Great comeback for Roopesh Peethambaran in Oru Mexican Aparatha
Debutant Tom Emmatty’s campus political drama Oru Mexican Aparatha has opened to massive response from the youngsters. The movie is running with packed audience in all the release centres thanks to the positive word of mouth.
Tovino Thomas played the lead role in this movie. As usual his towering screen presence complimented his decent performance. But it was Neeraj Madhav and Roopesh Peethambaran who stole the show. Neeraj Madhav has shown his acting skills in movies like Apothecary and Madhuranaranga, but after that he mostly played sidekick roles. OMA had him in a solid role and he delivered a very matured and controlled performance.
Roopesh Peethambaran was a revelation as the cunning and clever KSQ leader. OMA is his comeback movie as an actor after a gap of 22 long years. Roopesh was last seen before the camera in Mohanlal’s cult blockbuster Sphadikam, where he played the iconic character Aadu Thoma’s younger part. He has also directed two movies, Theevram starring Dulquer Salmaan and You Too Brutus.
Roopesh worked hard to play his character in the movie. He stunned the industry insiders with his amazing physical transformation to play his part in OMA. He is almost unrecognizable in the promo song ‘Katta Kalip’ and the actual movie. He lost around 20 kgs prior to the shoot of the movie and that shows his hardwork. All that hard work has not gone in vain as he is getting widespread appreciation for his performance in the movie.
Looking forward to more from this wonderful actor.
