Alright. First of all if you're always proud and only watch the 'award winning' Malayalam movies, then this is definitely not for you. Please stay away. There is no heart breaking background score, no eye-tearing sentiments, nor earth shattering dialogues. Instead it's brilliant camera work and moves, wonderful action sequences, superb editing - a total slo-mo technical perfection. The first in it's kind in Malayalam. Forget the simple story plot. Just sit and watch the show if you're an action lover. I enjoy this movie much much more than 'Four Brothers' the English inspired version. Mammootty is cool. The duet between Bala and Mamta is sweet to hear and well shot. The interval scene is excellent. The only thing I see missing a little is; Bala is a great fighter. The director should have given him couple of kick scenes! And Pasupathy's character little bit annoying at the first place. But these silly things won't affect the overall result. It's a visual treat. Being a great fan of director John Woo and his type of movies, I would call Amal Neerad the 'John Woo' of Malayalam Cinema!
Well done Amal!
