Story: –The movie revolves around a visually challenged person named Jayaram (Mohanlal)  who works as a lift operator in an apartment. Though he is blind,  he has the great ability to recognize people just by listening to them. Meanwhile, a retired judge Krishna Moorthy (Nedumudi Venu), who resides in the same apartment, believes in Jayram and shares all his secrets with him. Unexpectedly, Krishna Moorthy is killed by a serial killer called Vasu (Samuthirakani). Who is Vasu and why did he kill Krishna Moorthy?  Who are Sree Devi (Vimala Raman), Ganga (Anu Shree) and Nandini (Baby Meenakshi) and how they are related to Jayaram from the rest of the story?

Perfomance:  Mohanlal, the complete actor, is impeccable in this character.  He is one of the major highlights of the movie. He gives an impressive performance as a visually challenged man and carries the entire movie on his shoulders without dropping the intensity in his character. Vimala Raman is adequate. Baby Meenakshi excelled in her role.  Remaining characters gave their best.

Analysis: The complete credit should go to director for showcasing Mohan Lal in such a stunning way. Right from the first scene, the director has done a very clever job.  Though the story is simple and has nothing new to offer, the director succeeded in running the movie with a gripping screenplay. The first half of the movie passes on with some interesting moments and interval part elevates the movie. The second half continues the flow of first half with some engaging mind game episodes between the hero and villain.The twist in the climax has been handled in an excellent way. Though first have has few boring scenes,  second half has been handled in a perfect engaging way. But, on flip side the pre-climax scenes look a bit stretched. Even though the runtime of the movie is similar to that of regular movies, we feel as if we are watching a long duration movie. Editing could have been better in first half. Director Priyadarshan, who has nationwide reputation as a good filmmaker has lived up his expectations and his screenplay is top notch. Govind Vijayan’s story is good. Background score composed by Ron Ethan Yohaan brought life to the film.  Production values of the movie are good.
