Storyline

Neelakandan (Mohanlal) is the heir to the Mangalasherry family who squanders away his father's largest and is a dependable menace to society. One of his victims is promising dancer Bhanu (Revathi) who vows never to dance again till his death following a public affront by Neelakandan and his cronies. Ironically they fall in love. Meanwhile, the vicious Shekaran (Napoleon) of a rival clan has sworn to avenge the death of his uncle, killed by Neelakandan's men. A reasonably watchable film that goes fairly awry towards the second half. Innocent is good as Neelakandan's long-suffering manservant. Written by Joyojeet Pal

More a powerful romance than an action flick
31 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

Not many films of Mohanlal combines the romantic aspect as well as the action parts well. This film appears to belong to the minority. There is real chemistry between Revathi and Lal. This film also has one of my favorite scenes. The sequence where Revathi upstages Lal after dancing for him is certainly an all time great scene. All the characters are etched well in this film (a rarity in Malayalam films). The only short comings are the allownces made for audiences in the form of fight sequences. The movie could have been so much stronger had it been dealt with a little more subtleness.
