When the conscientious old worker (Thilakan) is sacked by the factory owner, the worker’s Marxist son Gaurishankar (Gopi) changes his tactics for transforming society. Teaming up with Gayathri (Gauthami), the daughter of a once-famous Namboodiri writer, and Sreeraman (Jagathy), a loyal but minor political fellow traveller, the trio join a ruling political nexus of unscrupulous factory-owners, politicians and police chiefs, undermining and ruining them ‘from within’. The film’s aggressive advocacy of consumerism, featuring flashy clothes, cars and guns sometimes unintentionally substantiates its ‘end-justifiesthe- means’ message. The camerawork, often using spectacular noir effects, and Gopi’s performance, dominate.
