Technical department too come up with a good show, starting from the soothing music by Ratheesh Vega. The visuals by S.B.Prijith and Editing by Shamjith too did the trick for the movie. Screenplay by Jayan-Sunoj don't have a very fresh theme to talk, however they tried their best to pack that in a simple movie with a short duration.
At the end the film with a very straight forward story, cool acting, with some soothing melody.The film has its moments, a pretty straight forward cool little tale. This film can't be rated as an extra ordinary, however can't be rated as a bad one either. Give it a try, this one will not disappoint!!
