Worth Revisiting? Oh, Kunchacko Boban, you and I don't have a very good track record this month, do we? Another example of a film that squanders a lot of terrific talent. I like Kunchacko Boban, I really like Bhavana, but they're both wasted here. There are blink-and-you-miss-them performances from Innocent, Salim Kumar, and Nedumudi Venu. The two special appearances, from Totally Film Casa Favorites Lal and Asif Ali, are both tucked into the film's first five minutes, so that's likely all I'm going to want to see again.
Oh, wait. Unless I decide to do a post on filmi love gurus. There's a little scope for comparison, say, to David Dhawan's Partner. Maybe one day....
