Storyline

Thanks to a script stolen from assistant director Udayabhanu, Rajappan Thengummoodu becomes superstar Saroj Kumar overnight. Udayan is left heart-broken but fate comes in the form of Babykuttan who wants to produce a movie with Udayan in the director's seat. And when Superstar Saroj Kumar starts working in the film, things looked to be in the right track. But when the project nears completion, Saroj walks out from the project due to an ego clash with Udayan. Now Udayan must shoot the rest of the movie without the knowledge of Saroj leading the movie to an exciting climax. Written by Invisible Man

One of the Best Mohanlal movies... certainly the best off late!
6 March 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This is an amazing movie. I'm glad Mohanlal finally got a role that suited his age! I was actually fed up of him portraying larger than life kind of roles.

This is a Malayalam ver of Bowfinger- n guess what?!- it's better! N actually... if one sums it up- the feel is way different from the original.

Here's finally one amazing movie... really good. Some hard core Mammootty fans wouldn't like it though... cos' many have formed a negativity towards Mohanlal- an outcome due to the constant comparison in between them by fans. I know this is kinda cheap... but it's true! There's this scene in which Mohanlal seems to have... not acted properly. The one where he shouts, "I've finally got the Climax sequence!" That part... seems clumsy... but here's the point- don't people get clumsy? In this movie... he's playing a comparatively real character... so... I don't find any flaw in that scene.

Later on... Mohanlal just proves why he's one of the Best of The Best in the country. Amazing acting...! Some would believe Sreenivasan has stolen the show... but that's not true. Some may feel it that way just because Sreenivasan's character is more colorful. Actually, it's Mohanlal all the way...

I just loved the move... the way the movie turned in the end... every part of it! An enjoyable ride. I'm glad that Mohanlal acted in at least one movie (off late) that justifies his supremacy.

I'm just waiting for the DVD to be released- I'll surely buy it!
