highly overrated
5 April 2010 | by See all my reviews

I've seen this movie twice and i still fail to understand why a hell of a lot of people treat this as a cult movie. This is just a melodramatic movie to say the least. It has a decent story, but it's not at all presented in a subtle manner. The acting from thilakan and mohanlal does leave an impression. But the direction is ordinary. The fight scenes i.e the one where mohanlal removes his mundu may fetch mixed opinions. I for one, was disgusted by that scene. At best, this is a commercial potboiler with a decent story. No class. Nothing great. The name of the movie and the characters are the best part of the movie, not the movie as a whole. Mohanlal has done much better action films where he is enacting a larger-than-life role, Devasuram, Aaram Thamburan and Narasimham.
