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

Mohanlal,Sreenivaasan's and Roshan Andrew's movie
1 February 2005 | by (India) – See all my reviews

One of the best movies of Mohanlal I have seen recently after Aaram Thampuran. Mohanlal plays the role of Udayabhaanu,a struggling assistant director trying to make it big in the cine world. Sreenivaasan plays the role of Rajappan aka Saroj Kumar,a superstar, who made it to the top by cheating Udayabhaanu. The story is about how Udayabhaanu makes Saroj Kumar act in his film, that too unknowingly. The climax is a novelty in Malayalam movie history.

Mohanlal enacts the role of Udayabhaanu splendidly and maturely, without overdoing it. He is able to bring about the frustrations of a person who is not able to fulfill his dreams. Sreenivaasan brings in the humour in the film, enacting the role of a superstar which he becomes by stealing the script of his friend. Jagathy also has done a neat job in the film.

What could have been an ordinary film has been made special by a débutante director Roshan Andrews. The script is also a strong point of the film,created by Sreenivaasan himself. This is an entertainer in all sense.
