It is to be noted that the TV Set is from Dubai and it is sent by Usman, the would-be husband of Suhra. However Suhra – Basheer love is nurtured by Suhra’s granny. What happens next? Whom did Suhra marry, Usman or Basheer? Watch the film in theaters.

Star Performances

Sheela plays the granny of Sana Althaf. The veteran has emoted well and done her part without any flaws. Farhaan has improvised his performance in his second film. Sana Althaf should improve her dialogue delivery. Madhu plays the grandpa of Sana and he has pulled his role well, as usual. Manikandan Achari had performed excellently well.


The script and the screenplay are good. At the same time, the dialogues in some places seem to be a bit dramatic. For such a casual story, the dialogues are the big plus. But, Aneesh didn’t concentrate much on the dialogues. If he had concentrated in dialogues, then the film might have been much crisper.

What’s There?

  • Madhu, Sheela and Manikandan impress the audiences
  • Vishnu Mohan Sithara’s music and Sanjay Harris’ cinematography are the biggest pluses in the film.

What’s Not There?

  • Farhaan’s romantic expressions doesn’t impress
  • No combination scenes for the veteran pair Madhu and Sheela, which is disappointing
  • Second half is boring, as the director tried out some unwanted comedy sequence


Basheerinte Premalekhanam tries to bring out some nostalgic moments, but it fails to make it except in a few scenes. The script and the screenplay impress but not the movie. However, we could not conclude that it is a bad film. It could be watched once!
