This film ranks among MT Vasudevan Nair's best works in Malayalam and came when he was at his peak in cinematic endeavours. The story revolves around Seema, who loves and loses Mammootty. MT proves that he's unparalleled when it comes to portraying relationships and problems within the family. A film for all seasons.
