an average film to watch
18 January 2016 | by shahinavalaSee all my reviews

anoop menon act as a lead role and his performance was great The sequences where Prithviraj enacted diaogues from 'PazhassiRaja' and 'Sagar Alias Jackie' received overwhelming response from the crowd and was presented really well.The storyline is simple and has its share of minor loopholes which doesn't turn hiccups in a smooth experience due to the emotional connect that the movie maintains till the end of the presentation.

Marthandan can take a big sigh of relief after the poorly presented box office dud 'Acha Din' and did a decent job handling the screenplay by Bipin Chandranwithout much faults to point out.This one is certainly his career best flick and much better in comparison with 'Dhaivathinte Swantham Cleetus' which too was a box office success.

The heart of the movie is Prithviraj and he stole the show yet another brilliant performance that upholds his improvement in handling humor and controlled emotional sequences.The ease with which he enacted the drunkard 'Joy' is appreciable and makes the character close to the heart of the viewers.Anoop Menon gave good support to Prithviraj and excelled in the post interval portions in particular.Asha Sarath was impressive.Miya did her part well.Nedumudi Venu,Maniyanpilla Raju,Sunil Sukhadaa etc were adequate.

Songs by Aby Tom Cyriac were 'kickass' and lifted the mood to another level by energetic performance from Prithviraj and the rest of the cast.BGM by Gopi Sunder too was good particularly towards the sentimental sequences.Cuts by John Kutty were smooth and the cinematography by Pradeep Nair was impressive
