More about Malaikottai Vaaliban

Malaikottai Vaaliban also stars Sonalee Kulkarni, Hareesh Peradi, Manoj Moses, Katha Nandi, Danish Sait and Manikandan Achari. Lijo Jose Pellissery has co-written the film with PS Rafeeque. The film marks RJ-turned-actor Danish Sait’s Malayalam debut. He plays the antagonist, Chamathakan, with a different hairstyle and even a beard.

The trailer doesn’t tell much about the film plot. Opening up about it, Lijo had told The in an interview, “We are telling a story. I wanted to use a very Indian terrain and the characters to be rooted in that background. But I have taken elements from around the globe, from Japanese folk culture, the Samurai culture in Japan, from Westerns and so on, but I also wanted to make sure that it had no touch of the Western influence.”

HT review

The Hindustan Times review of the film read: “Lijo Jose Pellissery’s film is intriguing to say the least. There is no clear cut storyline and the director is in no hurry to tell the tale that has intricate layers. The drama proceeds at a slow pace with the stunning visuals by cinematographer Madhu Neelakandan breathing life into the scenes. Again, there are some scenes that spark brilliance, especially the parts where 63-year-old Mohanlal is engaged in fights showing off his excellent physical prowess and fitness levels.” However, there are some issues as well in the film.
