Fahadh Faasil's latest Malayalam movie "Maheshinte Prathikaaram" was released in 67 screens in Kerala on Friday, 5 February, and it locked horns with Nivin Pauly starrer "Action Hero Biju", which was released on Thursday.
In Dileesh Pothan's debut directorial venture, Fahadh is seen as a photographer named Mahesh who owns a small studio in Idukki. The movie is the actor's second this year after "Monsoon Mangoes." Anusree is seen opposite Fahadh in the movie, which looks like a light-hearted fun-filled entertainer set in a village.
While the story and scripting of "Maheshinte Prathikaram" has been done by Shyam Pushkaran, cinematography and editing have been handled by Saiju Khalid and Saiju Sreedharan, respectively. Bijibal's music has garnered good response after two songs of the movie were released recently. "Maheshinte Prathikaram" is being produced by Aashiq Abu under the banner OPM Dream Mill Cinemas and is the second outing of Aashiq and Fahadh after the hit movie "22 Female Kottayam" in 2012.

Meanwhile, Nivin and Abrid Shine's "Action Hero Biju," released on Thursday, has been receiving positive response from movie-goers and if it will affect the Fahadh starrer is something we need to wait and watch.

Maheshinte Prathikaaram - മഹേഷിന്റെ പ്രതികാരം is a beautiful piece of work. Enjoyed it a lot smile emoticon Going in with a simple tale and making, there wasn't a single dull moment in the movie. Brilliant direction by Dileesh Pothen for a superb screenplay by Shyam Pushkaran. Beautiful frames by Shaiju Khallid & top notch music by Bijibal adds to the positives. Fahad, Soubin, Anushree, Aparna & every actor in the cast made their mark with their natural perfomances. Congrats to the whole crew. Happy that I could watch the movie with them at Saritha Theater today. The movie of the season is here. So do catch it at your nearby cinemas.

Well,The talented guy FAHADH FASIL is came back with his new movie, "MAHESHINTE PRATHIKAARAM" And the industry got another promising good director too DILEESH POTHEN Like the movie titled as Maheshinte prathikaaram.its not only deals with prathikaaram(revenge) but,also some sort of elements focusing into the rural area unnecessary silly common conflicts or issues happening from the after effects arising out of causing someone's somewhere, at last, all these lead to a clash between two young peoples highlighting these and it laid the foundation for framing out the protagonist way.The movie revolves around the true life ,love,care,passion, real incidents , realistic characters and more... The movie start with a beautiful song called IVAL AANU MIDUMIDUKKI (idukki song) ,One of the best visualization ever seen this year..The major role was played by FAHADH FASIL as Mahesh bahavan a studio photographer ,and ANUSREE playing his childhood friend and lover called soumya..and following the all co-actors ,supporting casts made their space and contributions handled well especially promising two lead role actors Soubin shahir and Alencier Ley in all sense a good movie for all 100days movie✌
