Maheshinte Prathikaram : Review


After seeing the interesting trailer and the sweet songs of Maheshinte Prathikaram, we all set to watch the movie first day first show itself. This is a great come back of Fahad faasil and good start for debutant director Dileesh Pothan who was assistant of Ashiq Abu. Aashiq Abu is the producer of this fresh movie. Fahadh Fazil who is going through a low pace at the box office, has chosen a good choice at Maheshinte Prathikaaram.

‘Maheshinte Prathikaram’ revolves around the concepts of love and revenge. The story unfolds in a village in Idukki district. The film set in a rustic background has Fahad Fazil playing a studio photographer who takes wedding photos and is the owner of a studio in Idukki. He takes photos of all big and small functions in his village. During one such function, He comes across a mysterious incident. What follows form the plot of the movie.

Cinematography by Shyju Khalid is impressive and visuals of Idukki is a positive of this movie. Script was simple and straight by director itself. Music by Bijibal is heartwarming.

As usual Fahad is transformed completely as Mahesh, and really well in conveying the innocence of the character. Anusree played her part as Sowmya, Mahesh’s love interest. Shoubin Shahir in his trademark style came and conquered our hearts as Crispy. Alencier Ley impressed among the supporting actors. Lot of newcomers are introduced by Dileesh. Among them Aparna Balamurali as Jincy was natural in her acting. The guy who did the role of Jinson was also a good choice and didn’t look as if he was facing the camera.

The style of taking revenge on a person is enterly different and were nice to watch but the movie ends in an unexpected place where we even won’t imagine but it was different and nice.


  • Fahad and Anusree.
  • Direction.
  • Script and Cinematography.


  • Slow pace, movie demands this pace only.

Bottom Line: Anyone from a family can sit through and relax watching this light hearted film.

Rating: 3.5/5

Verdict: Good Movie
