A superb movie
18 May 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

One of the best movies by Joshi. A very moving and in the same time thrilling film. Adding to the superb script by Lohitadas is the stunning performance of Mammooty and Seema in making it an extra-ordinary endeavor.

Chandru(played by Mammooty) is a truck driver a very rude and hard stoned person outside but internally a very soft-hearted person. Unfortunately his fellow mate(who was like a brother to him) meets with an accident and dies in the beginning of the movie. He takes the body to his mate's home and decides to fulfill his mate's last wish to build a home. The further developments after this make up the movie's story which is a well crafted one, revealing the goodness in a guy who seems to be outspoken and ruthless outside.
