie revolves around him, but rarely focusing on him alone. The various characters in the story are all done so non-stereotypically, it is still considered as one of the best campus movies ever made in Malayalam.
There is hardly any character whom we don't feel affection for, be it Chakkara, Father Kuttanadan, or Lal himself.
Alive with characters and moments of poignant emotions, the movie is a definite collectible.
