Worth a watch
27 January 2008 | by (Washington DC) – See all my reviews

It was interesting to me to see what Lal Jose comes up with after his highly successful "Classmates". The movie had Sreenivasan in the lead and being a big fan of the man (as an actor too) I thought this movie would definitely have its moments. The storyline in the movie did have a lot of promise. The plight of the blue collars in the gulf and the perception of the gulf in kerala, the political ambitions of some in Kerala are pretty well depicted. The fallacy in the sincerity of present day politicians and the fact that the ones with true passion in them are often overshadowed had been a pretty standard fare in malayalam movies for sometime. Srenivasan has done a good job as usual and so are most of his costars. But the movie would have made a better impact with tighter script. The movie drags in the middle and hence the bigger message in the movie gets a little diluted. But I guess in todays generation of sub-par movies this movie deserves some kudos and is definitely worth a watch.
