Storyline

Kalidasan (Lal) is a chronic bachelor working in the state Archaeological department and is a foodie. His only companion is his cook cum confidant Babu (Baburaj). Manu Raghav (Asif Ali) is Kalidasan's nephew and he comes to his uncle's place, while searching for a job. Kalidasan's boring life gets an altogether different twist with a wrong call from Maya (Shweta Menon), a spinster who is a dubbing artiste, living as a paying guest with her friend Meenakshi (Mythili). It all starts when Maya dials for a dosa and gets Kalidasan on line, instead of the food joint. As expected, the initial conversations between these two unusual characters create negative vibes and are peppered with choice abuses, but a long-distance romance develops because they have a similar interest-cooking and food. If Kalidasan is a born foodie, Maya is reaching for her late mother by indulging in culinary activities which evoke a sense of deep nostalgia in her. Having struck up an affinity over the telephone, ... Written by Wikipedia

Lovely innovative approach, pretty ordinary and predictable plot but the elements of humor and a theme-based presentation makes it a feast to savor upon.
24 July 2011 | by (United Arab Emirates) – See all my reviews

As the name suggests, food is the basic theme of the movie, as we can understand from the opening credits itself, where it shows many of the most popular food joints and restaurants across Kerala. The male protagonist is an extreme food lover, as is clearly demonstrated with the help of some neat and clever humor. Lal, as always, performed a captivating role as Kalidasan. Asif Ali's performance as Manu (nephew of Kalidasan) is pretty average, as expected. So is Mythili's (as Meenakshi). Shweta Menon plays the female protagonist opposite Lal, and does a good job as Maya (Mythili's room-mate). A notable appearance is that of Baburaj (as Kalidasan's cook) in an out-of-norms character which comes as a pleasant and enjoyable surprise.

The plot starts off with Kalidasan and Maya coincidentally talking over a wrong phone call, that too involving 'dosa' which is a traditional South Indian food. Then everything goes as expected till they decide to meet, and then involves Manu and Meenakshi. Vijayaraghavan comes into the movie with a sub-plot which again is pretty ordinary and predictable. Towards the end, you begin to feel whether the story-writer was just trying to somehow find a climax and get over with it.

Overall, it goes down as an entertainment movie with a difference, and the director Ashiq Abu has to be praised for boldly trying out a different approach to story-telling in Malayalam cinema. My Rating: 7/10.
