This movie, to sum up in one line is a humorous, intellectually stimulating adventure. It is comical, but more in the fashion that fans of Hollywood satirical-comedy genre would enjoy, not the mimicry and slapstick of our domestic Malayalam ventures.
The movie is a thought provoking satire on relationships, so if you are someone who doesn't like to think or takes too long to get the joke, this flick isn't for you.
This movie doesn't have a star cast to boast of. Jishnu deserves special mention for his outstanding feat on-screen.
Then there's the late Thilakan and Siddique whose performances were remarkable as expected.
The rest can at best be only considered seasoned-amateurs. But the movie delivers on all fronts with a robust script and good direction. Do note though that it is only for the open-minded & not everyone would agree with its culturally forward ideas.
It is so unfortunate that good releases like these go unnoticed while a few Superstar duds grab all the attention. I sincerely hope that unlike the great Malayalam movies of yesteryear that were neglected for being ahead of their time, this one is not ignored at the box office.
Whether you agree with the theme of the movie or not, you'll find it impossible to walk out of the theater without an opinion.
