“I could only see him in the movie. The superhero faces a supervillain. How can anyone call that man a villain? He is so overwhelmed by love. However, he took the side of the wrong.

Meanwhile, some others recommend films like 'Vanjagar Ulakam', ‘Anju Sundarikal’, ‘Joker’, ‘Jai Bhim’ and ‘Kohinoor’ as some of the must-watch movies of Guru Somasundaram.

Veteran actor Harisree Ashokan too impressed the audience with a unique character. The movie boasts of an ensemble cast of Baiju, Aju Varghese, Vashisht Umesh, Jude Anthany, Mamukkoya and P Balachandran.

He made his silver screen debut in the critically acclaimed ‘Aaranya Kaandam’ directed by Thiagarajan Kumararaja, in 2011.
