Shameless copy of a Hollywood movie
17 January 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Lack of creativity would be an apt description for this movie. An outright xerox copy of the "Fugitive" with minute exceptions. Even the dialogs were an exact translation of the Hollywood movie. It is quite embarrassing to see such plagiarism. Malayalam and Bengali movies are known for their originality, but that's not at all evident here. Mohanlal tried his best but wasn't very convincing as the accused doctor. The supporting actors just sleepwalked through their respective roles. Nedumudi Venu's talent was just wasted in the priest's role. My advise would be to watch the original Fugitive-Harrison Ford instead of this cheap imitation.
