Star Performance

Arundathi Nag lived in the character, Rosamma. She had done complete justice to her role. Mohanlal had tried out his best. Rest of the stars had done what is needed from them.

Analysis

Except for the different script, we could expect all the regular elements from Ranjith. His usual dialogues, the way women are handled and all the other things related to it. The director has narrated the present condition of the families and their sentiments. Mohanlal is seen in a new role and we couldn’t say he fits in the role, but couldn’t deny his natural performance too. The production values and the technical values are good.

What’s There?

  • Stunning performance by Arundathi Nag
  • Sentiments of an old woman is beautifully described

What’s Not There?

  • Script and screenplay seems to be half-baked
  • The dialogues are not much impressive

Verdict

Although the film has star performers, with the weak screenplay, they could not make it big. People expect more from Ranjith and Mohanlal combo. Yet, it is a good film to watch, once!
