revolves around Akbar Ali (Mammootty), an underworld don. The movie kickstarts
with narration along with the pictorial
illustrations introducing the characters / the story. Akbar Ali is the son of
Mumbai underworld don Illyas Khan. Illyas and family members except Akbar are
wiped out by his arch rival Don Philip. Akbar is saved by Hajjikka (T.G. Ravi),
Illyas’ right hand. The grown up Akbar at the age of sixteen wreaks vengeance
and finishes Don Philip. For another ten years, no one heard of Akbar. Later he
returns as a gold smuggler and chooses to settle down at Mangalore. Akbar enters
into a sort of peace treaty with two other dons in the city – Uncle Sam (John
Paul) and Mani Menon (Kunchan). Everything seems fine until Anto Pandhare
(Sekhar Menon), nephew of Uncle Sam, enters the scene. Anto, a drug addict and
sexually obsessed /dysfunctional guy, is a chemist who runs a pharmaceutical
company and uses it as a cover for his crime business. Akbar doesn’t buy in the
idea of Anto and the conflict starts. Rest of the movie is about the conflict
amongst Akbar, Anto, Uncle Sam, Mani Menon. What happens next…??? Does Akbar
survive or Anto wins…??? Very much predictable plot…
Gangster. Even the script by Ahmed Sidhique, Abhilash Kumar
is very weak. Overall a shallow outcome.
and their Performance:
as the lead man, but no special performance from him. It is a disappointment to
watch Mammootty in movies where his acting caliber gets wasted. Yes, Mammootty
Kunchan (Mani Menon), Hareesh Peradi (Michael), John Paul (Uncle Sam), Dileesh
Pothan (Vidhura) are ok.
to watch out for:
of the movie)
(still, you might get bored).
A big disappointment … !!!
