The Best Indian movie of 2012
30 June 2012 | by moviebuffzSee all my reviews

This movie has absolutely everything you could want..

engaging story, outstanding performances, and entertaining in every aspect. It has humor, sadness and drama, at the appropriate times, and performances without fault

I like fairy tales, and this movie certainly is one. very first Rate Entertainment

I had much expectations about this film where the director made 3 blockbusters and writer anjali menon is very very promising with her debut "Manjadikkuru" .. and the movie made my mind happy .it was a life time experience watching it on theater. This movie shows human relations very well.

Dulquar Salmaan shows he is a star with his cool dude attitude .. excellent way of narrating and well crafted scripting .. the best parts are the background score by Gopi sundar and cinematography by lokanathan.

I suggest everyone to watch this one .. Kudos to Anwar Rasheed the director and anjali menon .. a great step in malayalam cinema to the world .. brilliantly done ..

I would give 10 on 10 fro Usthad Hotel !
