Old Wine In a New Bottle with a message
18 August 2008 | by vinu_ks133See all my reviews

I happened to see Pothan Vava in DVD, The movie was good in the sense that It provided a message at the end. Our Hero is the son of father and mother, who are from two different castes namely Hindu and Christian. The story portrays the social dilemma that he has to undergo as a result of this . It is told in a humorous manner with dire consequence at the end. Mammooty is at his best in dialogs delivery and the Christian slang he uses is fantastic. The rest of the character doesn't have much to portray.For Mammooty fans the movie may have several similarities to other roles he has portrayed

The plus point of the movie is the

1.songs 2.movie duration (2 hours) 3.Family viewing 4.Social Message
