My all time favorite from Mollywood
6 March 2015 | by mspradeesh786See all my reviews

A classic like "Troy".History re-enacted. Mohanlal my favorite actor's release "Kireedam" was pitted against this movie in national awards. There is a good reason for this movie to have won national accolades. The script,screenplay,the choice of actors and direction makes this movie stand apart. The role of Mammootty and Suresh Gopi reminded me of Mahabharata...a replica of Arjuna and Karna.The movie also delves into the psyche of women who use men to further their desires through vile intentions. Songs in the movie still sooth our souls. Till such time, I was never a fan of Mammootty, this movie changed my outlook towards this versatile actor. Nice to have both Mammootty and Mohanlal still ruling the roost with "Munnari Yupe" and "Drishyam".
