Govardhan, a doctor by profession, is wrongly accused of bombing a train and is jailed by the British in Cellular Jail, also known as Kala Pani in Andaman and Nicobar Islands. He witnesses sufferings of hundreds of Indian prisoners there.
Well, I enjoyed the concept and it was directed very well by Rosshan Andrrews. This may not be a realistic portrayal of problems caused by land mafia nevertheless it was quite interesting & engaging till the end.
It was refreshing to see comedy in actor Lalu Alex's villain role. Mohanlal & he save the movie. What's also appealing is the contribution from other actors like Jagathy(wonderful), Manian Pillai Raju(hilarious in a drunken scene), and of course the pretty actresses Lakshmi Rai, Lakshmi Gopalaswamy and Priyanka Nair.
The initial few scenes were quite boring which robbed some shine from this movie. Also, I find the locations or setting plain & ordinary. And what's actor Shankar doing here? They say Mohanlal & Shankar come back acting together after nearly 20 years but the latter had virtually nothing to do here. Sad.
Verdict: Fails to thrill as a whole but still a likable family movie.
