Munnariyippu is a must watch for movie lovers. For fans it’s a chance to see their favorite star in an entirely different avatar.
On the flipside the movie takes its time to enter into the core element of the movie (in climax) and this may lead to some slow down in the second half for the normal audience, and the climax could have been explained a bit more so that the majority of the audience could have got well with it. Overall it’s not a great movie or a masterpiece, but a very good movie with some brilliant performances and relevant issues. Watch it.
