The critics would’ve found faults with it. But director Sathyan Anthikkad knows how to connect with family audiences. Or that is exactly what the collections of his latest offering Snehaveedu denotes. The film starring Mohanlal, Sheela and debutant Rahul Pillai in lead roles is running to packed houses especially during the holidays.
Mohanlal plays Ajayan, who has returned home after working in the Gulf and Chennai for several years. He is a chronic bachelor and his brags about the numerous flings that he had during younger days lands him in trouble, when a teenager claims that Ajayan is his father!
The story has several loose ends which are quite unlike Sathyan’s usual films. The characters lack much depth and the script is generally faulty. Still, the film is getting reasonable collections, perhaps due to the director’s brand value! Mohanlal, of course, has performed in an excellent way and Sheela too doesn’t disappoint.
