Poignant!
23 May 2013 | by rtoac1See all my reviews

Poignant is the right word to describe this movie. From one view one might think it is slow, but every moment is loaded with the haunt of what could happen next.

Simple storyline: A man shows up at a village with the intent to kill the thief who stole his savings and killed his wife.

Hats off to Mohanlal and Salim Ghouse for their excellent performances.

It's surprising when you look back, there are not many characters in the film. Shankararadi does well, and Sumalatha adds the beauty quotient.

Another unique point is that the main plot does not cover a large time- span. Instead relies on timely flashbacks to tie up the loose ends.

The movie is a showcase of the director Bharathan's genius.

A truly unique film in Malayalam cinema. True, it takes inspiration from the Western genre. Never before nor after has one such been attempted!

The ending is especially commendable. No sentimental gimmicks!

Truly a must-watch!
