Realistic and disturbing
18 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie will disturb you after you watch. Perfect screen play. Scenes are realistic especially in the beginning of the movie. The genre is investigative but runs on different track with respect to the contemporary Malayalam cinema of that time.

Sukumaran is just fantastic to watch and so real. Same with Sankarady. The movie begins with Suprana's death and subsequent scenes in which different characters remembers what all things happened around the same time when they heard the gun shot. The scenes of Sankaradi are very well taken.

The casting is unconventional and justified. One may surprise Suparna and Sukumaran as husband and wife but it is very well justified.

The movie depends mainly on the screenplay and the casting.
