After losing their jobs, Dasen and Vijayan don't see any chances to get work in Kerala. So they try to escape to the Middle East, but they end up in Tamil Nadu and where mistaken as 2 CIDs by a group of smuglers
Govardhan, a doctor by profession, is wrongly accused of bombing a train and is jailed by the British in Cellular Jail, also known as Kala Pani, in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. He witnesses the sufferings of hundreds of Indian prisoners there.
The film which made me die-hard fan of Mohanlal. Plot written by A.k.Lohithdas & directed by Sibi malayil talks about a young aspiring lad who's life became a hell (his dream seems tumbling off) when circumstance were against him & ended as a noted criminal. A.K Lohithdas scrutiny developed script given each character depth subtly without any unnecessary scene. Mohanlal as a stoic protagonist just mesmerize me with his natural acting, he is natural at his best. To my reckon, this probably may be one among those movie to unleash Mohanlal as a omnipotent actor. Its pity that Mohanlal just got special jury instead of giving best actor. Thilkan as his father was equally superb. Climax scene showing the duo chemistry was arguably best acted ever. In climax Mohanlal makes myriad of emotion and his crumbling emotion will surely evoke oodle of tears. Others supporting actors given ample support which is demanded by them. Songs by Johnson was masterpiece especially Kaneer poovinte, never a keralite can forget this song. Director Sibi easily tow all the actors performance & remain as his laborious work. Movie is juxtaposed in 140 min. Standing ovation to stalwarts like Thilkan, A.k lohithdas & Johnson for their contribution till end.
