A movie nothing short of a classic, 20 June 2006
Author: R thomas from India

Shajoon Karyal and Girish Puthencherry team up for the first time to produce nothing short of a masterpiece! Girish Puthenchery has proved that he is not alien to the art of writing stories and screenplays after proving his mettle as a successful lyricist in malayalam moviedom for a long time now. Though the story is set in the recent times, the flashback romantic scenes between Mohanlal and Padmapriya and the not-too-fast-paced narration render the film a classy, timeless feel. The USP of the movie is the songs composed by the late Raveendran which have been the talk of the town for a while now. He will remain in our fond memories for his "kalabham tharaam..." and "Oru kili paattu..." which is a huge sigh of relief from the fast-paced numbers. The movie has got what it takes in terms of old world charm, and it is a must-watch for affectionados of the classy Padmarajanesque era of the 80s. For the techno freaks, don't expect cameras making a sweeping arc from high above in the song sequences and fast editing in this movie. For those of you like slap-stick comedies which are the order of the day, this is not your cup of tea!
