Plot


Dileep is a bundle of energy and grabs every opportunity to make a beneficial living. He leaves no stone unturned in turning his life into a spirited one and his “partners in crime“ help him in this “mission”. In the meantime, his marriage to Mamtha only ends up in hampering his life; the two don’t vibe well with each other. Well, what happens next? Just book the tickets to your favorite theatre!

Analysis

Dileep has been in the industry for a long time, and there is no doubt that it’s his talent that has made him sustain in this industry. He has a mass appeal that is endearing, and it is vivid that Shafi (with whom Dileep had collaborated in successful films), the director, has banked on his strengths in this film. If you analyze the movie with a telescope, then the flaws would be visible but never mind since the movie has other promising, entertaining factors. There is a good deal of situational comedy that will appeal to the audience. 

Star Performances 

How many times we have seen Dileep portraying the role of a man marooned with problems? How many times we have seen him braving such odds? And in this film too Dileep emerges a winner. As for Mamta, she has understood the subtlety of her character and has done a wonderful job. And what a treat to watch her in comedy roles too! Aju and Suraj Venjaramoodu have given the able support to Dileep. Jagadish, Mukesh, and Asokan do what is required of them.

What’s there?

 

  • The chemistry between Dileep and Mamta Mohandas is appealing.
  • There are several scenes where you can laugh heartily. 
  • The film has all the winning elements of a typical Dileep film. 
  • The BGM of Gopi Sunder gels with the tempo of the movie. 
  • Shafi’s screenplay is good. 
  • Both the first and second half are narrated well. 

What’s not there?

Sometimes we tend to feel that Dileep has overdone his role. 

Verdict

Though the movie has nothing innovative, it keeps you hooked to the seat through good execution. And that’s where the success of the film lies.
