     12Priyadarshan’s highly adapted version of Asit 
     13Sen’s Deep Jweley Jai (1959) and Khamoshi 
     14(1969) following also in the wake of Milos 
     15Forman’s successful One Flew Over the 
     16Cuckoo’s Nest (1975). Mentally deranged hero 
     17Vinu (Mohanlal) is admitted to an asylum, 
     18where he is befriended by one of the doctors 
     19(Venu) who happens to be a childhood buddy. 
     20Heroine Savithri (Karthika), also employed in 
     21the hospital, falls for the hero in the process of 
     22curing him. However, Savithri’s tyrannical 
     23father (Soman), who owns the asylum, cruelly 
     24performs a lobotomy operation on the hero 
     25because he fears for his daughter’s future. Like 
     26all Priyadarshan films, this one too works 
     27extensively with flashbacks, using the various 
     28drastic shock treatments meted out to the hero 
     29as an excuse for some psychedelic musical 
     30effects.
