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.
