Crime thriller of Malayalam cinema in 80's
12 March 2017 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I Have watched this movie as part of my mission of watching all Padmarajan Movies . He is one of my favorite directors. This movie is also an example of skill as a director who can visualize all kind of subject and portray it beautifully in celluloid

Mohanlal and mammootty, Karthika do their acting effortlessly. There are three more female characters who are suspects in the crime.

The flip side of the movie is that, The investigating officer is not reaching the culprit using his intelligence ,by chance he reaches to him.
