The biggest highlight of the film is Siddique’s performance. Debutant shaheer Ali has done a stunning job as a writer and director. He is definitely a good prospect for malayalam film industry. Good screenplay lifted the film to a whole new level. Good editing with a running time of just two hours. DOP was excellent and set the tone of the movie. BGM was also very nice.
On the negative side, the film is slow paced at times.
