Mythrimangalam has got a couple who are dedicated teachers. They have a son and a daughter named Vivek and Veena respectively. Vivek joins college and gets some friends there. He demands his parents get him a bike, but they deny. This didn’t go well with him and he disobeys his parents. As his conduct turns bad, it is his parents, who are embarrassed in front of others. Did he feel ashamed for his behavior? Watch the film in theaters!

Star Performance

Mohammed Althaf, the newcomer is okayish in his role. Shanthi Krishna is excellent in her role as a teacher and a mother. Joy Mathew, Lalu Alex and Subi Suresh have done a good job. Kailash needs a special mention too.


Although the script is good, it is very much predictable. There are a lot of films of this genre releasing frequently and hence this didn’t create a significant impact. Although the scenes are predictable, some films offer good visual experience. But, it is missing here. The BGM is not much impressive too. The cast selection is impressive. The director could have tried a different subject for his debut.

What’s There?

  • Performances of the stars are good
  • Message for the parents and children

What’s Not There?

  • Predictable scenes
  • Forcedly inserted songs
  • The film is technically weak


Although the subject is good and the performances are good, with the highly predictable screenplay and weak cinematography and music, the film didn’t impress the audiences much.
