Joshi owns a mobile shop and is getting ready for his marriage. His mother wakes him up one day and tells him that someone has parked a truck full of speakers in front of their gate. As none was found in the truck and the entrance to his house was blocked, Joshi filed a complaint with the police. Despite the complaint, the truck still stayed there for a few days. Joshi finds out that it was not speakers but gold bars in the truck. Meanwhile, Unnikrishnan fixes his daughter’s wedding with an affluent family. What’s the connection between him, his daughter Sumangali, Joshi, and the gold truck? The rest of the film deals with it.

Star Performance

Prithviraj’s performance is excellent, as usual. Nayanthara is quite decent in the given role. The rest of the artists did what was required.


The script is different, and the screenplay is unique. But, there is nothing significant to project as an exciting story in the film. Alphonse is famous for his situation comedy. Though it is present in the movie, it doesn’t work out entirely. Though famous artists are placed, not all of them get meaty roles. The BGM is impressive. The cinematography is excellent, and the lighting is fantastic. Alphonse’s editing is neat. The “Neram” and “Premam” lovers expected something different from Alphonse Puthren, but the film didn’t meet their expectations.

What’s There?

  • Good star cast and performances
  • Cinematography and editing are good

What’s Not There?

  • The storyline could’ve been made better
  • The comedy worked out in parts


Though the film has its pluses and minuses, it will not disappoint you if you don’t expect much. Though the film is not close to Premam, it is okay to watch it once!
