Excellent
16 July 2012 | by roisroySee all my reviews

Ustad Hotel is a real treat for eyes, which keeps us engaged and makes our taste-buds come alive.

The pluses include well crafted story line, with simplicity to the core, excellent background score and music, breathtaking visuals, and moreover, it brings out a valuable message.

Dulquar has done a good job, and Thilakan stands out as Kareemikka, and kudos all the cast and crew members for giving such a wonderful experience.

Overall I rate this as must watch and request Dileep and other mimicry artists to stop degrading Malayalam movies with films like Mayamohini, Pachakuthira etc, as this surely is the re-birth of Malayalam movie with a cry for quality and lasting content.

Thanks.
