Storyline

Rajeev Menon (Mohanlal) is a wealthy orphan, a spoilt rich brat who grew up to be an eccentric millionaire. While his trusty manager (Karamana Janardhanan Nair)takes care of his vast estates, Rajeev drowns his days in alcohol. His lack of values stems from bitter childhood memories of his mother deserting his father. His eccentricities vary from picking up drunken brawls with strangers to wanting to experience 'interesting' things in life like being handcuffed by the police. Winds of change gush into his lonely life when he agrees to play host to his friend Scaria's (Nedumudi Venu) family for the vacation. Scaria's brood of mischievous kids take a liking to Rajeev. As they tear his palatial house down, they also make him realize what he's been missing in life. Once they leave, he feels a void in his existence which he intends to fill by adopting a child. When he is denied adoption due to his wayward ways, his friend Dr. Hameed (Sukumaran) suggests artificial insemination as a way of ... Written by Prabhu Manohar

Sibi Malayil's direction plus the awesome on screen presence of the gifted actor Mohanlal pulls off one of the well sorted out movies ever made in malayalam history. The unusual story line of a wealthy guy who doesn't know what he wants is articulately played by Mohanlal.Murali delivers an appreciable performance along with Rekha who plays his wife.Karamana Janardhanan Nair and Sukumaran also deserve praise. The story starts off showing the carelessness of Mahanlal as we get the spoiled rich brat feeling. Then he feels that he needs some responsibility in life and what does he do ? decides to adopt a baby.That too from his own blood .The thing is that he doesn't want to marry.Then Rekha who needs some money comes into the picture and the doctor played by Sukumaran arranges a meeting.Rekha need the money to treat Murali and she agrees to bear Mohanlal's child. The ending has a special thing about it and the charisma of Sibi Malayil is shown off conclusively. Great film to watch and a collectors item for sure.
