twenty20 prequel!!
2 June 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

the reason why i call this a twenty20 prequel, is that this film has a distinct similarity to the 2008 all star cast film. even though there is no Mohanlal, it does feature Mammooty, Jayaram, Suresh Gopi and a relatively unknown national award winning Tamil superstar Vikram!!! this is also a crime/action thriller directed by Joshi, who is not bothered about killing off superstars halfway or towards the end of the film( as was evident with Dileep in twenty20, Jayaram and Suresh Gopi in dhruvam).Film has too many flashback,sometimes which can irritate viewers. Sorry if this is already a plot spoiler.

The film focuses on the powerful Mannadiyar family who are viewed as God by the community. Whenever a problem occurs to anyone, they would ring the bell located in mannadiyar's courtyard. Mannadiyars would only go to sleep after they found an answer to the problem. Narasimha Mannadiyar(Mammooty) is the head of the family and is kind of people's king who call him 'thampuran' as sign of respect. his brother Veerasimha Mannadiyar(Jayaram) is everything to him and always tries to fulfill his ambitions. Veerasimha's one such ambition is pursue his MBA career in England,to which Narasimha agrees. but while on the way to the airport, Veerasimha gets brutally murdered with his friend.

the rest of the film is how narasimha and his trusted associates Bhadran(vikram),priest-to-be turned police officer Jose Nariman(suresh gopi)and DIG marar(Janardanan) fight to bring feared serial killer Hyder(who is behind veerasimha's murder)to justice.
