When Anoop is found murdered in his room in a nondescript and shady lodge, Asst. Commissioner of Police Ratheesh (Mohanlal) who takes charge of the investigation has several possible motives to explore, political rivalry being just one of them. As Ratheesh interrogates Anoop’s friends and those connected with him, Anoop’s character slowly unfolds and we get the full picture. Anoop a qualified engineer, instead of taking up a lucrative job joins politics and strives to bring in positive change. He can, not only communicate with the locals and comrades in local Wayanad dialect but also relate with ease to music crazy youngsters with his knowledge of Michael Jackson and Bob Marley.
It is indeed a pleasure to see veteran actor T.G. Ravi in a minor role as a comrade, party office bearer and a mentor of Anoop and he carries-off that role with élan. His excellent portrayal of a rich, old, terminally ill patient flirting with the nurses attending to him in the film '22 Female Kottayam' is still fresh in our minds.
