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

Very good movie but very poor performance
16 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie when couple of my friends suggested me to watch it for the story and performance of each casts. Movie was very good. Very good storyline with flawless script. However, Mohanlal was highly disappointing. His eyes were not stable and he was completely out of idea how to carry on with the role. He was only trying to act like a rich, modern, careless man turning to be a responsible father. However, he was not successful. He also seemed to be very artificial and conscious in majority of the scenes. Adding to his performance, I am not sure why the director chose Rekha. Not in a single scene she portrayed her role well. Others' performance were good. If you look at the story perspective, I would give 10/10.
