A must watch for all those who love cinema. A terrific performance by MOHANLAL.
13 July 2010 | by (Kayamkulam, India) – See all my reviews

One of the best performances By Mohanlal and Thilakan. Backed up with a very good story and direction which leaves a raw image after u come out of the cinemas. I pity that friend of mine who mentioned about the film as just a mediocre one!!! Wonder why films aren't being made of this class in the current malayalam film industry. Its rated as Mohanlal's, who is considered as one of the finest actors in the industry, one of the best performance so far in his career. The Mohanlal-Thilakan combo scenes are a treat to be watched. Cant really rate who's better. Aaduthoma,the protagonist of the story, is one of the finely etched out characters by the Director-Writer Bharathan. The real life-like characters which used to appear in malayalam film industry as in Sphadikam is gone missing.
