Kumbalangi Nights directed by Madhu C Narayanan, was such a feel-good entertainer that people found to relate to every character in the film. The film told the evolution of a set of male chauvinistic characters whose maleness got shredded with every passing frame. The film did not explicitly show what went through the minds of characters but rather left it to the viewers to analyse. One another factor that the audience found impressive were the detailing for the characters. Apart from the brilliant performances by actors, the technical aspects too deserved a thumps up. On the whole, the film was a sure-shot winner at the world box office garnering 38 crores in 45 days.
