Cast And Performance

The character Meera is a great turning point in Honey Rose's career. The actress completely sheds her bold image and excels in the role of a loving wife and mother.

Script And Performance
Aneesh Anwar himself pens the script for the movie. The director-writer has managed well to depict the elements of an emotional thriller with much perfection.
Some major defects of the movie are the excessive duration and slow pace in the second half. Despite such small defects, the movie still maintains to stand out with the exceptional theme and perfect narrative style.
Cinematography handled by Alby is can't get more perfect, as it creates a best ambiance for an emotional thriller. Editing by Renjith is not up to the mark, as the movie falls into the low pace at certain portions.
