I have cried every time i have seen this movie
12 May 2013 | by jamesjoseph2770See all my reviews

One of the best ever movies in Malayalam(Indian cinema actually).. Brilliant acting by Mohanlal(He is India's best ever actor).... It deals with the relationship between a brother and his very young sister.. This sister is born at a time when Mohanlal is already ready for marriage and his mother dies during childbirth.. Mohanlal forgoes his love life and marriage plans as his dad also deserts him and decides to take care of his young sister's upbringing... But as she grows big she goes to a city for college studies and soon the city culture gets embedded inside her.. Her aunt(Mohanlal's brother's wife) who had not even cared for her when she was young now becomes close her and is a big reason for this change.. Mohanlal becomes very sad and depressed on the changes which the city life brings upon his sister.. The climax will definitely leave you crying!!!!!!!!!!! He sacrifices everything for his sister and in the end loses her.. She does realize all her mistakes and comes back to him at the end.. But by that time Mohanlal has become mentally unstable and doesn't even recognize her..... 10/10....
