Maheshinte Prathikaaram Story

Mahesh is a happy-go-lucky young man who belongs to Idukki. He is a photographer by profession and the owner of Bhavana studio. Localities fondly call him 'Mahesh Bhavana'.

He is in love with his childhood friend Soumya (Anusree), who is a nurse. An unexpected incident turns Mahesh and Soumya's lives upside down and how they overcome it forms the rest of the plot.

Cast & Performance

Fahadh Faasil delivers an excellent performance Mahesh aka Mahesh Bhavana. He perfectly conveys all the emotions the character, without any exaggerations. Fahadh once again proves that he is one of the best actors of the industry.

Anusree plays Soumya, the small town girl to near perfection. Soubin Shahir is just brilliant as Krispin. The rest of the cast, including Dileesh Pothan, Jaffer Idukki, Alencier Lay, Aparna Balamurali, etc are also perfect in their roles.

Script & Direction

Actor Dileesh Pothan makes a fantastic directorial debut with Maheshinte Prathikaaram. He has perfectly made use of Syam Pushkaran's well-written script, which equally deals with the light humour, romantic and emotional elements. 

But the movie enters into a slow pace by the second half and the abruptly ends with a totally unexpected climax. But in overall, Maheshinte Prathikaaram is a neatly packed entertainer and a great comeback for the lead actor Fahadh.

Technical Aspects

Shyju Khalid has done a brilliant job as the cinematographer, by perfectly capturing the beauty of Idukki into the frames. Saiju Sreedharan's editing is fine. Sameera Saneesh's costumes deserve a special mention.

Songs & Background Score

Bijibal, the National Award winner has done a fabulous job with his soulful songs and superb background score. All the songs are exceptionally beautiful; especially the 'Idukki' song. Kudos to the lyricist Rafeeq Ahamed.


A highly impressive, well-packed entertainer for a perfect watch. Don't miss it..!
