Must Watch, 18 August 2006
Author: nmadhuk3 from United Kingdom

There are some movies that you have to revisit when you are "grown-up" and living in "the city".Those movies take you back through time to drop you somewhere when you were a kid.This is one such movie.

Mohanlal and Sreenivasan team up again to woo the moviegoers.Both of them have their own styles.And this is very well shown in this movie where they act as foils.One with the slapstick comedy and the other with the wooden face and serious look and yet evoking as much laughter as the other.Kartika has also done her job well.

The movie is unpretentious,a refreshing change from the movies now,full of multiplexes and fast-food romance.If you haven't already seen it and call yourself a Malayalam movie fan,please stand corrected.Either watch it or drop the tag!
