Bhaskar (Suraj Venjaramoodu) is a single parent who lives with his son Subramanian (Soubin Shahir), a mechanical engineer in a remote village. Bhaskar is an orthodox, strict, and a conventional type of person who believes in the outmoded parenting methods. Bhaskar has a huge mansion to live in, but his aversion to modern technology does not allow him to use even common electrical appliances at home. After much persuasion, Subramanian finally convinces his dad to permit him to find a job in Russia. In his absence, Subramanian arranges a maid to look after his dad. However, maids don't stick along for a long time because of Bhaskar's strict and orthodox rules. Fed-up of finding maids, Subramaniam returns one day with an Android Robot to take care of Bhaskar. Meanwhile, Subramaniam gets into a relationship with Hitomi (Kendy Zirdo) a Japanese national. How Subramanian finds his father's approval of the relationship forms the rest of the story. 




The sci-fi comedy-drama, directed by debutant Ratheesh Balakrishnan Poduval is a masterpiece of modern times. Rateesh took inspiration from the English movie Robot and Frank. The director hits the bullseye with his debut. 

Suraj Venjaramoodu was exceptional with his role as an ardent, weak old- man. His makeup and acting were simply superb. Although he is 40 and odd, he portrayed the role of a 70 plus old-man exceedingly well.  

Sooraj Thelakkad acting as an android is mesmerizing, forcing the audience to believe it is a Humanoid but no actor in it. 

Soubin Shahir excelled as a son miffed up between his ambition and love for his father. The father-son chemistry was very well executed to perfection. Love and emotions running high between the father and son were crafted precisely to move the audience emotionally.  

An excellent background score from Bijibal, which makes the audience time-travel into the past.  


A must-watch family entertainer. The plot is new, with plenty of unusual moments and a concealed message to the present culture. It's a good movie to watch with family.
