Storyline

The Kunnath family is headed by the conscientious schoolteacher Madhavan Nair who has two young sons, Raja and Surya. On the day of village festival, a teenage boy belonging to the rival Puthiayara family is accidentally and unknowingly killed by Madhavan Nair. Not wanting his father's good name to be spoiled, Raja takes the blame himself and is sent to jail, resulting in his father denouncing him. After release, Raja ends up becoming the right hand man of a gangster in Madurai, adopting the moniker "Pokkiri Raja". Cut to 25 years later, Surya has fallen in love with Aswathy who happens to be the stepdaughter of a corrupt police commissioner. When the evil cop frames Surya, puts him in lockup and insults Madhavan master, the broken-hearted father vows revenge by bringing back his elder son Raja to rescue Surya and finish the commissioner. Raja takes up the offer enthusiastically and vows in front of the commissioner to unite Surya and Aswathy in marriage. Written by Soumitra

A Tamil Movie in Malayalam Language.
13 July 2010 | by (Chennai, India) – See all my reviews

Vyshak has brought the richness of Tamil film to Malayalam, better than anyone who has tried that before but at a Time when TAMIL and TELUGU movies are moving towards meaningful movies why Malayalam is Copying from 1990s Tamil Formula. This Movie have a Lot of Similarity with Rajamanikkam and Chattambinadu. And After Rajamanikkam, Directors are using the same story and formula and its Getting Irritated to watch more than 10 Minutes.

A Lot of Slow Motion Scenes, that too a Zoom from Legs to Head (around 6 Shots in the initial 15 Minutes) + A Brother + running away from Home for a reason, he had not committed + Coming to Kerala from Another State or Region + Different Slang (Kannada/Tamil). And PUNCH Dialoges used in this movie is so Comical that taken from Some of the Famous Rajni's Tamil Movie like Muthu and also Few scenes from Malaikottai has altered to Malayalam style and last but not least an Action scene (Mammotty at Siddhiq's House) is a Copy cat of first Action Sequence in ATHITHI (Telugu) movie. .

Malayalam is loosing its Nativity with each movies releasing.
