Story: The film narrates the life of two women who bring up a boy and the way they come to terms with the boy's search for his real father.

Review: In a film that deals with emotional bonds that arise out of artificial insemination, there is one scene which in every way fits into a weak act of contrivance. The film shows two women Meenakshy (Asha Sharath) and Padma (Bhumika) playing mother to an adolescent boy. Just as we begin to wonder if the women are lesbians, a scene appears more like an afterthought.

Meenakshy and Padma indulge in a fake act of intimacy during a party and while doing that, they declare it as an act to mock other women who take them for lesbians and sneer at them. The scene doesn't produce any comical effect even with all the energetic gurgle of the women. It's as though the scene was added with an apprehension that portraying them as lesbians would be scandalous.

In fact, the film later goes on to wider realms and introduces a care-free middle-aged rich man, Manikunju Thadikaran (Anoop Menon) and his friends which also include Balachandra Menon as Shanku. The narrative is primarily about a boy's search for his father after having been brought up by two women who misperceive men and the practice of family life.

The film does flaunt some lively moments, courtesy some earthy quips from Anoop Menon. However the abundance of emotional downpour drowns the narrative. There are some scenes which leisurely consume time as the characters indulge in mushy recollections and philosophical musings.
