Boss is a money lender and he also helps the producers to make movies and one of such people who get benefited by Boss is the producer Pratap Varma. Although he knows about the Boss, he didn't repay the money lent. Ganapati warns him to repay the money on time, but Pratap Varma didn't care. Besides this, he didn't attend the call made by the Boss and also sought the police help. Pratap Varma thought that he could solve the issues with his commissioner friend, but he had to face the challenges from the Boss.

Star Performance

Mammootty once again proves that he is the Megastar. His dialogue delivery and style are impressive. Rajkiran and Meena have done justice to the given roles.


The movie didn't have a single genre and had comedy, action, sentiment, thrill and revenge. The dialogues might impress Mammootty fans and many dialogues are from Tamil movies that will definitely attract “Rajinikanth” fans and “Vijay” fans. Mammootty speaks Tamil most of the time as he is from Theni district in Tamilnadu. The background score by Gopi Sundar is fantastic, especially Mammootty's BGM. The cinematography by Renadive is astounding. Although it is a commercial entertainer that shows the mass of Mammootty, the performances of the stars are also admirable.

What's There?

  • Mammootty's mass performance
  • Dialogues are the biggest Plus
  • Music and the cinematography are impressive

What's Not There?

  • Logic is missing


Shylock is a complete mass entertainer with all masala elements to entertain Mammootty fans. If you are a Mammootty fan, you will definitely like the movie!
