MESMERISING !!

to start off...hats of to Sreenivasan.. this movie really does prove his inner talents.Vadakku Nooki Yanthram is a story about a guy confused,got this complex sorta behaviour, has no zest in life, hes played by Sreenivasan ,who runs a press.

The movie starts off with his marriage, there are some real hilarious stuff seen in the movie,the scene when he meets his newly wed bride in his room, the way he talks to her,..trust me sreenivasan is the only guy who can do this.and then his inferiority complex, he starts doubting his wife for all the wrong reasons, if he sees her sharing a joke with his younger brother it makes him just heat the roof!!,

The scene , where, parvathi tells him that many gr8 ppl usually drink, including her very own uncle.that very day, srreeni feels like hes born new , and goes to the bar , nd gets drunk heavily, wid his mate played by innocent-whose just PERFECT!

Sreenivasan is a class .This is probably one of the few malayalam movies which got a great script nd story , nd o ya..the witty stuff of sreenivasan makes the movie a total UNique..! if u have seen this make sure you also see MANDAMAAR LONDONIL (FOOLS IN London)......this is two thumbs UP!
