I was in a dilemma at first between two of my favourite movies, one Bommarillu & Bangalore Days. Finally, I choose Bangalore Days coz though I did not know the language of the movie there was something that caught my attention and made me watch this movie somewhere in middle while I was surfing the channels. Moreover, the second reason is obviously due to the heartthrob “Dulquer Salmaan”.

My say on the Film – A movie filled with comedy, romance, drama and just a bit of action. What more can you ask for? A complete entertaining movie. You would not know you spend three hours watching the movie that how beautiful the movie is.
Closing Remarks – Just a small scene where Aju is friends with Saraj the RJ was so beautifully pictured that though I do not understand the Malayalam language. Yet, I was bowled over and was so curious to watch this movie. Trust me it is worth the watch. You will love the movie. Good Job people. Thanks for the wonderful movie.
