Don't be fooled
17 September 2010 | by See all my reviews

Please, don't be fooled by the pathetic vote given by the users. The film is the exact opposite of that. Look, the film is about a lonely man trying to rescue a deaf and dumb child from the clutches of two killers. If you have seen the film, Mercury Rising by Bruce Willis and liked it, you will certainly like this one too. Mammootty gives a fantastic performance. The emotional attachment between the character played by Mammootty and the child is heartwarming. Suresh Gopi and Babu Antony as the killers also do justice. Suresh Gopi in his 'Non-superstar' role is brilliant. And the direction is also good. The movie is a thriller and you will be thrilled, no doubt. And nothing else, just watch it.
