Storyline

A Hindu Nair boy,Vinod (played by Nivin Pauly) falls in love with a Muslim girl Aisha, (Isha Thalwar) whom he met at the marriage of a close friend of him. Though she also starts loving him after sometime,the Hindu-Muslim religion barrier acts as an obstacle between them. The film tells this love story smoothly and overall comes as a good comedy packed musical flick; in a Thalassery atmosphere! Written by Vishnu Rajeevan

Simple, cute inter-religion love story; but nothing special
6 January 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Hindu youth Vinod has a chance encounter with Aisha, niece of a powerful Muslim political leader, Abdul Khader, and falls in love. The movie starts mid-story, with the hero being jailed for trespassing into Abdul Khader's property to see Aisha. The story unfolds as narrated by Vinod to the Sub Inspector. The soul of the movie is how Vinod explores his feelings for Aisha, and tries to see how she would fit into his life. The style of narration is the revised, youth-centered, casual form that is becoming increasingly popular in Malayalam movies; it's the shifting of gear to a new era.

However, as far as the plot goes, it is simple, cute, and pleasant, but not novel. There is absolutely nothing new in the story. I have been getting rave reviews about the movie, and went in expecting something fresh. It's not. It's enjoyable enough, but simply doesn't have enough content.
