One of the "must see" movies.
3 June 2006 | by mathew0071See all my reviews

This is the first time I am writing a commentary and only because I haven't seen any other comments. This is one of the BEST movies by Mohanlal. The casting is excellent, the acting is superb, and the music is extraordinary.

The story is gripping from the start: It contains a blend of comedy, sadness, and fighting. The best part of the movie is the music duel between Mohanlal and Kaithapram (one of the greatest musicians from India). It is 8 minutes long and by the end, you will have tears in your eyes because of the songs beauty and exquisiteness.

I don't want to give away any part of the story as it is worth watching. Each actor contributes his best to the movie and made it a hit in theaters.

I hope you watch it soon and enjoy acting and singing as it was meant to be. :)
