Fine example of Malayalam Cinema
19 January 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

As I write this review i am sitting here with the excitement of having viewed two great films in one day.One is Hotel Rwanda and the other Kaiyoppu.People, this is one fine piece of work and i highly recommend you see it soon. The film tells the story of a writer, rather a wannabe writer,Balachandran who has written a manuscript that becomes the talk among literary circles.The problem is that he is a few pages away from completing it when he is struck with writer's block.Enter Shivdas,A small time publisher who upon reading the manuscript,is so excited by it that he hounds him to complete it.As the story progresses we join Balachandran as he attempts to finish his work.Several characters enter the foray, in the form of an old flame,the lodge owner,a sick child and Balachandran's uncle.By the end you find yourself rooting for the characters and actually hoping that everything turns out well.

Mammooty excels once again and the other actors especially the guy playing Firoz Babu are commendable.The dialog is wonderful and quite a many were received with a hand by the audience.The script is beautifully written and some scenes have stunning visuals.The picturisation of the only song,jalte Hain Jiske liye, an old Hindi song, is beautifully done.

This film is gonna sit well with all types of audience and i am sure it will be well received by all.I cant wait to get familiar with director Renjith's other work.
