Unda for me is the best film of the year so far: Ranjith Sankar
Mammootty starrer ‘Unda’ continues to do well in the box office thanks to the highly positive word of mouth. Hitting screens on June 14, the movie opened to largely encouraging reviews from both the critics and common audience. The movie is finding admirers for its strong politics and the various issues that are brought to light without ever hindering the flow of the narrative. Unlike a regular potboiler, it is a politically layered film that touches upon multiple issues which appeals to a wider audience.
Director Ranjith Sankar in his Facebook post has written that ‘Unda’ is the best film of the year so far. Along with congratulating the team, the director also praised Mammootty for taking up movies like ‘Unda’ and ‘Peranbu’. His post reads,
Unda for me is the best film of the year so far.
The most relevant theme!
An outstanding effort!
Congrats Khalid Rahman Harshad Sajith Purushan and the whole team behind!
Mammootty in movies like peranbu and unda should be the greatest examples of most effective use of superstardom in recent times.
Miss it at your own risk.
‘Unda’ is directed by Khalidh Rahman and scripted by Harshad. It tells the story of a battalion of policemen from Kerala who are posted in Chhattisgarh on election duty. Mammootty plays the lead role of an ordinary policeman.
