Director Lal Jose's latest film after 'Chandupottu',  is a realistic fare dealing with issues of religion conversion and the emotional strain and sorrows experienced by a widower.

The story goes like this. Early 1970s, Prabhakaran, a student at Thiruvalla Marthoma College, falls deeply in love with Lillikutty (Usha), a Christian girl and decides to marry her against the wishes of his family. At her parents’ insistence, he converts to Christianity, changes his name to Samuel and marries her. Though he converted to Christianity, he soon realizes that he will not be accepted in the main stream Christian community. Meantime Lilli Kutty dies, leaving him with three daughters to bring up.

Years pass by ..Samuel, an employee of the Irrigation Department now is on the verge of retirement. His eldest daughter, Treesa (Suja Karthika), is married to a drunkard driver Johnnykutty ( Harisree Asokan). His second daughter Sherly (Samvritha) is the one who does the house chores. She is in love with her cousin (Prithviraj). However, as Christians frown upon marriage between first cousins, things take a tragic turn. Samuel pins his hopes on his third daughter Lissamma (Muktha) and dreams of grooming her to be a doctor. But Lisamma goes missing one day, only to be found later in a bad situation. She had fallen prey to a sex-racket, exploited by many people and later was traced by the police. Rest of the story shows the cruel legal trials, sensationalising of the issue by the media and attitude of the society towards the victim and her family.

The performance of every one of the cast is commendable. But The debutant Muktha, an eighth standard student at St. Augustine's Higher Secondary School Kothamangalam, has done a commendable performance as Lisamma. Salim Kumar, who is well known as a reputed comedian plays the challenging and difficult role of the hero Samuel. He proves that he can handle serious role with ease. Harisree Asokan enacts the role of the drunkard driver, Johnykutty equally well. Murali as Samuel's friend has some power packed dialogues and Pritviraj offers something new. Casting of women characters is almost perfect. Suja Karthika, Samvrutha and Muktha looks convincing as the daughters of Usha.

Babu Janardhanan’s screenplay, influenced by happenings that we witness around us, is virtuous in its content. The fantastic camera-work of Manoj Pillai adds to the beauty of each frame of the film.

The role of religion in the life of a common man and the difficulties a middle-income family experiences are well portrayed in this movie. It also shows the emotions and problems of a widower when he is alone in the society. Nobody expected a commercial director like Lal Jose genuinely attempting a highly realistic film like this. Overall this film definitely is a wake-up call for society.
