While Mammootty’s energy and screen presence as Christopher is worth mentioning, Vinay Rai as an antagonist gets applause, in every scene he appears, Aishwarya Lakshmi, Sneha, and Amala Paul have also given life to their characters in an attention-grabbing manner in this film.

The cool visuals and thrilling background music are other elements that stood out the best in this highly technical thriller film. Director has made this film with such speed and technical perfection that we don’t want to take our eyes off the screen.

There are some minor setbacks in this film, lack of ability to find interesting or new ideas, it is almost like they want to show Mammootty the star in more slow-motion walks and the pattern is highly predictable.


Keeping aside the negligible shortfalls, in brief, Christopher is a mass entertainer that exhilarates and excites from beginning to end with a good movie experience for the audience.
