Cast & Performances
Mammootty is just brilliant as C.I. Rajan Zachariah, a police officer with negative shades. He stole the show with the exceptional dialogue delivery and electrifying screen presence.
Varalaxmi Sarathkumar makes a grand debut as Kamala, the lady don and is the perfect choice for the powerful role. Jagadish and Siddique, who appear as SI Mukundan and IG Chandrashekhar respectively, deserve special mentions.
The rest of the star cast, including Sampath Raj, Neha Saxena, Maqbool Salmaan, Alencier, Shaheeh Siddique, etc. have also played their parts effectively.
Script & Direction
Nithin Renji Panicker makes a decent directorial debut with the movie. The young film-maker has completely succeeded in delivering a perfect treat for the Mammootty fans, as well as the mass movie lovers.
The major highlights of the movie are the remarkable one-liners. But, the overtone of vulgarity in the dialogues could have avoided, as they may disappoint the audiences who prefer to watch the movie with families.
Sameer Haq's extraordinary visualisation creates the most suitable backdrop for the racy mass entertainer. Mansoor Muthutty's editing is also up to the marks. Sameera Saneesh scores again with her perfect costumes.
Rahul Raj's background score is the backbone of the movie, as it creates the perfect mood for the mass nature of the movie. The only song of the movie, Ayyayyo is easily forgettable.
A complete Mammootty show which will definitely satisfy the mass movie audiences.
