Ajith is a malayalee television journalist working in Calcutta.While on work he meets a newly married couple who happens to be from Kerala.Later on in a television news he finds that the man among the couple has been murdered.Fearing about the safety of the woman,he along with other people from the social club formed by malayalees,search for this woman and finds her at a ramshackle house in a slum area.He finds that the woman named Krishnapriya has been duped by her husband who married her for a sinister objective.The film looks at this journalistic investigation by Ajith and shocking truth it reveals.
Blessy as a director shines in parts,but seems to be confused on what aspect of the story to concentrate.In the end, film do not have a cohesive screenplay and it meanders into meaningless subplots which not only confuses audience,but pull down the movie completely towards the end.The film which starts on an intriguing note instead of maintaining that mysterious,suspense element, needlessly get into superstitious stuff which is not only unbelievable but unintentionally comical as well.Also Blessy seems to play to the gallery by bringing in a stereotype villain and fights which do not serve any purpose,rather becomes a letdown after such a promising start.In spite of all these flaws film is some what saved by few trademark Blessy scenes and good performances from lead characters.Credit has to be given that he has not completely lost it,when you look at the natural portrayal of middle class life of Ajith as well as an authentic portrayal of Calcutta.
Coming to acting front,it is Meera Jasmine all the way because of her awesome screen presence and charm,eventhough she has not nailed the character to perfection.If you do a microanalysis,you can find flaws in her performance,still she carries the film by her sheer presence and innocence which force us to forgive the minor flaws. Dileep gives a fine performance as the sensitive journalist.Innocent as usual gives a fine performance,but the scenes involving him to invoke laughter seems to be cliche and one expects better stuff from a director of calibre like Blessy.Special mention has to be made to Indrajith,who though in a small role was able to make an impact.
