The story unfolds as Unnikrishnan (Mammootty), a convict, now free from the jail tells his tragic love story to his fellow passengers in a school bus. An orphan and a forest officer by profession, he falls in love with a local girl, Thulasi, during his stay at a forest area. They decided to get married and he sets off to inform his marriage to his best friend. On his way back the police arrests him as a suspected criminal, who has some visible similarities of Unnikrishnan. There he accidentally kills a police man and gets life imprisonment. During his early days at jail, he writes a letter to Thulasi asking to forget him. When his prison term was about to complete, he wrote a letter to light a lamp if she still waits for him. After long years of torments in the jail he goes to meet Thulasi, and does she still waits for him? That's the question of his fellow passengers too. Written by siv

Brilliant movie and moving narrative!!!!
17 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The First movie I fell in love with. Arguably Balu Mahendra's best work!! A tragic love story which always manages to bring a tear to even the hardhearted. The story starts with Unnikrishnan an orphan forest guard posted to a rural forest village who falls for a village girl and tries to convince her that he's not like other guards who are infamous for faking relationships just get them into bed and then leaves. He promptly wins her over and leaves to invite his only friend for the wedding. On way he gets arrested mistakenly for a known criminal. a hustle follows and he accidentally kills a police officer and get life imprisonment. During his early days he writes a letter to his fiancée telling her to forget him. But as his prison term ends he again writes to her and asks her to light a lamp near at a tree if still waiting for him.

The movie is told in a flash back narrative style where the hero is telling the story to a students no a tour bus who gave him a ride to the rural village.
