Star Performance

Mammootty is excellent in his role as usual. This film has brought him an excellent opportunity once again to showcase his acting talent. Mammookka had to express almost all the emotions and he had done it perfectly. Athulya, Vanditha, Mukesh, Manoj K Jayan and Maniyanpilla Raju have done their best.


The director should be appreciated for his simple yet different script. He didn’t take much time to introduce the characters and the film started moving towards the story straight away. Mammookka’s role is well designed to emote all the feelings. However, some of the scenes seem to be dramatic. The script is a bit slow, but the director didn’t add any commercial elements to spoil the track.

What’s There?

  • Script and direction are good
  • Performances of the stars are impressive

What’s Not There?

  • The screenplay is a bit slow


The film is good to watch, as it has a good story and excellent performers. Although it is a bit slow, Ganagandharvan proves that he is a performing Gandharvan!
