Trivia

In a interview to a magazine, Mammootty was asked which movie's failure has hurt him most. In a long career that has seen many failures along with successes, he only mentioned one name - Azhakiya Ravanan. Which just shows how close both the movie and the character 'Shankar Das' are to him.

Excellent Movie
13 November 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

It may be the first time out for Mammootty as the anti hero but he rocks in this movie. Mammootty plays the character Shanker Das, a sort of Don from Bombay, who comes to his native village to see his love interest played by Bhanu Priya. But nobody recognizes his as he ran away when still young of age. Sreenivasan portrays the character of Shanker Das's friend who is a novelist. The right amount of comedy and drama is blended by Sreenivasan and Mammootty to make the audience laugh and think at the same time. The climax scenes are the best i have seen in any movie and Mammootty's performance is a praise worthy one. Cochin Haneef chips in with a supporting role along with Biju Menon. Mammootty pictured as an anti hero may not be up to the liking of many people but if you admire the art of cinema this is a must see.
