Just came home after the second show at sangeeth theatre, bangalore. Believe me, at the end while dispersing, not even a singe voice praised the movie. I could see most of them were sleeping during the movie. This is not exaggeration. I wont suggest this movie except maybe if you are going with kids and spouse and parents, it's a fair time pass. Even though its definitely not a new subject, the intention behind this movie was a good one. But srinivasan couldn't convert it to something which could convince the audience. The first twist just before the interval was unexpected (i dont want to mention what it is) and that was the only good thing in this movie. Most of the people woke up from their sleep by that scene. But later on it followed an array of twists which will definitely make everybody feel bored and sleepy. They were very immature thinking which could only occur in a child's dreams. I expected a lot from srinivasan, both as an actor as well as a writer. But this is a disappointment as well as a disaster
People like Lal should learn from an Actor like Kamal who is going strong even after 50 years in cinema .Kamal is doing even better and better movies with age . Mohan lal appears a jaded and he seems to be receding .Not a king any more.

You must be joking about Kamal. Show one movie from Kamal from the last 10 years which is "strong". I am not supporting Lal here and I agree to that fact that he also jaded same as Kamal with lacklustre performances. I guess these guys killed themselves with high confidence...

'Dhasavatharam' is enough to tell about Kamal's skills and consistency. I think you have missed it, try to watch with pure heart. No one can do that flim like that in the whole universe Mr.Sai.

kamal n lal r versatile actors. but nowadays, lal s keen on doin heroic roles which would please his fans. but kamal makes classic movies which attracts his fans to it. but we know wat potentials these legends hav...
Movie rocks... Lalettan.. the legend shows what real acting means... Sreenivasan shows.. how much script contributes.. & finally Rjeev Kumar shows.. what direction means.. Really a nice film made in satire. thnaks for bringing some old golden memmories..

The only place to see this movie is in Poothamkuzhy Sharada. 15 minutes of shakeela and reshma bits are added just before the interval. Super experience. All shows housefull till interval. Then everybody goes home, some stay for 10 minutes to relieve tension

hahahha really funny. side role in prithvi film. new found. so u will tell lal jose film cousins also the same. mohan lal side role in prithvi film. But one thing is there. Mammootty is now a days is far far better than mohan lal these days in acting. Mohan lal does the same expression in all films. he lost his midas touch and classy act. I dotn know wat happened to him. he is not delivering what we really want from him.

very true... if you take 80's and 90's mohanlal was better among the two, atleast in providing hit films. in the last 10 yrs its been mammooty with class movies like kazhcha, loudspeaker, paaleri manikkam, an entertainer like rajamanikkam and many more. the only significant mohanlal movie i can point out is udayananu tharam. others like thanmatra and brahmaram is hyped by lot of ppl but its kind of 50-50 among the audience, but none of them got almost cent percent acceptance like mammooty movies.

moreover mohanlal fans have to accept the fact that his body figure is not suited for heroic roles. That why he is confined only to fatherly roles nowadays like in brahmaram, thanmatra, baalettan. Whenever he tried the other side, the film has flopped very badly like baba kalyani, college kumaran, red chillies and many more... an infinite for loop will be insufficient.
But on the other side mammooty looks still young in his late 30's. and he is doing very well also.
@subith : you forgot another classic - katha parayumbol. the climax scene of this movie cannot be done so perfectly like he did

rajamanikkam was a trend setter cos it was something new. others like chattambinaadu and pokkiri raja, i agree with you.
But my dear friend, i have mentioned some other 3 or 4 films of his which can be treated as pure classic. Atleast 90% of the crowd would have positive rating for those movies. whereas mohanlal movies like brahmaram and all were kind of balanced, in the sense that some people would love it and at the same time same number of people would hate it.
Thouth I don't mean to join the ever growing rhetoric against the ageing superstars.. it's high time Malayalam should find new tenets of growth.. Not the kind by creating one more monster like what the kinds of Prithviraj aspires to be.. We need to have strong film makers, who stand in their feet with fresh ideas.. It's not that they are not there (i heard superstars complaining in a TV talk, about the lack of new talents.. There are plenty of them.. Only thing is that the industry and the commercial set us doesn't help them to flourish. When i saw "Kerala Cafe" a few months back, i was really delighted to see a bunch of fresh talents.. Anwar Rasheed, Anjali Menon, ... etc.. who are really good. But we need a cinema viewing culture and industry that help them to do the films they believe... otherwise you have to dwell in past glory and see Tamil and Hindi getting miles ahead of us... I don't care if this happens with or without superstars... they are very good though, as actors...

first of all you kannadigas and tamilians have to understand that movies is not showing one's non-existing super hero powers. they have some value if properly furnished can make impact on the social mindsets. If you dont understand by what i mean, please watch some malayalam movies.
