Review
Sujith Vasudevv’s debutant flick have been a slight different in its style of narration and making especially for mollywood movie viewers.
On the technicle side, the making and cinematography seems really nice with lot of beautiful visuals and nice background score. But the screenplay lags a lot in many occasions especially on latter half. Gopi Sundar have done a very good job in scoring the movie and also the songs were really nice. Editing were also ok.
On to the perfomance, prithviraj as usual were stunning with his new look and also really good with his character. Vedhika performance were really matured enough and apt for the character.
saikumar done a small but important role. Kishor sathya, Sunil sugada and Sudheer Karamana also supported well.
there is a surprise entry of an actress in last scene and let it be secret till you watch.

The maker had been tried to give away a message that in real life we wont be getting a second chance, so let us move our egos and live happily in this world with our dears once.

First half deals with how the young couple lives thier family life and thier problems followed by A shocking intervel and an emotional latter half with a peaceful ending. if the movie could have been ended littile bit earlier it could have been better.

 

Bottom Line: if all those lag in the screenplay had removed, this one would have been a superb movie.

 Pros

  • As always Prithviraj was superb.
  • Direction and Cinematography
  • Music

Cons

  • Some lag in the plot.

Verdict: A Feel-Good Romantic Family Entertainer.

Recommendation: Worth Watching with Family for this Festive Vacation Time.

Thirdshows Rating: 3/5.
