As usual Mammootty plays a wonderful drama. Nayanthara looks beautiful and has equal space to present her character. Director Siddique adds so many interesting incidents. That carries the screenplay throughout the film. Cinematography is so good. It's worth to watch the movie in theater.
Comedy department was handled by Harisree Asokan, Kalabhavan Shajon and Saju Navodaya. Among the trio, it was Saju who outshone his more experienced colleagues. Janardhanan as Bhaskar's father supported and made sure his part looked okay on screen. Bollywood actor Chakravarthy made sure he did justice to his billing as an actor of talent.
The movie appealed well visually, thanks to good cinematography. Edits were nice. Background score and music is by Deepak Dev and they were good.
