"Super-Natural"
12 May 2016 | by tonysabu33See all my reviews

It is a 'Super' film with the amazing acting from Fahad Fasil, Aparna, Soubhin, Alancier, Jaffer Idukki and Antony Kochi.

It is also a 'Natural' film with the amazing nature of 'Idukki'.

*After watching this film, I decided to go to meet my relatives in Idukki when I get to Kerala. Especially, the slang and language in Idukki is beautifully used in this film.

And the song 'Idukki' with lines, Ividuthe Kaattanu kaattu.... is very nostalgic. No words to express my feelings about this film. I'll surely suggest this film to anyone who love Malayalam Cinema.

Simply, "Beautiful".
