A well made movie by Sibi Malayil
14 June 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Movies like these catch your attention when you skip channels. A work of art is not easy to miss.

This is a movie which may not appeal to a hedonistic generation. There is humour initially but later the movie focuses on the trauma that a family has to go through because of certain misfortunes.

Each character has relevance and all actors have played their parts convincingly including the child artistes. I was especially moved by the character of the little boy in crutches towards the end.

I almost knew while watching this movie that this is a work of Sibi Malayil. His quintessential style is evident in the subject and the handling of the movie.
