ah, you have more patience than I with films that are derivative or have blinking neon signs around the foreshadowing or just plain plod towards an ending even an idiot savant could avoid. My personal peeve is when the first 15 minutes have backstory exposition in stilted 'casual conversation'. "How is your son, who lost his legs in that car accident 4 years ago. No you mustn't blame yourself just because you had been drinking to celebrate the news of your wife's promotion. Too bad she died too. Hmm, care for a drink? Whiskey isn't it? I have a bottle of that scottish single malt you introduced me to back when we were in university together, full of such promise and, is that the sound of a flash back I hear?..." etc etc etc...

Still those are pretty nifty clocks...and no doubt the film paid a few months rent for the cast, so I guess it isn't a complete loss.



To be honest, Moe, if this had been a Hindi film, I wouldn't have bothered to take the time to write it up. But I have this wee idea that I'd like to work towards having a kind of body of write-ups of Malayalam films here on the blog, so decided it was worth making the effort. Fortunately, films like this one are few and far between.
