One of the best Malayalam movies!
17 November 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Everything about this movie is fantastic: the script, the acting, the story. It was even remade in Hindi (called 'Hungama') in 2003 and directed by Priyadarshan himself.

It was remade scene for scene. For those seeing the Hindi version first would enjoy the clever storyline and performances. Akshaye Khanna and Paresh Rawal are good.

HOWEVER, the Malayalam version is far, far better! It's got a star cast: Mohanlal, Menaka, Jagathi Sreekumar, Sukumari, Nedumudi Venu. Not to mention all the other side actors! It's too good!

The songs are catchy. The climax has got to be one of the funniest ever.

I believe this was Priyadarshan's first film. Don't miss this one - even if you have seen the Hindi version!
