Good movie from Mohanlal in quite a while.
20 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

Balettan which turned out to be a needed hit for Mohanlal is a pretty good movie. Since mohanlal as been doing over the top roles for a quite a few films , the story lines have gotten predictable and shallow. This is a change of pace for mohanlal as he plays Balettan someone who is humble and a family man. The Movie is very funny in the beginning the with Jagathi - Harishree Asokan team providing good comedy. The story shift to a serious tone as the movie progresses and the plot has more value. It a must see for any mohanlal fan or anyone who watches malayalam cinema as the storylines have gotten weaker in the industry this is one that stands out.
