A Smart Crime Thriller, No Doubt
19 April 2010 | by (Bangalore, India) – See all my reviews

This is one of those movies that I began to watch with zero expectation(the previous show in the theatre had no audience) but was bowled over at the end. The direction was very good, editing's smart, very interesting storyline and performances true to the roles.

I enjoyed Suresh Gopi's performance the most as he effectively expresses love, parental care, grief and vengeance at varying moments. Mohanlal was class, as expected. Even impressive were Biju Menon and Jyothirmayee. Priyalal as Suresh Gopi's daughter was decent.

A lot of typical clichés were avoided in the story which gave the movie an intelligent feel from the beginning to end.

Regarding the cons, it's negligible. I felt some of the acting could have been better by some of the supporting cast. Besides that, I think many of the entertainment-seeking youth might have been hesitant to watch this movie as it has less action and more of intellectual drama. But almost all who have seen it, liked it including yours truly. Eventually, the good word of mouth opinion will spread and hopefully make the movie decent money.

Verdict - A smart crime drama, sprinkled with legal brilliance. Go for it.
