Story : The movie centres on the life of a boy who makes a living out of rearing and selling the fish Guppy, which also earns him the same name. His life takes a turn after a civil engineer comes to his village to build a bridge.

Review : Right from its first frame, debutant director John Paul George takes the audience through a picturesque journey filled with pristine shores, colourful alleys, iridescent fishes and even more vibrant people. That's exactly what grips the viewers in this movie, spanning over two and a half hours.

The movie revolves around the life of a boy named Guppy (Chethan), who earns a living out selling the fish of the same name and hopes to buy his paraplegic mother an automatic wheelchair. Interweaved in his tale is the life of young friends and his elder well-wishers played by Alencier Ley and Sudheer Karamana. With the entry of a swash-buckling engineer Tejas Varkey (Tovino Thomas), Guppy's life takes a turn - with the duo engaging themselves in an ego tussle of sorts right from their first meeting. How they resolve the differences and at what cost form the plot.

Chethan as the loving son and the headstrong leader of his pack wins hearts with his performance. He gives his senior counterparts a run for their money during the emotional moments he shares with his mother (Rohini) and audacious ones with the conflicted engineer. Tovino is effortless in shifting his expressions within a moment's notice and brings gravitas to his character, whose past the viewers are kept in the dark till the dying stages of the movie. The actor looks the part too complete with bandholz beard and a swagger to boot.
Actors Dileesh Pothen, Alencier Ley and Noby do their bit to keep the audience entertained but it's Sreenivasan who takes the cake in his restrained role as the ever-vigilant grandfather.

Where the movie falters is its length - which becomes lumbering with one too many sub plots. While it all eventually pays off, it tests the audience's patience and the interest to get the answers wane towards the end. The first half has too many songs packed in it. But the movie's cinematographer Girish Gangadharan and music director Vishnu Vijay can take a bow; if Guppy is any indication of their calibre, the duo are sure to go places.

Its director and scriptwriter John too deserves credit for weaving the beautiful tale, even if it's 20 minutes too long. Some crisp editing and restrain from indulgent frames could have turned this above average film into a delight to watch.

This movie really deserves an applause. <br/>It touches tender heart and dreams in a simple, but powerful way.<br/>Especially the sequence of a grandfather taking care of Aamina, a Truely humble son Guppy, with a completely different character of Engineer thejus. Above all the story/ direction ends up telling why/ how the characters are needed for the situation. Also all the negativity/ tragedy wiped out with hope and positivity.<br/>I regret watching this movie in theatres.<br/>Will give these ratings.<br/>Director - 8.5/ 10- would have given 9 if the lag was reduced.<br/>Chetan- 9/10<br/>Srinivasan- 8.5/10- he has more caliber and expected little more frames/ space.<br/>Tovino- 9/10<br/>Rohini- 8/10 <br/>Sudheer- 9/10<br/>Guppy''s friends- 8/10<br/>Editing- 6/10<br/>Photography-8/10<br/>Music- 8.5/10<br/>Lyrics- 8.5/10
