Thanneer Mathan Dinangal impressed me the most in 2019: Dileesh Pothan
Dileesh Pothan is easily one of the most revered filmmakers in Malayalam cinema today. Although just two films old, he enjoys a great fan following among the new age cinephiles. The fact that both his films went on to win awards at the National level also means that his works are eagerly awaited by many.
In a recent interview, when Dileesh Pothan was asked about his last year’s favourite film, he said it was ‘Thanneer Mathan Dhinangal’ (TMD) that impressed him the most. Directed by debutant Girish AD, TMD had Vineeth Sreenivasan and a bunch of teenagers in the lead roles. The film was a sensational success at the box office raking up close to Rs 50 crores. Apart from being a commercial blockbuster, it was a critically acclaimed film as well.
An appreciation of this sort coming from a two-time National award winner like Dileesh Pothan will be a huge booster for team ‘TMD’
