Storyline

Loosely based on the Sandra Bullock starrer 'While you were sleeping'& equipped with Fazil's scripting prowess, Priyadarshan whipped up yet another of his trademark 'mistaken identity laugh riots' with Chandralekha. Appukuttan (Mohanlal) is an unemployed man in desperate need of money to help his father fight a civil case. He lands up in the city to find a job with the help of his childhood friend Noor (Srinivasan). Their plans to get a bank loan to fund a small business go haywire. One fine day, Appukuttan ends up saving the life of Chandra (Sukanya) a wealthy heiress and is mistaken by her estranged family to be her husband Alfy. As Chandra sinks into a coma, Appukuttan & Noor take advantage of the situation to earn a quick buck. They black-mail & rope in the house-hold's man Friday Iravikuttan Pilla (Innocent) into their plans of duping Chandra's doting dad (Nedumudi Venu). They almost get away with the plan, when Iravi's daughter & Chandra's best friend Lekha (Pooja Bhatra) lands ... Written by Prabhu Manohar

While you were sleeping, in Malayalam
12 April 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Overlong, and funny only in spurts (but when it is good, it is really good)

  • worth watching for Sreenivasen's antics as a buffoon/impostor who ends
up having to play the part of a management executive. There is a particularly hilarious sequence in a hospital, where Mohanlal and Sreenivasen are both pretending to be the semi-conscious Chandra's husband.
