An outstanding drama

Not always do we come across such wonderfully made emotional pictures. I was actually told very much about the movie by my brothers before I got the opportunity to see it myself. And when I experienced it myself, after all it was as good as they claimed, if not better.

In a happy family with music heritage, Nedumudi Venu is Mohanlal's brother and guru, and an excellent singer. He reigns in the family and in the society with his music. But because of his addiction with alcohol, he loses his control over the music and people start prefering his sishya and brother Mohanlal. Considering this as an insult, he starts hating his brother and strives hard to recover from alcoholism. Unable to accept his defeat, he sets to get out of his habit by going on a yatra. Parallely Mohanlal, getting to know that Venu is killed in an accident, is forced to conceal this truth because of their vocally disabled sister's marriage. Mohanlal's trauma is sure to cast down any viewer as a matter of fact thanks to his performance.

A good choice of actors and crew, with a good plot. Expressive Mohanlal befits the role. Music blends with the movie and Yesudas has given his best, Ramakadha Ghanalayam being the pinnacle. I am sure Yesudas enjoys singing for such movies and the his emotional singing adds value to Mohanlal's character in the songs. Choice of Balamuralikrishna for Nedumudi Venu and Yesudas for Mohanlal is just perfect.

Indeed one of the best movies I have seen. No let downs.
