I reached the ticket counter at the Grand Cinemas only to realize that the morning trip was totally unnecessary. “Please give me two seats in the last row with one corner seat” I requested the Filipino girl at the counter. She was amused. “The Cinema Hall is empty and you can sit wherever you want.” She showed me the seating plan on her computer screen to show that all the seats are empty. However, having made the trip, I asked her to click on Row 1 Seats 6 and 7 and issue the Tickets. “Sir, if you are unhappy with your selection of seats you can sit anywhere else you want” she couldn’t resist the parting shot!!
Dulquer Salman (he is Malayalam superstar Mamooty’s son) is so natural, comfortable and easy in front of the camera and has given a facile performance without a bit of overacting or unnecessary histrionics. From a disappointing start in 'Second Show', his first film, he has grown into a natural actor. Nithya Menen the leading lady, Siddique, Mamu Koya, Kunjan and everyone else have done their bit to perfection.
