That rare masala movie with soul
1 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

This movie is filled with action and may be be best known for the signature Mohanlal-mundu attack, but the father-son relationship is the center-stage for the whole movie. Some scenes are very moving. For example, the scene where Thoma's father is to invite Thoma to his sister's wedding, Mohanlal driving the lorry in anguish, the hospital scene, and yes, the climax.

Mohanlal doesn't have a chiseled body or bulging biceps. But his gait, body language, dialogue delivery - all ooze masculinity. Wonderful acting by Mohanlal and Thilakan. This movie seems something at first, but turns out to be something else.

The story (based on a real-life person), background score and acting all fit into place. A definite watch and an all-time Malayalam classic.
