Although this Sathyan Anthikkad - Mohanlal movie does not match their older movies; it still has some charm to it that makes you sit through this uneven yet enjoyable family entertainer.
The director has still not been able to find his feet in the world of script writing and it shows in the whole movie. The pace of the story is uneven, there are jumps and breaks in the plot points and the whole back-story of Meera Jasmine's character was unnecessary. But still what works in favor of the movie is Illayaraja's good background score, nice visuals from Azhagappan, Sathyan Anthikkad's tried and trusted direction and a nice performance from Mohanlal.
The movie belongs with introducing us to three couples and the problems in their marital life and the issues it create for their family. The character of Mohanlal unknowingly becomes a part of their lives and the rest of the story is how he unties the knots and make everyone live happily ever after. Other than Mohanlal, Meera Jasmine, Sukanya, Mohini, Vijayaraghavan, Muthumani, Mukesh and Ashokan do their parts well. Siddique shines in a cameo while Innocent and Mammukoya are hilarious in their parts. The child actors including Niveditha have done well. If it hadn't been for the flaws in the narration, this movie would have been one amongst the director's best. Still, Innathe Chinthavishayam is definitely a cut above the recent no-brainers churned out by Mollywood.
