One of the best political satires in malayalam
23 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A movie which makes fun of the political gimmicks in kerala and how the public is affected by it all...

The writer and director does a very good job in making mockery of all the kerala political parties.

The story is about the family of a retired station master which consists of his wife, 3 sons and 2 daughters. The two elder sons are local leaders of rival political parties. How the family goes through this infight between brothers forms the crux of the story.

One of the best efforts of the Sreenivasan & Sathyan Anthikkad team, this film is sure to make you laugh as well as think.
