Author TD Ramakrishnan praised Mahaveeryar for its making. The film, Mahaveeryar, is directed by Abrid Shine. TD Ramakrishnan says that the film is a brilliant political satire and Abrid Shine has taken it very interestingly. In a note shared on Facebook, Nivin Pauly, Asif Ali, Lal, and Siddique all played their roles beautifully, he said.
"Watched Mahaveeryar. I went to see it in the theatre on the day of its release because it was Mukundetan's story. Mukundettan's ability to tell a story in a simple yet interesting way is amazing. A brilliant political satire. Ebrid Shine has taken it very interestingly.
It is doubtful that the fun has gone a little too far in some places. It felt like connecting the two eras should have been a little more convincing. Nivin Pauly, Asif Ali, Lal, and Siddique all played their roles beautifully. Congratulations to Abrid Shine, M. Mukundan, and Nivin Pauly," T D Ramakrishnan noted.
At the same time, the film is getting a good response from the audience. The film is made in the time travel fantasy genre, which has not been shot much in Malayalam cinema. Nivin Pauly, Asif Ali, Lal, Siddique, Lalu Alex, and even minor characters in the film have done their roles well.
Cinematography by state award winner Chandru Selvaraj. The film's music and background score were composed by Ishaan Chhabra. This film has been produced by Nivin Pauly under the banners Pauly Junior Pictures and P.S. Shamnas under Indian Movie Makers.
