An intense Blessy cinema
1 March 2008 | by (Bangalore, India) – See all my reviews

This is the first Blessy-directed movie I saw. Its a nicely done movie on sex rackets destroying lives of the commoners. Melodious songs and splendid performance(as usual) from actress Meera Jasmine. Even hero Dileep had done a commendable job. However scenes related to the spirit of the dead was unnecessary. The same goes to moments wher Meera experiences certain "visions" of her husband's dying moments. Blessy doesn't truly pay much attention to these scenes(in the larger context of the movie) and thereby end up confusing the viewers. That's where the movie faltered. At the end, we're not sure if Blessy wanted to highlight the tragedies of sex rackets or a peep into the world of the dead! Enough focus was not given to either of the subjects. Verdict ~ Well, it's better than College Kumaran. You may watch it if you LOVE Meera Jasmine :)
