Malaikottai Vaaliban movie review
An excerpt from the Hindustan Times Malaikottai Vaaliban review read, “Undoubtedly, it is Malayalam star Mohanlal, who is the backbone of this film. For him to accept this role is a feather in his cap and to have delivered an excellent performance – yet again – shows how talented and dedicated he is. He is stellar especially in the fight scenes and one must laud him for this… Mohanlal fans would have a lot of expectations from this film but one must remember that it is a Lijo Jose Pellissery film. Called a fantasy entertainer, there are elements that work in Malaikottai Vaaliban and elements that clearly don’t. Expect the unexpected.”
