Alternate Versions

In the UK, the distributors were forced to edit the film to remove a scene of cockfighting as it was considered to breach the requirements of the Cinematograph Films (Animals) Act 1937. Furthermore the distributors decided to make further changes to the film in order to lower the rating from '15' to '12A'. These additional changes removed detail of a blade embedded in man's head, accompanied by blood spurt, and a bloody bullet impact to chest. See more »

This is nothing more than a potboiler
18 November 2016 | by raveenairSee all my reviews

One of the worst hyped-up Malayalam movies I've ever seen.The story line is incredible, the script is way below average and the performance is better left undefined. It's a case of a talented actor going over the hill and that the movie has already been such a super hit says how gullible we are as consumers and how our cinematic taste has reached a nadir. Not going into technical superiority since this is what money can buy these days. The movie is poor in terms of creative thought, cohesive screenplay and most unfortunately the incapability to separate a character from a marquee actor. The director had come up with some reasonably good movies but seems to have cowered before the myth that cinema revolves round a salable hero.
