Mathai is an innocent good-hearted auto driver who hails from
Thrissur. He has a tendency to interfere in other people's life
knowingly or unknowingly. He intents to help people; but usually
gets into trouble. His fiance (Bhama) is a nurse.
Mathai enters the lives of Dr Nandakumar (Mukesh) and his wife
Geetha (Lakshmi Gopalaswamy), thus toppling their family life
upside down. This leads to some hilarious incidents and this forms
the crux of the story.
Cast And Performance
Jayasurya shines as Mathai and increases the comical quotient of
the movie with his Thrissur dialect and impeccable comic timing.
Mukesh, who plays Dr Nandakumar strikes again with his humour sense
and acting skills. Bhama, who plays Mathai's fiance, show great
improvements in her acting skills and looks completely fit for the
role. Lakshmi Gopalaswamy, who essays Nandakumar's wife Geetha
performs her role to near perfection.
Sreejith Ravi, who portrays a dance master, deserves a special
applause for his amazing performance. Rest of the cast did complete
justice to their respective roles.
Script And Direction
Main flaw of the movie is a not-so-engaging script written by
director Akku Akbar, which has nothing new to convey. The
repetitive theme is narrated with small improvisations in the
movie. But the director succeeds in bringing the best out of the
actors. The performance of the lead actors is the saving grace of
Pradeep Nair's cinematography is above average. Lijo Paul's
editing is not upto standards, as the movie fails to engage the
audience at certain points.
Music and Background Score
Anand Madhusoodanan's background score is impressive; but the
songs are just average.
An age old theme; watch it for the performances of actors.
