An enthralling movie for family
16 March 2014 | by johnskkunjuSee all my reviews

Another superb Malayalam movie and as usual is truly apart from the regular Indian Cinema. Fantabulous direction of Shanil Muhammed, Rojin Thomas & Rojin Philip which is absolutely flawless and distinctive creativity with a combination of great cinematography by Neil D'Cunha and beautiful locales from our very own God's own Country's Cochin. All the kids have acted extremely well especially Sanoop Santhosh who acted as Ryan Philip. Ryan and the other kids are the best child actors in the country. There is no Indian movie or TV shows in 2013 which can match these kids acting. The other characters like Ryan's parents, Grandpa, the school teacher, Principal, God etc. are all placed well and have been enacted well too. Kudos to Shanil Muhammed and Rojin Thomas for having written such a wonderful story on child innocence and actual life and how to counter the same with a smile is not only appealing to kids and adults alike but also with such good morales for the growing kids to learn and use in their day to day life like respecting and loving the Teachers and simple deeds which can have immense impact.

The music by Rahul Subrahmaniam is also excellent with some good songs apt for the movie which can compel the audience into tears.

Prejish Prakash edited the movie very well keeping it to the point with each moment of the movie absolutely captivating.
