First of all, we have to admit that we are glad to see Mammootty in light-hearted and masala roles again. It indeed was becoming tiresome to see their versatile actor in very serious roles one after the other. For all those fans who share similar sentiments, Maayavi is a treat. Forget logic here and just enjoy the new offering from director Shafi and Mammooty.
Mammootty is Mahendra, also known as Mahi. He is a do-gooder who tries his best to help the needy. When the problem goes out of hand, or if the perpetrator of crime is a notorious anti-social element, he switches to IAS. IAS stands for Iruttu Adi Service, Mahi's way of dealing with negative elements. At night he wears a superhero mask and punishes the culprits. The idenity of the hero remains a mystery to the general public. Slowly and steadily, the name and fame of this mysterious superhero grows.
