Full marks to the actress for taking up the character of an aged woman. The actress did fine job and looked cent percent convincing in her role.
Most interesting aspect is the fact that most of the supporting actors got much scope for performing. This is definitely a good sign for Malayalam cinema, as the movies releasing now are not just focusing on the lead characters alone.
Take the case of films like Kammatipaadam and Action Hero Biju. The former had some great performances including a very matured and controlled performance of the lead actor Dulquer Salmaan. Rajeev Ravi spotted some fine talents and the casting was so apt for the movie
Action Hero Biju too, gave scope to actors like Suraj Venjaramoodu and Meghanathan to prove their credibility as versatile actors. The film also had a good number of newcomers.
Maheshinte Prathikaram also brought in good number of newcomers to deliver some natural and fine performances. This definitely proved good for the movie and it brought in the required amount of freshness to the film.
We hope that we could witness some fine performances like the above in the films releasing in the second half of 2016 also.
