Snooze-fest, but better than Shaji's recent movies
Shaji Kailas finally understands that shaking the camera or sizzling up the frames with over-edgy editing can induce only nausea for viewers. After the headache of 'Sound Of Boot' and 'Red Chillies', he delivers a movie without his irritating technical gimmicks. Now swap the non-existent storyline with a good one, and we may actually end up getting a quality movie from this once promising director. Coming to the movie, the performances of Mammootty and Manoj K. Jayan, are the only redeeming factors apart from Shaji's toned down edginess. The storyline is a mess and A.K. Saajan has borrowed ideas from movies ranging from Manichithrathazhu to his solo good movie Chinthamani Kolacase. Unwarranted comedy sequences (the bane of Malayalam movies nowadays) and zero suspense reduces the movie to be a prescription for insomnia at least a couple of times during its running time. The supernatural angle of the movie is sketchily described and the plot holes left in this process is too glaring to overlook. It's not a good movie by any means; but Shaji has bettered his previous horrible movies with a bad movie - that is comforting. (3.5 / 10)
