Story: Mukunthanunni (Jayaram) is an ill-fated farmer whose business endeavours end up in failure. Unexpectedly, he has to take up the task of warding off an evil-spirit from a mansion where he also finds his love.

Movie Review: In Manthrikan , there are two elements that persistently try to outsmart the other in terms of producing the desired effects. While the comic script of this film is horrifying for most part, the horror element does the opposite. The comedy rests mainly on a seemingly jaded Jayaram and his friends who have to deliver bawdy one-liners.

The comedy scenes include the hero along with his friends trying to roll up the night-dress of the heroine with a stick to spot a mole on her thighs; the same team light up a religious hearth ignorant of the fact that it is full of fire-crackers and the eventual picture is charred figures moaning over their fate. Suraj Venjaramoodu dons the role of a quack tantrik (magician), industriously distorts his face, body and vocals to make things work, but fails.

The horror elements slightly defy the cliches. The yakshi wears a half-sari, a colourful one. A tree catches fire on its own, a knife slices through her body and at time she spins off in a circle, perfectly like a fan in motion. An ineffective narrative that is uncertain about mixing horror and humour ruins Manthrikan .
