Story:
A regular formula film, the story is set on the backdrop of the Kerala- Karnataka border and here lies a village Chattambinaadu. This has a story of two powerful families fighting from many years. On one hand, there is Mallanchira Chandramohan (manoj) and on the other hand, there is Kattapilli Nagendran ( Siddhique) both sworn enemies. The story takes a turn with the arrival of Veerendra Mallya ( Mammootty) from across the border. He is known to be a rich man but with a strong criminal background. He wants to buy the mansion owned by Mallanchira and apparently, he has a concrete objective for his visit and a mission. He is ably supported by his henchman Murugan (vinu Mohan). What happens from there forms the rest of the story.

Presentation:
The director has come up with a typical commercial formula and both the direction and narrative are on the same plane. The dialogues were interesting at few places, the script was regular and the screenplay was effective. Background score was not that great and even the songs were just okay. Cinematography was fine. Costumes were natural and the art department was rich. Editing was poor on this one. Manoj Jayan gave a standard performance and so did Siddhique. They are experienced in such roles. Vinu Mohan gave a good act. Lakshmi Rai looks luscious as usual while Mythili did her bit. The humor was provided by Salim and Suraj, it was justified. The real showstealer was none other than Mammootty himself who didn't have depth in his character but it was due to his handsome looks and exemplary performance that scored the brownie points. The others need no mention here.

Conclusion:
The film has followed the routine path of two big families at loggerheads and how a protagonist enters to make peace. However, a lot rested on the narrative as well as the performances. While the first half looks gripping with some sequences, after sometime, the grip goes down and by the time second half arrives, the audience knows what is in store. There is not much for those who are looking for quality and content but the ardent fans of Mammootty would like him for sure. Overall, it is an average treat with sound commercial values.

Bharatstudent Verdict: Typical Mammootty treat, his fans will like it
