Abrahaminte Santhathikal Review & Rating


Abrahaminte Santhathikal, written by Haneef Adeni and directed debutant by Shaji Padoor, is one of the much-awaited films of the season. Starring Mammootty in the role of the fearless police officer Derick Abraham, the movie is touted to be investigation thriller which is stylish in every bit. Quite high on hype, with Abrahaminte Santhathikal, Mammootty is expected to strike big at the box office. Read Abrahaminte Santhathikal review below.

Derick Abraham is a top-notch cop of the department; a man who is sure of himself and considers his duty first before all. He is often given special tasks by the force and is the final word in every investigation. Derick life goes upside down when he finds out that one of the suspects in an investigation undertaken by him is none other than his own brother. Will the ethics or love for his blood take over the case? The rest of Shaji Padoor's Abrahaminte Santhathikal unfolds a gripping tale which has a lot of suspense.

Mammootty as Derick Abraham at once a superhero and an actor; a combination we haven't seen in a while. There are scenes in which Derick is portrayed in a larger than life manner utilizing the apparent stardom of the megastar. But the film also makes use of the actor in him brilliantly. And Mammootty shines in his performance throughout the film and his character, with all its complexities, is safe in his hands. Anson Paul who appears as Philip Abraham has delivered a decent performance but it is obvious that he has room for improvements.

Kaniha and Tarushy, who are the leading ladies of Abrahaminte Santhathikal, have done justice to their respective roles. The rest of the cast including actors like Siddique, Kalabhavan Shajohn, Yog Japee, and Renji Panciker who appear in the prominent roles of the film has done a fine job with their respective characters. Siddique's performance and Yog Japees role are two of the major highlights of the film.

Shaji Padoor, who has a vast experience in the film field, has made his entry a remarkable one. He ably plays with the non-linear narrative pattern and has made the most out of Mammootty's stardom as well as acting prowess. Haneef Adeni's story is a thrilling one and much like his directorial debut The Great Father, Abrahaminte Santhathikal also has the elements of family and relationships in the play. 

Another major appealing factor about Abrahaminte Santhathikal is its exhilarating frames by cinematographer Alby. Each frame in the film is exceptional with entwining light and shadows. Gopi Sunder has also done a good job with the background score which blends in finely with the scenes. Mahesh Narayanan, the editor, has also proved his expertise in the film which is indeed one gem of a thriller.

Final Verdict: Abrahaminte Santhathikal makes a decent investigative thriller which is intriguing from the start. A compelling watch!

What To Expect From Abrahaminte Santhathikal?

Mammootty's Intense And Mind-blowing Performance As Derick Abraham

Mammootty is turning 67 in a couple of months time, but ask anybody, he is the most handsome actor in the M'town. From the trailer, it is apparent that the actor sports two different -equally appealing- looks in Abrahaminte Santhathikal.  It is needless to say his absolutely intense looks done the trick of setting up the uproarious hype among the fans. Mammootty has a good number of stunning police roles to his credit and Derick Abraham is likely to be the next in the list.

Anson Paul's Breakthrough

Anson Paul has been part of many big movies including Dulquer Salmaan's Solo and Jayasurya's Aadu 2. The actor also made his independent debut recently in the lead role of Kala Viplavam Pranayam. However, despite his good looks and charming physique, Anson Paul is yet to get a real breakthrough. Abrahaminte Santhathikal has him in the role of Mammootty brother. Presumably, it is one of the substantial roles Anson has bagged in his career and let's hope he makes it this time. 

Some Memorable Dialogues, Thrilling Scenes, And High Octane Action

Going by the trailer, Abrahaminte Santhathikal in its very essence is a full-on, stylish thriller with all the ingredients of a mass superstar film. Unlike few of Mammootty's recent releases which made a parade of the superstardom of the actor, this Haneef Adeni-Shaji Padoor film seems to have an engaging and compelling story that will keep one hooked to the screen. Watch out for some memorable dialogues, thrilling scenes and high octane action.
