One of the best Malayalam films ever! Its about how Vijayan and Dasan played by Mohanlal and Sreenivasan survive all odds to earn a decent living.
15 March 2005 | by (India) – See all my reviews

One of the best Malayalam films ever! Its about how Vijayan and Dasan played by Mohanlal and Sreenivasan survive all odds to earn a decent living. It has some of the most remembered scenes in Mal movies like the scene with Gafoor. You will never get tired of this "for the masses film" where disasters that happen to middle class average people are portrayed with humor and how they finally overcome all odds. Mohanlal and Sreenivasan are outrageous laugh riot where Srinivasan has a inferiority complex about his dark, short PDC. Mohanlal hides his complex in a seemingly superiority complex of being tall, handsome and BCOM-first class. Excellent!
