Mallu Singh

How can a movie which comes with the title of the leading protagonist of the story excel when the actor who plays that role gives a below average performance?. Director Vysakhs third outing with script writer Sethu (of the duo Sachi-Sethu) is a disappointing one. The plot had a different feel, but rendering it with …
