    The funniest Malayalam movie I have watched in ages. Relies a lot on physical comedy similar to Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton. In fact the first time I watched it was without sound and I burst out laughing

    A product of its times and a Jayaram staple (often filled with misogyny). Today this movie would make you angry and sympathise with the woman

    It's a pretentious movie both intellectually and visually. Smart ideas have been presented before - Minority Report, Total Recall, Groundhog Day but these movies and especially the first two Philip K Dick movies were fun to watch and didn't take itself seriously. But the ideas behind it were interesting and smart.

    This movie takes itself too seriously. And the exact scene is when Jared Leto killed a replicant spouting weighty dialogue with "very serious and important ideas". That's the scene were the movie lost it for me.

    How did this movie get made? How. A fat obese Mohanlal is twisting,turning, gyrating and polevaulting at neck breaking speeds. Yet fitter people than him couldn't even touch him. Mohanlal though played a salt of the earth type instead of an arrogant asshole seen in Narasimham. Even the secondary characters had no other lines except to praise Mohanlal or to ask him for help. Jerking Mohanlal's ego this many times is surely not going to help him
