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.
