Acha Dhin Cast
Mammootty essays Durgapasad with much perfection. It is a
cakewalk for the much-experienced actor and sadly the character was
not enough challenging for him.
Debutante Mansi Sharma, who plays Sheethal has nothing much to
do in the film. The rest of the star cast, including Padmaraj Ratheesh, Kishore, Renji
Panicker, Sudheer Karamana, Manianpilla Raju, Kunjan, P
Balachandran etc are fine in their roles.
Script And Direction
The movie, which is penned by AC Vijeesh, impresses with a
decent beginning. But screenplay completely fails to narrate the
plot in an effective way and looks too weak after the second half.
The major twist, which was supposed to give a thriller mode to the
movie, ended up as an immature attempt.
Director Marthandan has failed to effectively narrate the weak
plot and loses the control over the film after the interval. The
director has not been able to bring out anything exciting from the
dull story line.
Pradeep Nair's cinematography has perfectly set the ambiance for
a family thriller. Ratheesh Raj's editing was not up to the mark,
as the movie fails to follow a rhythm from the beginning till the
Songs And Background Score

Mammootty As Durgaprasad

The actor plays his part well, but his performance couldn't save
the weak script.
Mansi Sharma As Sheetal
Mansi Sharma essays Sheetal, Durgaprasad's wife. Mansi is a good
pair for Mammootty in the case of looks, but fails to impress with
her performance. The actress has nothing much to do in her minimal
Padmaraj Ratheesh, the son of late actor Ratheesh appears
in a key role in the film. The actor inherits the rough and tough
looks and eyes of his father. But Padmaraj doubtlessly needs to
improve his acting skills.
Screenplay And Dialogues
Vijeesh AC, the scenarist who made his debut with Mammootty
starrer Immanuel, pens the screenplay and dialogues for
Acha Dhin. The movie impresses with decent
beginning; but disappoints after a certain point.
Director Marthandan completely fails to narrate the dull story
in an effective way. The movie completely goes out of the hand,
after it emerges to the thriller track.
Pradeep Nair's cinematography is above average. Mahesh
Narayanan's editing is not up to the standards.
Costumes And Art
Sujith Raghav is the art
director. Costumes are designed by Kumar.
Songs And Background Score
Songs and Background score are composed by Bijibal. The musician
proves that he is the best when it comes to the background score.
Songs are just average.
The movie is produced by Mammootty's close associate, under the
banner Cyn-Cyl Celluloid.
A below average flick by Mammootty-Marthandan duo, which
miserably fails to impress.
