Hotel California is a picture with a namesake title,with no substance or specific story to tell and end. This is a kind where you keep illogicality to be replaced as new logic and sit back,enjoy the innumerable characters which ties you in a hilarious mood.
Through the Characters

Certain others characters are too involved which includes Autodriver Bavutty, Koshy’s daughter in law Linda Tharakan,Sub Collector Anu,Local pimp Anil, Location assistant Shibu etc..
Our four main leads arrive in Kochi through a fictional airplane Pushpak Airlines,and rest are settlers of Kochi. These characters and storylines intersect at different points with more than one point of intersection. A spoof on terrorism and hypocrisy,the film-makers follow a hedonistic approach to various institutions such as marriage,women’s heart.
Editing and cinematography doesnt have any unusual style,background score going wild with bump bump feeling. A song out of nowhere,with Anoop Menon’s lyrics,Shan Rahman’s good music,featuring small screen star Kavitha Nair and theater artiste Kani Kusrutti hopes to do some career boost to their artistic life.
The reason why people rushes to theatres for the film is Jayasurya’s performance and Anoop Menon penned dialogues which lights up our hearts to laugh without any formality.
