The film can turn out to be a crucial one for virtually everyone involved.

Mammootty, who has been going through one of the worst phases in his career with flops one after the other, has been mainly banking on the heavy satellite revenues that his films ensure.

Suresh Gopi is no longer the busy star that he was.

Renji Panicker has been taking a break for a while now and some big duds have seriously affected Shaji Kailas' credentials as a hotshot director. The quartet is all looking forward to the success of the film at the box office.
