 Star Performance

Mammootty has performed extremely well. No stardom… nothing… he has done such a good job. Karthika emotes well as a youngster. People, who had criticized her with her previous performances, would definitely love her performance in Uncle. Muthumani’s performance is highly laudable. She has delivered such a wonderful performance with lots of emotions. Joy Mathew has also performed well as a perfect dad.


Joy Mathew has scripted a contemporary story, about the men in the society and how they are portrayed. Girish Damodar’s direction is flawless and it doesn’t seem to be a debut film for him. The characterization is good and the film gradually showcases the original color of the people. Certain scenes make out heart to beat fast and we will be sitting with the wide opened eyes thinking what will happen next. The cinematography has just played in Wayanad. The greeneries cool our eyes and make us travel along with the film. The film doesn’t project any sexism content and we have to definitely appreciate the director for this.

What’s There?

  • Script by Joy Mathew is superb and Girish’s execution is simply superb
  • Performances of Mammootty, Karthika and Muthumani are highly laudable
  • Cinematography needs a special mention, as it has played a pivotal role in the success of the film
  • The film proved that not all the men are good and similarly not all are bad

What’s Not There?

  • Nothing big as a negative


The film comes with a good message, which had been delivered with lots of thrills. The society’s perception of the men is defined well. Uncle is definitely a must-watch family thriller.
