Malayalees seem to be losing their taste for good cinema.
29 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

For I have no idea whatsoever, as to how this trash could rake up 100 crores in Kerala and garner an 8.0 on IMDb. You could see a random Balakrishna/Pawan Kalyan Telugu film and still feel the same that you felt after watching this movie. There isn't even some genuine humour which would put a smile on your face. Mohanlal along with Peter Hein and all the other stunts-men have to be given credit for their efforts though. Also deserving of credit were the animators who did a pretty decent job, considering their limited budget, because believe me, animation is a very demanding job. But when it comes to acting - well, the stalwarts like Mohanlal, Lal and Siddique didn't have much to do here. Jagapathi Babu as "Daddy Girija" was wooden and boring, while Kamalini Mukherjee as the wife was over-acting perfection. Makrand Deshpande seems to have found a new means of living by playing caricatured bad-guy roles in Malayalam cinema. It extremely saddens me to see this pathetic excuse for a movie getting rave reviews and BO collections. There are much more deserving movies out there. 2 stars for the beautiful locale and the efforts of the stunts-men and animators, because this movie, as a whole, holds no merit of its own.
