A lesson in characterisation
16 September 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Purely a remake of Eddy Murphy's Golden Child, this movie had a minor (yet important) flaw which made it humble at the box office. The 'lovability' of Murphy's character is missing from Asokan, his counterpart played by Mohanlal. Asokan is an arrogant character and is a winner in all the one-on-one competitions he has with his dim-witted cousin while Murphy's character is a humble and innocent one. Viewers tend to sympathise with the cousin instead.

Best thing in this movie is the camera wielded by Santhosh Sivan and the captivating music by none other than A. R. Rehman (his first movie, I believe).

On a positive note, it's more humorous than Golden Child. And the performance of 'Rimpoche' is excellent.
