Cult Classic!
31 October 2012 | by (the Entertainment Capital of India) – See all my reviews

Now, this is Malayalam movie at its best!

First of all, I would like to bow for the greatest thespians - Madhu & Jagadish for the fabulous performance. They act so well that the viewer gets inside the movie.

The whole plot might go haywire in this 21st century but if you look from the humor point of view, it is amazing. The timing of jokes, slapstick & perfect statements will tickle your bone for sure!

Buy a DVD & watch it. This must be archived for its classic theme! Comedy movie at it best because there is not a single sequence where you won't laugh holding your stomachs! Great job, director!
