Expectations were huge considering this has Lalettan in his 'twirled mustache ' avatar. Eventhough Major Ravi's last film 'Kandahar' was a disaster at Box Office i really liked the film and think it didn't get its due. The Trailer and BG also added to the expectations


Is an action thriller that focuses on  trafficking of young girls. Madhava Menon a.k.a. Mad Maddy (Mohanlal) is an encounter specialist in Maharashtra Police who is in charge of a case which leads him to Kerala. This time the mission gets personal and Maddy is on a prowl to knab the culprits.


The film was planned in a smaller scale with Suresh Gopi supposed to do the lead role, but then don't know why he changed his mind and rewrote it  with Lalettan. 2 years after a disaster Kandahar, looks like Major Ravi is repeating it with another half baked film.

The movie was promoted as an action thriller with lots of punch lines and a great script. Sadly Major failed to deliver. The script is half baked, the direction is bad. The story idea was good but Major couldn't deliver a complete product.

But the movie not unwatchable either, Mohanlal is in full-on rocking form and fans can watch it once for him. There is a very good message which Major tried to convey through the film. The emotional content is also good. So family audience can also give it a try. If the emotion connects with the audience it may work (but chances are less). And for others Major Ravi's inspid direction and writing has given to not like the movie.

The supporting cast was good, everyone did their job well. Camera and BG was good.[Sad that they didnt use the theme song anywhere in the movie]. Editing was so-so

Watch it once for Mohanlal & the good, relevant message that it carry

Fans 2.75/5
 Others, a Generous 2.5/5

Box Office: Average or above (may be)

Hai, I’m From Andhra, I love Malayalam Movies, and they are soft romantic and gentle. On the whole Malayalam movies give a gentle good feeling without much violence (from the films I watched). I have only one thing to say for Malayalam Industry, Really the actors should look after their physique both male and female actors. Malayalam Actors who work in other Industries have transformed very well about their physique. Those who did thing are still in the Industry and those who don’t are disappeared long ago. Nayanthara is the perfect example for this. In every other technique Malayalam is much better than the other Industries In India. I hope someone will listen and think about this. I read lot of
Malayalam cinema news (chalachithram ) mollywood news here. Hope you enjoy too. Wishing a great year for Malayalam film Industry.
