The film narrates the romantic tale of a Kerala cop who rescues an Odisha girl.
exudes romance that's beyond borders. It's about two lovers; an Odisha girl and a Malayali police constable united by adversities. The film juggles the narrative between an impoverished state of the 1980s and the present times tracking the memories of an aged couple.
The setting is vast and real; the frames capturing the blistering terrain of a remote country side in Odisha populated with pale, tired human faces. There are honest portrayals of a damned ritual which requires an eighteen-year-old girl to submit herself to the country-lord who claims to be an impersonation of the almighty.
Padmakumar, while depicting a narrative richly laden with tremendous possibilities, appears overwhelmed as he lacks economy in arranging the scenes. Be it the blooming romance, the battle against oppression or the evocation of tender emotions; he consumes too much time and too much space. For this reason, the plot appears stretched, downplaying the efforts of a cast who puts in their best to absorb their characters.
Unni Mukundan, who plays the constable, appears tentative even while trying to place his character a few inches above mediocrity. His portrayal of old-age is marked by a perennial sense of stoicism which also invades his voice-over. Sanika Nambiar is the damsel in distress and fails to conceal her handicaps as her character gathers age. There is nothing notable about the music which appears jarred and too remote for the narrative.
