Puthan Panam is the movie in which Megastar Mammootty plays the lead role. It is helmed by Ranjith who has also penned the script and produced the movie. Now let’s see what Puthan Panam has in store for us.


The impact of demonetization is seen in the country and some of the black money stashers in Kerala are doing what they can to save their currencies. Mammootty is a financier who is also caught in this act. There are also some underprivileged people who are focused in the movie. Besides, what is the role of a young boy in the movie? Watch the movie to know.

Star Performances

Mammootty as usual shines in his performance and his Kasargode dialect is something worth mentioning. Debutante Master Swaraj Gramika has worked in a seamless manner. The debut of him is welcoming. Ineya has a substantial role to play and she does it well. The other cast do what is required of them.


Director Ranjith had earlier made the film Indian Rupee and it had an interesting concept. With Puthan Panam having the theme of demonetization and its effects, the director has carved the characters nicely. But the film loses its shine midway. There are some scenes that are silly.

What’s there?

  • The flick commences in a promising way. The first half will keep one engrossed.
  • Cinematography of Om Prakash captures the visuals of Kochi is a captivating manner.
  • BGM of Achu Rajamani complements with the tempo of the film.

What’s not there?

  • The second half could have been executed better.
  • Though the plot is interesting, the movie proceeds in a somewhat hurried fashion.
  • More care could have been given to editing.
  • There are some scenes that fail to create interest of the audience.


You may not get the real satisfaction of watching a good film; but still it can be considered as an average entertainer.
