The feel-good film released in Feb 2020 also starred senior superstars Suresh Gopi and Shobana in key roles and was a money-minter at Box Office. Mohanlal says that he watched the film along with his good friend director Priyadarshan during lockdown. He admits that the film had many moments that made him laugh but surprisingly Priyan remained unaffected by any of them. Priyan admitted that he loved the film but could not relate to many scenes probably due to the 'generation gap'.
