Review Maheshinte Prathikaram & earn 20 DM Points.*

Dileesh Pothan who has been an assistant director and actor,makes his directorial debut with Maheshinte Prathikaaram which has been produced by his mentor, Aashiq Abu. The film features Fahadh Faasil in the lead along with a wonderful supporting cast. Fahadh hasn't been having a good run at the box office of late, with some strange choice of subjects in the recent past. But with Maheshinte Prathikaaram we see the debut of a talented director and a return to form of the leading man.

Set in Prakash City of Idukki which in reality is just a village of sorts, Mahesh Bhavana (Fahadh Faasil) runs a photo studio and lives with his aged father who used to be a photographer himself. Mahesh has been wanting to marry his childhood sweetheart Soumya (Anusree) but she gets married to someone else instead. An unexpected incident in a public place brings him in confrontation with some unknown people,leading to an altercation where he gets beaten up. Hurt and humiliated, Mahesh swears not to wear footwear any more till he takes his revenge.

At the very core this is quite a realistic and simple tale that is engaging all the way. Dileesh Pothan makes sure to incorporate some wonderful moments in the film, Bijibal's songs and Shyju Khalid's cinematography lend a lot of charm to the film. Anusree and Aparna Balamurali as the romantic interests of Mahesh are effective, while K.J.Antony as Mahesh's father, Alancier Lay as Babychayan and Soubin Shahir as Crispin are wonderful. Ultimately the film is a triumph in every sense and will leave you smiling indeed.
