A must watch movie for all.
20 April 2017 | by anoopkg23See all my reviews

A movie that still holds importance in our current world where people are killed for religious misconceptions. The metaphorical descriptions of our superstitions and ignorance showed in this movie are so excellent that it offers an insight into general human imbecility. The movie is severely underrated in spite of Mohanlal sir's incomparable acting performance.
