Excellent Movie
14 January 2007 | by dineshvasudevan2003See all my reviews

This one of the best entertaining movies that Malayalam cinema has ever seen. Mohanlal plays the Ooty guide who gets to meet Revathy who plays a mentally abnormal girl and Jagathy plays Mohanlal's Close mate. The comedy scenes and the on screen chemistry between Jagathy and Mohanlal just blows off the audiences and they just laugh out loud. I have personally watched this movie more than 20 times and every time it keeps getting better and better. The twist in the movie is also provided when a secret about Revathy is revealed to Mohanlal and Thilakan is made to play a pivotal role. Innocent as the sentimental butler showcases an excellent ambiance. The movie is a real stress releaser and is rated as one of the best.
