Storyline

On leave from his army assignment, Krishnakumar returns home to witness tyranny and corruption at the hands of corrupt police, and even more corrupt and oppressive politicians. He also finds out that his Education Minister father, Balaganghadharan, as well as two brother-in-laws are also part of this system, and he decides to speak out against them. As a result he alienates himself so much so that he is not permitted to attend his sister's marriage which has taken place against her will. His friendship with Sarika will turn to romance, and he will eventually decide if he wants a harmonious life with his family or enter his name in the elections against his very own father and his evil associates - who will go to any lengths to prevent him from winning.

A good political entertainer
12 July 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The story revolves around a father son duo . Father being a position greedy politician while the son working tirelessly for the welfare of the people . Director Joshi is well know for churning out good family entertainers. This being one of them . Somewhere in the middle we feel that the story sags a bit . Songs find entry at unnecessary junctures. But the director does well in bringing out the father son competition in the best possible way. Even further the comedy and punch dialoges are quite well timed. On the whole a good suggestion for malayalies who wish to watch a entertainer with the whole family .The lead roles were done justice by dileep and kavya but the support cast could have been better.
