Best love story in Malayalam
10 June 2019 | by cool_andhotSee all my reviews

Watched the movie long back, but felt the need of writing the review after seeing a song on TV today as Appu and Mathan are still a painful memory. The best part of the movie is its dialogues. Tovino and Aishwarya delivered it with ease and emotion. I can still hear "Onnu poyitharuo maatha" ( Will you just leave, maatha ). Thank you Ashique Abu for making it.
