Anjaam Pathiraa, written and directed by Midhun Manuel Thomas, was the first Mollywood blockbuster of 2020. The film starred Kunchacko Boban as Anwar Hussain, a criminal psychologist, Unni Maya as DSP Catherine and Sharafudheen as Dr Benjamin Louis. The film was a crime thriller that Mollywood had been desperately waiting for. And it didn't not disappoint. The film had many edge-of-the-seat moments. The film explored a string of gory murders that targeted policemen. Sharafudheen played the villain and he says that for him, the role was very challenging as he is uncomfortable doing scenes involving weapons and blood. In fact, he credits Chackochan for motivating him to deliver his best.
