Not so grand
3 September 2012 | by J JSee all my reviews

The theme of this movie, an intelligent good character and an intelligent bad character, tried and tested formula. the movie failed to impress the intelligent audience. that translated to its average performance. As a movie lover this movie reminded me, my old time favorite, Assassins, by Stallone and Antonio Banderas. Also the branding, reminded the 'Glorious' Bastards.

About the casting, MohanLal secured his job as usual. rest of the characters are supporting as usual. Anoop Menon too did a good job. I think the first time I see them both together.

Overall The movie has nothing new to tell. 4/10
