They have done it again!
21 May 2019 | by harelivesSee all my reviews

Me being a Sri Lankan and yet who is in love with Malayalam cinema is due to movies like this. Plot, Acting, Music, Direction... What ever the category, this movie perfects them all.

I've seen Joju before but not like this. He catches every moment perfectly.

Among the reasons I love this cinema is how each character is crafted and handled carefully. And here there's no exception. Cast supports it perfectly. Specially Dileesh. Love him always.

And then the voice of Yesudas. Every time it's giving a shocking vibrance all together.

Yes. Malayalis have done it again.
