Complicated melodrama, adventure movie and whodunit set mainly in Florida. This definitive Malayalam hit established the combination of star Mammootty and director Sasi. He plays Ramesh, an undercover investigator checking the murder of Albert, the captain of a ship and husband of heroine Radha. He also investigates the loss of the ship Kaikeyi. The film’s main highlight includes strippers in Miami, and shootouts on American streets, before the final confrontation with an international gang and the triumphant return of the good guys. The film’s three songs included the Never on Sunday tune from Jules Dassin’s Pote Tin Kyriaki (1960).
