One of the best Malayalam movies ever
14 November 2016 | by haarryiSee all my reviews

My review may seem hyperbolic, but trust me, it is not. In my book, Maheshinte Prathikaram, is one of the greatest Malayalam movies ever made. The characters live and breathe. The realism in even the smallest of things, like Mahesh cleaning his slippers in the beginning or his daily routine or every single relationships in the movie, is mind- boggling. The attention to detail is scary. Dialogues are original, yet close to life. The screenplay is the centerpiece, it simply is marvelous, a kudos to the writer. The directing was spotless. Cinematography was flawless. The casting was picture perfect, and Fahad once again proves, he is one young actor to reckon with.

The movie never tries hard enough to do anything, it just simply and brilliantly does what it means to do.
