The best period movie in Malayalam, so far
14 November 2014 | by jijivsSee all my reviews

I can safely say this one the best period movie in Lalayalam so far, thanks for Amal Neerad, the director for the effort put in. The casting is top, no complaints, superb performance from all. Lal, Fahad, Jayasurya, Jose... all did their part very well. Stunning visuals, the frames will remain in you for days. Again the magic touch of Amal Neerad. The back ground score well sync with the movie. As with most of Amal Neerad movies, the songs are exceptionally well, and photographed superb. Thanks for the new team of music director and singer. The film is already got enough appreciation from critiques and reviewers. Overall an excellent movie experience. I can safely recommend as a must watch.
