mother. Charmila, Joy mathew and Sidhartha Siva does complete
justice to their roles. New comer Santhosh Keezhattoor deserves a

Script and Direction
Iqbal Kuttipuram's script creates a lagin the first half, but
slowly comes back to form in second half. Some irrelavant scenes
and frequent song sequences reveal the weakness of the script in
the first half.
Hit maker Lal Jose has made a perfect recipe for a festival
Jomon T John's cinematography makes the frames look fabulous;
especially in the song sequences. Ranjan Abraham's editing is not
upto expectations as the movie sinks into slow pace
Songs and Background Score
Bijibal made an impact with the song Maanthe
Chandanakeeru; but fails to impress with the other songs. But
he once again proves his excellence in background score, which
completely sinks into the plot of the movie.
In short, Vikramadithyan is a one-time watchable flick. The movie is a complete entertainer for the festival season.
