Story of an Indian politician in America.


“Despite Mohanlal's presence, Peruchazhi fails to impress because of its lagging second half, run-of-the-mill songs, and a half-witted climax. Unless you're a Mohanlal fan, skip it.”

Chanakya's Arthashastra gets adopted by the State of California! A story of how politics is a game that can be played dirty anywhere in the world. Jaganathan is invited to the State of California to help John Kory's campaign to win the Governor's post.

Mohanlal plays Jaganathan, a sports lover with a sharp political acumen who goes to America on the behest of his frenemy (friend+enemy) PWD Minister Francis Kunjappan, a role that Mukesh easily slunk into. This is a favour in return for millions of dollar which Janganathan will use to set up a sports academy to help the failing sportspersons of India. His aim is to shift the focus on other sports, because cricket blinds his fellow countrymen.

Jaganathan and his sidekicks set sail to American shores and then follows a string of comic scenes. The way he replicates the strategies that work in India politics and teaches a lesson or two to people who mess with him forms the rest of the movie.

Mohanlal's screen presence keeps your eyes locked, he looks crisp in the dhotis and in the well-tailored suits. His superman costume with "Su" written across his chest in Malaylam was a fail. Wearing the American flag as a dhoti was epic! Ragini Nandwani as Jessie makes it through the movie without uttering a word in Malayalam. John Kory doesn't have the aura of electoral candidate.

Arun vadiyanathan has done a neat job with the direction. Arrora's music blends in well. Some of the comedy scenes could have been edited out.

Overall a one time watch, just for Mohanlal.
