Nanpakal Neerath Mayakkum is the first film to be produced by Navnira’s talented director Lijo Jose Pellissery with Mammootty in the lead role. Lijo lived up to that expectation when it hit the theaters. The film premiered at this year’s IFFK and had its theatrical release in Kerala on January 19. The film received rave reviews from the day of its release and is still in active discussion among the audience. Now veteran director and lyricist Sreekumaran Thambi has come to the scene praising the film. He says Mammootty’s performance in the film is of international standard.

Nanpakal Nereth Mayakkum is one of the rare films that surprised me after spending fifty seven years of my life for cinema, Sreekumaran Thambi wrote on social media.
