Jayakrishnan is a talented mechanic waiting for an opportunity to go up. He gets a land deal. The landowner was in need of urgent funds for his daughter’s wedding. Unable to raise funds, Jayakrishnan had to bear the responsibility. What is Jayakrishnan’s next plan? Will he make the deal okay and help the landowner? The rest of the film deals with it.

Star Performance

Unni Mukundan has stepped in the shoes of Jayakrishnan and impressed the audience. His expressions are fantastic and mind-blowing. Anju is good in her role. Saiju Kurup and Aju Varghese did their jobs perfectly. The rest of the stars are good in the given roles.


The story is not new, but the execution is. The film starts at a slow pace, and the characters are introduced at regular intervals with proper explanations. Unni Mukundan has chosen a perfect script to feed his acting skill and succeeded in it. Though many stars appear in minor roles, they have done an admirable job. The visuals are excellent, and the editing is perfect. The BGM is not much impressive and a bit louder.

What’s There?

  • The script and execution are excellent
  • The performances of the lead stars are fantastic
  • The visuals are impressive

What’s Not There?

  • The BGM is not much impressive
  • A few loopholes towards the end


Meppadiyan showcases the acting talent of Unni Mukundan and the directorial skills of Vishnu Mohan. Unni Mukundan has succeeded as a good actor and producer with this script. Meppadiyan – watch-worthy!
