Take Off, the debut directorial venture of popular editor Mahesh Narayanan is the main release here in Kerala today. It was scripted by him as well. This movie is in the news for a long time as it is been made as a tribute to Late Director Rajesh Pillai who died last year. This film is produced under the banner of Rajesh Pillai Films and it has been bankrolled by Anto Joseph and Shebin Bucker. It has a big star cast including Fahad Fazil, Kunchacko Boban, Asif Ali and Parvathy Menon.

Without any doubt we can say that this film is one of the best ever technically perfect and emotionally appealing movie made in Mollywood. Mahesh Narayanan had come out as a winner all the way. His screenplay and direction were just fabulous and the way he presented the story which is well-known to everyone was just superb.

That has made this film one of the best ever.

The performances from each and every artists were fabulous. Fahad Fazil was just stunning once again and Kunchack Boban was terrific too. But the real star in it is Parvathy who had once again gave a mind blowing performance and it is sure that great recognitions are on her way. Asif Ali played a small role and did well. Prakash Belawadi, Devi Ajith, Joju George, Sidhartha Siva, Alencier Ley Lopez, Anjali Aneesh Upasana etc also done well in this flick.

The DOP from Sanu John Varghese was fabulous and it was one of the highlights of this movie as well. Editing by Mahesh Narayanan and Abhilash Balachandran was superb as well. Songs were tuned by Shan Rahman and background music was tuned by Gopi Sundar as well. The music part from both of them were superb too.

In Total, Take Off is one of the best movie experience you can get and don’t miss this. It will give you the real account of what really append at Iraq in 2014, related to the extraction of our nurses from the War Zone.
