Mammootty is just fantastic as David Ninan, the doting father. The Great Father has totally made use of both the acting chops and star status of the actor to the fullest. Mammootty once again proves why he is called the 'megastar' of Mollywood, despite the drastic ups and downs in his career.
If you are expecting a totally Mammootty show, The Great Father will leave you disappointed. The Great Father equally caters the family audiences as well as the youth, by handling a highly relevant social issue in the most sensible way. The different treatment might not go well with common audiences, but it is the factor which makes the movie unique and more gripping.
A totally appealing family thriller for the season. Don't miss this one if you truly admires Mammootty, as both an actor and a star.
