A classic
1 February 2010 | by aswin-vnSee all my reviews

One thing I am damn sure is,there has never been a film like this one and there won't be any like this in future, it is a unique masterpiece.all praises to Renjith and Mammotty.I think this is both of their bloody best till date. I am not a Mammotty fan.But I loved him in this one.He is exceptional as villain and his powerful looks gives the extra perfection for the film.60% chance for him to win 2009 national award. Real kudos to Renjith because the script is the best I have ever experienced in a Malayalam film.this will be a directorial milestone for him.90% chance for him to win all the awards that this film would compete in. A special mention should be given to the dailogues as they were natural,powerful and really good. Miss anything,but not this film.
