Star Performance

Praveena and Siddique play the couple. Versatile actress Praveena comes in a guest role and she doesn't even have a dialogue. Thilakan, Dulquer Salmaan and Nithya Menen had done their roles perfectly. Minute expressions are the specialties of Dulquer and Nithya and they did it flawlessly.


Anjali Menon had brought a well-scripted story. Anwar Rasheed had narrated it neatly. The initial scenes are a bit slow and later the film starts picking up its pace. The casting team should be appreciated for picking out the best stars. The Chemistry between Nithya Menen and Dulquer is excellent. As it is a message and performance oriented script, there are no commercial elements and hence it might not attract all the audiences.

What's There?

  • Excellent casting
  • Beautiful performances of the stars
  • Proper narration by Anwar

What's Not There?

  • The film has no commercial elements to entertain the general audiences
  • It is a bit slow paced in the beginning


With the excellent performance of the stars, the movie is definitely watchable once. But if you are a commercial movie lover, then this film will never suit you!
