Anto Joseph's Note :
Mammootty's Puzhu is coming out tomorrow. A few days ago, got a chance to see the film with Mammootty and his family. I won’t cut the strings by talking about the plot or Mammootty's character. But let me tell you something. When I saw the movie, I felt like giving a punch to Mammootty's character. I had that much hatred towards that unnamed hero. Like a discomfort caused by a worm crawling on the body. I was really impressed to see someone who had been with me for so long and had known me for ages had caused such a transformation on the screen. Though I got angry with the character, my love for Mammootty has increased a lot. I saw the magic of the man sitting next to me. I could see Mammootty's unbridled passion for characters.
Mammootty is never tired of acting. We, want see more of Mammootty’s magic. Of course, there are still a lot of characters waiting for Mammootty and us to covet. Parvathy plays a major role alongside Mammootty. The courage and dedication shown by Parvathy is commendable. The performance of our beloved Appunni Sasi also deserves an appreciation. All the actors are excellent.
Big salute to the director Ratheena; who made the movie with such a story. Ratheena has already marked herself with the first picture. The screenplay is by Harshad, Suhas and Sharafu, who are notable for their films like Unda and Varathan. Hugs to S. George; the producer, my dear friend and brother. To all the line-ups, including co-producers Rajesh Krishna and Reneesh Abdul Khader. What you have prepared is a first-rate film. Puzhu is another example of actor Mammootty renewing Malayalam cinema through new directors. I wish Mammootty could present us with many more new directors. All the best to ‘Puzhu’.
