Simply put, one of the WORLD'S greatest comedies ever made.
26 August 2017 | by Cinema_freakSee all my reviews

I'm trying hard to bring out words to describe this movie. The amount of comic genius put into the writing of the Malayalam comedies of those times is just unparalleled. Everyone in this movie was great. Everyone, ranging from Philomena, to NNP, to Thilakan, Mukesh... all of them all gave their best to make this a laugh riot to remember. Also, Mukesh is a very under-rated actor. He needs to be given more role varieties like in the recent "Jomonte...". One of the greatest comedies ever. But hey, almost all of the great Malayalam comedies of that time count as one of the greatest comedies ever made. Truly, Malayalam cinema from those times was all-encompassing and had a class of it's own.
