Cast And Performance
Jayasurya shines as Mathai and increases the comical quotient of the movie with his Thrissur dialect and impeccable comic timing. Mukesh, who plays Dr Nandakumar strikes again with his humour sense and acting skills. Bhama, who plays Mathai's fiance, show great improvements in her acting skills and looks completely fit for the role. Lakshmi Gopalaswamy, who essays Nandakumar's wife Geetha performs her role to near perfection.
Sreejith Ravi, who portrays a dance master, deserves a special applause for his amazing performance. Rest of the cast did complete justice to their respective roles.
Script And Direction
Main flaw of the movie is a not-so-engaging script written by director Akku Akbar, which has nothing new to convey. The repetitive theme is narrated with small improvisations in the movie. But the director succeeds in bringing the best out of the actors. The performance of the lead actors is the saving grace of the movie.
Pradeep Nair's cinematography is above average. Lijo Paul's editing is not upto standards, as the movie fails to engage the audience at certain points.
Music and Background Score
Anand Madhusoodanan's background score is impressive; but the songs are just average.
An age old theme; watch it for the performances of actors.
