Children’s adventure story adapting the ‘kids on vacation’ plot still associated amongst Indian children with Enid Blyton and Margaret Bhatty. Four school children trail a gang of museum thieves. On the way, they take part in bicycle chases, befriend a runaway delinquent and have a lavish lunch paid for by Malayalam superstar Mohanlal, in a brief guest appearance. In the end the kids overwhelm the gangsters’ hideout and fight it out with cricket balls and a little help from their beloved Manu Uncle (Mammootty), a scientist and secret agent. Suresh Gopi, as the bungling police chief, dominates the climax.
