Simply out of the world!
21 June 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

When I was a child my favorite song was "Pramadhavanam", but I never got around to seeing the movie then, but now I finally see it and it totally blew my mind, soul and heart away ! Amazing plot set in the uniquely traditional royal Hindu family of Kerala with Matrilinear families and the related issues. Bring into that a hired Muslim assassin pretending to be a Brahmin singer and you have the ultimate plot. Set Mohanlal as the assassin and the Film is set to be a hit. Finally bring in the magic voice of Yesudas and voilà, this wonder is made !

A must see for any Keralite and for anyone who understands Malayalam. If not, see it with subtitles although I doubt English ones are available or even if available will convey the same feel.

I can't believe it just has one review but then again... mallu movies are not exactly the thing for IMDb users :P
