Mamachan (Biju Menon) is a bachelor politician in his early 40s. Unlike his father, who was a pure Gandhian, Mamachan is a new generation politician, who is extremely cunning. He always makes sure that he stays in the limelight in any situation. He is the one who mixes politics with family life and always gets into troubles.
The major issue in Mamchan's life is his bachelorhood. He is desperate to get married and searching for a suitable bride. After a series of incidents, Mamachan falls in love with Lisa (Nikki Galrani), who is much younger than him. He tries to win her heart in so many ways and gets into some unexpected situations. This forms the rest of the story.
Cast and Performance
Biju Menon perfectly plays Mamachan and excels in the role with his amazing comic timing and the Kanjirapally dialect he uses in the movie. The role is a break for the actor, who is getting stereotyped with the supporting roles. Aju Varghese makes a perfect comic pair for Biju Menon and did a good job.
Nikki Galrani doesn't have much to do in the film. Asif Ali's cameo appearence deserves a special mention. The other actors including KPAC Lalitha, Lena, Tini Tom, Kalabhavan Shajon, Siddique, Sunil Sukhada and Sasi Kalinga played their parts to near perfection.
Script and Direction
Joji Thomas's script is light and engaging. The movie revolves around a simple plot with ample fun factor; thus makes the film worth to watch.
Debutante director Jibu Joseph has done a good job by bringing out the perfect performance from the actors.
Vishnu Narayan's cinematography manages to maintain the simplicity and enhance the beauty of the simple plot. Editing by Sooraj is fine.
Songs and Background Score
Bijibal did a good job with background score. The title song is good while the other songs are just fine.
An average entertainer.
