The film moves around seven men who end up in prison and then hatch a plot for a theft.
Anil Radhakrishnan Menon has a flambuoyance about his film-making; rich, cheerful and good-hearted. Going into his second film, his choice is smart; tale of seven men who scheme a theft. For some strange reason, thieves and their trade emanate a natural charm, usually associated with folklores. It is forceful, imposing and unavoidable like bedtime stories putting kids to sleep; the viewers feel themselves drawn to it.
This wilful submission to the story of a few men who meet in a prison for different reasons stems from the fact that the director maintains an iron grip over the chords of narrative. He plays around with the word ' gentle' right from the title. The thieves are not unkempt men with blood-shot gaze whose sweat smells of menace. They are rather unbelievably innocent, their huge statures dwarfed by hollow blunders; one who would run away from chasing people in darkness with his head-torch on and another weakling who makes sure that he leaves the sticker of his shop on a camera-embedded soap box meant for a shameful purpose.
Characters in this film, especially the thieves are of meek nature, be it the lead character Krishnanunni, played with benign calm by Prithviraj or the old,broke financier Noble (Nedumudi Venu) who ends up in prison. There is an easy flow to the plot comprising seven thieves, built up with sequences effectively used to construct the steps that would lead to their eventual objective; to plunder some black-money.
may not figure among those racy thrillers which would freeze the eyelids. Still this film exudes a witticism, its use of Thrissur slang amply contributing to the comic effect. Chemban Vinod owes it to Anil for the trust the director has invested in him. Playing a dumb thief with an open heart, he is a natural charmer stealing the show with his immaculate rendition and screen presence. Prithviraj, Asif and others put in their parts from the bottom of their hearts.
It hurts to frown at this film for the shades of mystery it leaves around and for the way it does a repetitive act of fiddling with identities, true and fake. This is one film that is not going to disappoint for there is an energy that is infectious.
