Malayalam Cinema is back !!!!!!!!!!!!
25 December 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

For all you people who has been shedding tears about no good movie gets made nowadays, it is time for you to stop worrying, well for the time being at least, because this is a terrific movie. The acting by all the actors, especially Lal and Prithviraj was terrific without going over the top. The direction, screenplay and camera work is commendable as well. It takes guts to put your money on such projects and Lal after the endless masala flicks has come up trumps with this. It might be fictional, the story might be one sided. Like in one review I saw a reviewer asking where is the evil man's side of the story. So if one can be very harsh that is the minor blip if one can say it so. But overall in malayalam cinema for the last decade or so this is one of the very few gems that have come out. I never expected it from Madhupal!!! Well, I guess I was wrong. So in short all you people who like good cinema, please support this film by buying an original copy of the film from video centers...please...
