     7Early Mammootty crime movie. Telephone operator Anne marries rich criminal Tony (Mammootty), discovering his occupation only after their marriage. His illegal dealings are however presented as a consequence of his childhood experiences, when his mother was killed by villains and he was imprisoned. When Anne is raped by another man, Daniel, Tony kills Daniel and becomes a fugitive from justice, this time chased by sadistic cops not very different from the villains of his childhood. He is eventually caught. Although similar in many ways to Bachchan-type themes e.g. with Prakash Mehra, what is often noted with Mammootty is the extent to which corruption, crime and violence are treated as a fact of life and with remarkably little moral posturing. The violence of law enforcement agencies is, likewise, treated on a par with that of organised crime, distinguished only by the assumed goodness of the hero and those in his protection.
