Priyadarshan's follow-up to his successful Chithram (1988). Two down-and-out friends, the tourist guide Jojy (Mohanlal) and the photographer Nischal (Jagathy), encounter Nandini (Revathi) whom they recognise from an advertisement offering a reward for finding her. They discover that she is trying to escape from her tormentor and is in search of her father. After scenes of romance and some remarkable song picturisations, interrupted by Nischal’s comically inept attempt to turn her in, Jojy defeats the terrifying villain, a Hindispeaking Muslim (often presented as the height of evil in Priyadarshan films) and wins the girl. Among the film's best moments are the comic scenes between the retired Judge Nambiar, played by the veteran Malayalam character actor Thilakan, and his bungling servant Kittunni (Innocent). Priyadarshan remade the film in Hindi as Muskurahat (1992), with less success.
