I always wondered what Malayalam film makers of the so called golden age would have made if they had the resources of Hollywood or at least bollywood. But then again I see movies like In hariharnagar and decide they never needed it.
Four friends trying to impress one girl and their adventures/misadventures finds the perfect setting for Mukesh, Siddique, Asokan and Jagadeesh to dazzle us with their rib ticking performances. The natural comic timing and believability perfected by the director duo of Sidique Lal is something every Malayalam movie bluff talks about.
The simple story is filled with unforgettable moments and iconic lines that still the present day actors and directors aim to achieve. the songs are really good and the movie has an amazing back ground score, which perfectly blends with each mood and scene. the movie gets serious but you wont feel a a thing. A suave and sophisticated villain john honai is still one of the cult favorites. I would recommend this to all who loves a good laugh and awe at the sheer brilliance of malayalam cinema
I heard the sequel is in the makes, hope its at least half as good as the original.
