The movie begins with Prithviraj's voice over. The American recession creates a huge impact in the Gulf countries; thus turning the lives of businessmen Kuruvila Mathew (Atul Kulkarni) and Raghu upside down. Then introduces Anantharaman (Anoop Menon), a journalist, John David (Mohanlal), an animator and their respective families, who meet up during a train journey. The movie takes a different turn when John and Anathan expolres their interconnected pasts. What happens next forms the rest of the plot.

Mohanlal is just outstanding as John David, a man with the shades of romance, humour, and negative elements. Anoop Menon has perfectly played Anantharaman and shares a great camaraderie with Mohanlal. Atul Kulkarni is exceptional as the antagonist; but didn't has much scope to perform. Honey Rose and Sheelu Abraham are just okay in their minimal roles.

An average crime-revenge thriller for a one-time watch.
