| A Well-Written "Good Teachings Guide" For Kids. ♦ 69%
I was expecting a copy of some blown-off children's film with clichéd story-line and commonplace jokes. I was wrong, to an extent.

It starts off with a fantasy story of how a pen with a monkey head works wonders for a British. Characters grow into the screen as the beautiful narration advances and exposes plot points. Centered in a school, where a bunch of mischief machines find trouble doing their Math homework, the story revolves around Ryna Philips and his transition from bad boy to good boy. The aura is brilliantly captured, supported by a very good cast. The lead actor really pulls off his role well. Also, other kids keep us entertained with potshots to teachers, jokes and funny actions.

Jayasurya & Remya Nambeeshan do good as parents and they play pivotal roles towards the end. Chiefly, the story gives many life values throughout as to what is right, there is only one God, help others, say the truth always, etc.. As a result, it becomes a very good manual kinda film for kids who can learn stuffs.

What was supposed to be a fantasy flick goes serious towards the end and the climax just was the apt thing for the film. I loved Vijay Babu and his portrayal. Never a dull moment. Although, as an adult, the screenplay seemed to detach me with the whole experience. Not complaining of the 2 hours, but still, too much childish elements made me numb.

BOTTOM LINE: Recommended! Still, better than lots of other Mallu movies.
