The whole film has been shot in Idukki and close-by places and the forest scenes are nothing not as much as a visual devour. Kunchacko Boban is on safe ground in this cheerful movie however it doesn’t test the performance of him all that much. Humor dialogues amongst Vishnu and Harish keep you engaged in the first half.

Directed by Sugeeth, the movie is a satire drama with Shivada and Alphonsa playing the lead women. Shivada completes a de-glitz part, which turns noteworthy towards the end.

The screenplay is free and does not energize at interims.
Shikkari Shambhu has a couple of amusing Moments yet could have been exceptional with a more grounded plot. Not an unquestionable watch but rather it’s for a targetted group of audience.
