B Unnikrishnan, the writer-director opines that Fahadh Faasil is like the popular cricketer Brian Lara. Unnikrishnan compared Fahadh with Lara, in his recent Facebook post about Maheshinte Prathikaaram.
The film-maker, who recently watched Maheshinte Prathikaaram, has showered praises on the lead actor Fahadh, director Dileesh Pothan, producer Aashiq Abu, and the rest of the team through his post.
Unnikrishnan has compared Fahadh Faasil's performance, to Brian Lara, who magically scores a century even after three or four bad innings. He states that Fahadh makes use of his talent adventurously.
He feels that Fahadh and Brian Lara are similar, as both of them are not scared of being 'out'. Unnikrishnan has also asked the young actor to follow his instincts, without worrying about anything.
The director has also heaped praises on the writer Syam Pushkaran and director Dileesh. He remarks that Maheshinte Prathikaaram is the most entertaining movie that he has watched in the recent past.
Another actor, whom Unnikrishnan has specially congratulated is Soubin Shahir, who played the character Krispin. He has quoted a dialogue from the movie, to appreciate Soubin's performance.
Unnikrishnan concludes his post by praising the producer of the movie, Aashiq Abu, for his courageous attempt to rewrite the so-called cliche formulas of typical Malayalam entertainers.
