The Great Father also introduces a young talent in the form of Haneef Adeni, who has stepped to film-making with this Mammootty starrer. Mammootty is well-known for supporting young talents and once again he has supported the entry of a newcomer to the industry.

The actor has worked with a good number of debut film-makers in the recent past. Before the release of The Great Father, we take you through Mammootty's previous five associations with debut film-makers.

Kasaba (2016)

Kasaba, which was one of the biggest releases of Mammooty in the year 2016, marked the entry of youngster Nithin Renji Panicker as a director. The film, couldn't completely meet the expectations bestowed on the movie. But, the film satisfied the fans of the megastar and had a decent run at the box office.

Rajadhiraja (2014)

Rajadhiraja, marked the debut of young film-maker Ajai Vasudev. The film, scripted by Udaykrishna-Siby K Thomas, was an out-and-out entertainer that catered well to the fans. It is a fact that the movie didn't have anything new in it but the director was partially successful in creating an entertaining product.

Praise The Lord (2014)

Much was expected from this film, which was based on a story written by Zacharia. The film marked the debut of Shibu Gangadharan, who has worked as an assistant director in a good number of Malayalam films. Contrary to the expectations, the film went on to become a huge disappointment.

Box Office Verdict: Flop

Balyakalasakhi (2014)

This was one of the most prestigious projects of the actor in the year 2014. Balyakalasakhi, based on the novel of the same name written by Vaikom Muhammed Basheer. Debut film-maker Pramod Payyanur, who has had experience in theatre dramas, helmed this project which had Mammootty in dual roles.

Box Office Verdict: Flop

Daivathinte Swantham Cleetus (2013)

G Marthandan, who has worked as an associate to some of the prominent directors of Mollywood, became an independent film-maker with this Mammootty starrer, which hit the theatres in 2013. Yet again, this was a film that followed the template of usual commercial entertainers and did cater to certain sections of the audiences.

Box Office Verdict: Above Average

Not all of the above films have been successes at the box office, but it is quite a commendable effort from Mammootty to support new and upcoming film-makers.

Now, we have to wait and see how The Great Father would go on to be for Haneef Adeni and Mammootty. We hope that the film would strike gold at the box office.
