Probably The Best Malayalam Comedy Ever. ♦ 95%
10 June 2013 | by (the Entertainment Capital of India) – See all my reviews

There will never be any other movie like Nadodikattu. Because, it is entertains, enthralls & intrigues with total determination. The story, plot, cinematography, slapstick, humor and everything is top notch.

Mohanlal & Srinivasan's evergreen duet as suckers who go onto become CID agents, thanks to their fates, are the characters that will blow your mind. The character depth is immense. Their exploits with Thilakan and other cast is terrific. How a serious crime movie churns out humor in every single scene of its running time is sheer mastery. A salute to the creators of this epic movie.

BOTTOM LINE: Watch the trilogy for non-stop enjoyment. Laughter guaranteed.

Can be watched with a typical Indian family? YES

No anti-social elements involved. Crime is showcased, but is harmless.
