Taking inspirations from other language films especially by Hollywood flicks are not new to Indian filmmakers. Director Saji Surendran too got inspired by the Hollywood film Bucket List, where four friends, all of whom suffer from cancer but want to lead their remaining life happily by going to places and enjoy their life. He has developed his own version in which Kamal Hassan has done cameo.
Roy (Jayaram), Surya (Kunchacko Boban), Amir (Jayasurya) and Gowri (Meera Jasmine) join a cancer institute called Pratheeksha run by Dr Nandakumar (Ganesh) as patients to undergo treatment. However, they don’t want to depress instead try to find ways to live their remaining life happily. In the process, all the four become thick friends. Soon, they decide to visit places of interest among them and select Malaysia where Surya’s girlfriend lives. In fact, it is the words of Kamal Hassan that inspire them from falling into depression.
He talks about cancer and quotes the names of Satyan, Srividya and the latest Gowthami, who escaped from the jaws of death. Dialogues penned for his character were quite good. The four frends enjoy the balance life without any depression and what happens to their lives have to be seen in the climax.
