Felt like a shitty Suresh Gopi movie.
9 October 2012 | by Robin BabySee all my reviews

After hearing of all the hype about this movie, I finally watched it with my friends and the result was pretty disappointing. There is no denying the fact that Mohanlal has done a pretty good role in this movie. It is good to see our Lalettan in a realistic role without punch dialogues and heavy action. The first half of the movie was pretty impressive. But the second half was a serious let down and the climax a disaster. Don't trust these critics who claim this to be a brilliant movie. The director attempted to make it a brilliant one but the effort didn't pay off. I couldn't find anything brilliant in this movie. In fact, I found plenty of stupid things which deteriorated the experience (like the real villain suiting up as a priest to make use of Babu Antony). The identity of the villain is predictable for those people who have seen a lot of suspense thriller English movies. And the villain overdid it in the final scenes. Overall there is nothing new in this movie other than seeing Mohanlal in a pretty good role. Might entertain hardcore Mohanlal fans.
