Prithviraj's 9 released on February 7 and opened to highly positive reviews given the scale and premise of the movie. 9 is a blend of horror, thrill and fiction and is one of a kind as far as Malayalam films are concerned. Prithviraj is a seasoned actor and the audience took notice of his co-star more than him. It is none other than Master Alok who plays Prithviraj's son, Adam, in the film. The young actor's performance was top-notch and he gave a tough competition for an already established star like Prithviraj. Alok gives a matured performance and is impressive in the scenes that he share with his seasoned on-screen dad.
