Watch out for Sharafudheen’s career best performance in Varathan!
Fahadh Faasil-Aishwarya Lekhsmi starrer Varathan is doing extremely well in theatres. Releasing on last Friday, the movie opened to highly positive reviews from both the critics and the commoners. Amal Neerad’s films have always had big following among the youth audience and its no different for Varathan also. Youngsters are thronging theatres in large numbers to watch this stylishly shot revenge-drama.
While Fahadh Faasil, Aishwarya Lekshmi and Amal Neerad deliver what was expected of them, it is Sharafudheen who leaves the audience awestruck. The actor who was getting typecast in sidekick roles has broken the shackles to deliver a remarkable performance. He was surprisingly menacing while playing a character with negative shades. Right from his introduction scene, Sharaf brings to fore the unseen side of his. Due credits to director Amal Neerad also for breaking the stereotypes and offering Sharaf a character out of his comfort zone.
Glimpses of Sharafudheen’s caliber was seen earlier this year in Venu’s Carbon and Jeethu Joseph’s Aadhi. Both the films had him playing the usual hero’s friend’s role, but they were unlike the goofy sidekick roles. In Carbon, even with the limited screentime Sharaf manages to leave a mark. With the unanimous appreciation for his performance in Varathan, Sharafudheen is expected to bag some meaty roles in upcoming projects.
