Grandmaster, directed by B Unnikrishnan is an out and out Mohanlal film. Everybody who has been criticising superstar Mohanlal off late for his acting and playing 'young' might need to take back their words!
Grandmaster is a crime thriller. Suspense thriller plots are always interesting, and if treated well has a huge potential. B Unnikrishnan has done just that.
Grandmaster doesn't starts off very well, but improves as scene progresses. The second half especially is very interesting as you get completely involved in the fast paced proceedings.
B Unnikrishnan does a good job of keeping the suspense intact, until the end. The criminal turns out to be the least suspicious one as is expected. What is disappointing is that a deliberate and unconvincing story is made around the so called criminal to give a logical explanation as to why he committed these murders. Mohanlal's slightly greyed hair gives him a very smart and dignified look.
