Malayalam superstar Mohanlal enjoys a huge fan following among Malayali cine-goers. Now, a movie is made after his name and Manju Warrier plays his diehard fan in the Mollywood movie, which has now opened to fairly positive reviews.
Though the movie is called Mohanlal, it does not chronicle Lalettan's journey but is about his diehard fan. Mohanlal's influence on her life forms the crux of the story. Director Sajid Yahiya of Inspector Dawood Ibrahim fame helmed the project and Suneesh Varanad penned the screenplay.
While leading actress Manju Warrier plays Meenukutty, Indrajith Sukumaran and Unni Krishnan appeared in other key roles. Salim Kumar, Aju Varghese, Shebin Benson, Vishal Krishna and others form the ensemble cast. Mohanlal movie has Tony Joseph and Prakash Alex's music. Shaji Kumar handled the cinematography and Shameer Muhammed edited the flick.
In India cinema, not many movies are made on stars from their fans' perspective. One such recent example is Shah Rukh Khan's Fan.
Manju Warrier has done her role to perfection. She has lived the character and understood how a crazy fan lives and breathes. Indrajith Sukumaran as her husband has played his part well. Although the first half has some exaggerated moments, the second half is neat and enjoyable. Overall, it is easily a one-time watchable film.
The movie has spiked viewers' curiosity for the simple reason that it is about a Mohanlal fan. Moreover, Manju Warrier is starring in the film. The impressive teaser has doubled the audience's expectations. Will the film live up to the hype? Find it out in their words here:
