Tessa K Abraham (Rima Kallingal), is a young 22 year old woman from Kottayam, working as a nurse at Bangalore. She loves her profession very much, which most of her counterparts considers as a thankless job. Tessa's younger sister Tissa studies at Kochi. In Bangalore Tessa shares her room with two other girls. Among the 2 girls, one shares a relationship with a wealthy married man, DK (Sathar). Meantime, Tessa tries her luck in job abroad and gets in touch with Cyril (Fahad Fazil), who runs a recruiting agency. He promises her a job in Canada within a couple of months. Soon Tessa and Cyril become intimate. The film turns engaging when Cyril has a fight with a guy, who's apparently the son of a powerful politician, so he is forced to hide for a couple of days and an unexpected guest comes into Tessa's life.

You are The Real Girl.....
11 May 2012 | by arunrcmanjeriSee all my reviews

Just one word to say about the movie. Excellent.. Whole crew did an extra ordinary work and that reflects in the final output.

The movie is about a young Malayali Nurse who is trying to go abroad. Her surroundings, the problems she face and all. A great movie with a female lead.

The main positive I felt about the movie is that, each and every single character who came infront of us has their own identity and depth. Well written and superbly directed. Hats off to Abhilash Kumar and Shyam Pushkaran(Writers) and the real hero Aashiq Abu. He really deserves a great applause.


Rima did a great job as the center character. Her acting has been improved a lot. Excellent.

Fahad was superb with his natural way of acting. He really proved his talent and is showing us how much he grew up from his debut movie 'Kayyethum Dhoorathu'. Hats off man..

T.G.Ravi was another surprise in the movie. Small, but a great character. The last scene of him was great and touching.

Pradap Pothan & Sathar. A great come back by the veteran actors. Did a good job with their roles.


*Direction *Script *Character Creation *Rima *Fahad *T.G.Ravi *etc……..


Didn't felt that much negatives or may be the movie didn't give me a chance to think of the negatives.
