Dint understand yet..sorry
29 April 2011 | by hellooosamSee all my reviews

Good one from the crew of Lijo pellissery..must watch movie.Prithviraj has done a very good job keeping his legacy; a legacy which has been in his family for decades now.Along with his brother indrajith who has also done justice to the role.The movie pivots around the strange idea a director got while sleeping and he takes the same shot 2-4 times and uses it in the movie. This is one movie in malayalam that all the reel has been used without loss or waste.Swetha menon has not shown anything like every viewer has expected from her which would have disappointed half her fans.Reema kalingal could hav been replaced.After urumi this is another onefrom the all time superstar to keep up his name. competing with the released movies the city of god has climbed to the second spot with URUMI on top defeating Christian Brothers,China town, Doubles by the aged actors of malayalam industry who continue to struggle.
