The technical sides of the movie is good with T D sreenivas coming up with appreciable frames . The songs set by M Jayachandran are hummable . Set a short time of 120 minutes, some may not get interested in the second story and some may not be impressed with the overall treatment of the gems of Mollywood..
All in all, this Kadhaveedu ,is an above average flick , which but will not create wonders at the box Office.
