Really Good
15 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

I really liked this movie the first time I saw it when it originally came out in 1999 and instantly became one of my favorites. It had some real good songs too. Since it was a more serious nature movie (towards end) , never got into the mood or time to watch again. Saw the movie lying around recently and decided to watch it again. Again the movie is still good as I originally remembered.

The movie was made at the Pre-Dileep superstar time before the super hit Meesha Madhavan and hero image. When Dileep was slowly rising and was still playing a combination of a realistic and light comedy roles. I would say this movie & Mazhathullikkilukkam (2002) really stick out as good natural role Dileep movies before super-stardom and showed Dileep had talent and was gong places. I just hope Dileep gets more good stories like this and does not play into the mass action hero image now that he is a star.

The first half of the movie is light comedy that only Dileep can pull off. The is the first movie where Dileep & Kavya Madhavan are paired and you can already see the good chemistry between the lead pair. The second half is where the story takes a dramatic turn and which sets the story apart. The turn of events shy away from the typical masala happy ending and is more realistic. The ending is real sad, and make you wonder and think what could have been. The way the story makes Dileep and Kavya meet again through fate is executed good. The supporting cast all fit their role perfectly and do a good job. Over all the movie has the right mixture of storytelling, humor, drama and good songs which makes it a must watch. It's a thought provoking movie that makes you think about fate and destiny in life.
