Director Haneef Adeni's Malayalam movie Mikhael starring Nivin Pauly, Manjima Mohan and Unni Mukundan has received positive review and rating from the audience.
Mikhael is an action thriller with a good dose of other commercial elements to woo the family audience. Besides direction, Haneef Adeni has written the script and dialogues for the movie, which has been produced by Anto Joseph Film Company. The film has received a U/A certificate from the censor board and its runtime is 2.30 hours.
Mikhael movie story: The film evolves between two families. Mike (Nivin Pauly) is a doctor, who is a guardian angel in the mortal man's world. He set out for revenge against someone, who has done injustice his family. How protects his beloved sister from a family feud forms the crux of the story.
Analysis: Mikhael deals with routine revenge drama, but Haneef Adeni has made it look fresh with amazing twists and turns, which keep you hooked on to your seats. The movie is engaging and entertaining, but it is predictable and dragging in parts, say the filmgoers.
Performances: Nivin Pauly has delivered an electrifying performance, which is the highlight of Mikhael. Unni Mukundan, JD Chakravarthy and Manjima Mohan have done good jobs, which are also among the attractions of the movie. Sudev Nair, Babu Antony, Siddique, Suraj Venjaramood and Kalabhavan Shajon have done justice to their respective roles, say the audience.
Technical: Mikhael has rich production values and Vishnu Panicker's beautiful picturisation, Gopi Sundar's stunning background score, amazing choreography of action scenes and dialogues are the attraction on the technical front, add the viewers.

#Mikhael is a strictly avg fare which lacks a solid plot and a solid hero. Adeni who managed to deliver two decent outings before (one as a writer) wasn't able to pull of things properly this time.Couple of mass scenes in the second half are the only portions where he cud shine. Haneef Adeni kind of filmmakers need a strong subject at the centre or a star who can elevate his mediocre writing style.While #TGF worked on this, Abraham was saved by the hero and the director. With none of these working with #Mikhael he struggled to a bix extent.

#Mikhael Interval : Has been an average show so far with a not so interesting story.But with a lot of build up in the beginning and intriguing characters, there is a lot of potential to the second half Fingers Crossed
SK Reviews @SK_SHA_KOLLAM
#Mikhael : First Half : Good Watchable | Filled With Family Sentiments | Disappointed Guest Role From #BabuAntony | #UnniMukundan Only in 1-2 Scenes | Excellent Performance From #Sidhique | Rich Visuals #Waiting For A Powerful 2nd Half #SK #SKreviews #NivinPauly
#Mikhael Routine Cliche Plot, with a decent execution from #HaneefAdeni #NivinPauly excels in emotional scenes , however he has to work on mass sequences. Dialogue delivery#Unnimukundan BGM Too slow.Overall strictly one time watchable thriller. 2.5/5 AVERAGE

#Mikhael another flop for @NivinOfficial . Lagging and dragging in most parts . Old story , same approach, same shots . Hey ,we have seen many films like this . And dear Haneef Adeni , please stop copying dialogues from Hollywood films

Watched Mikhael an average outing from Haneef Adeni - Nivin Pauly team .Story and making not up to the mark Fights and BGM Unni Mukundan ✌overall an average flick ☝2.5 out of 5 #mikhaelreview #mikhael #NivinPauly #UnniMukundan #HaneefAdeni
#Mikhael - A Strictly Average Flick Some good scenes with the following scenes letting down.. Felt there is continuity issues in many scenes..
SecondShow Media ™ @2ndShowMedia
#Mikhael is a failure attempt from #Haneef & Nivin. A Cliche revenge thriller with poor performance from cast. Nivin failed terribly in action scenes & dialogue delivery. He can't even walk stylish in Gopi sunder's stylish BGM. Unni is just ok as villain. Rating: 2/5
