I am not the one to rate Parvathy’s performance: Fahadh Faasil
Editor Mahesh Narayanan’s directorial debut Take Off has entered it’s second week of theatrical run and is continuing it’s glorious run in all the release centres. The movie starring Parvathy Menon, Kunchako Boban, Fahadh Faasil and Asif Ali in major roles was opened to overwhelmingly positive reports.
The movie is inspired from real life incidents where a group of Malayali nurses were trapped in the Tikrit region in Iraq during the ISIS attacks in 2014. Take Off is a fictionalized account of the same. It is jointly written by Mahesh Narayanan and PV Shaji Kumar
The movie is rated by many as a landmark in Malayalam cinema. The visuals, setting and the total magnitude of the film was something that is unseen in a Malayalam movie.
Apart from being a true story and the brilliant technical values, another major asset of the movie was the marvellous performance of the lead actors. Fahadh Faasil who played the role of the Indian Ambassador, in a recent interview shared his views on the performance of all the actors.
He said, “Kunchako Boban’s character had a lot of depth and it was a layered one. Asif Ali delivered a very matured performance eventhough it was a very brief role. I am not one to rate Parvathy’s performance. Her transformation into the character is truly incredible.”
Parvathy was the soul of the movie. The whole movie revolves around her character Sameera. The fact that she played the protagonist in a movie that had three other leading actors from Mollywood itself proves how brilliant an actress she is. Parvathy was remarkable as the determined Sameera who bares the burden of her family debts and the helpless wife who is willing to go any extent to get back to her husband. Appreciation has been flowing in for her from all quarters.
Take Off, meanwhile has grossed 6.7 crores from the first week according to reports from trade sources. The movie was funded by Anto Joseph and Shebin Becker in association with Rajesh Pillai Films.
