Its quite good. Stands out from the recent releases in being more experimental in nature. Its basically a revenge drama. The structuring of the story into Purappadu, Kalikkai, Thodayam, Attam and Kalasham(of Kathakali) accompanied by usage of flashbacks is quite a novel thing in Malayalam Cinema. Indrajith, who plays a Kathakali artist in the film, has given an electrifying performance. Thilakan, as always has done well and his character has similarities to The Godfather. Siddique has the scary looks but did overact at some points in the movie. The movie is intensely polished, well toned and paced, with excellent cinematography. The climax disappoints us which is nothing more than a physical showdown b/w the hero and the villain.
