Star Performance

Mohanlal is good with his role, as usual. Arbaaz has done an excellent job with good lip-sync. Yet, he should have been used better. Siddique, Honey Rose Mirnaa and Gadha did a good job. The comedy by Vishnu, Irshad and Tini Tom didn’t impress the audience.


The script is new and the execution is good. Although the screenplay is good, there are some slight slides in it. Star selection is good. Yet, the makers could’ve used Arbaaz Khan well. He is a good performer with a different action package. The comedy portions didn’t work out. The runtime is lengthy and the editor and director should have checked it well. The songs and the BGM are impressive.

What’s There?

  • Good star cast, script and execution
  • Performance of the stars is good

What’s Not There?

  • The length of the film should have been trimmed
  • Arbaaz had been underutilized


If the director and editor had adjusted the running time by cutting short some unnecessary scenes in the beginning, then the film would have been impressive. However, it is watchable once!
