Happy Birthday Fahadh Faasil: Kumbalangi Nights and other must watch films from the actor

South Indian cinema seems to be prospering well and with it, the actors too, have garnered increasing popularity. And today, on Fahadh Faasil’s birthday, we decided to celebrate the actor for his fine work of art.

Interestingly, Fahadh has been one to play multiple roles, each distinct in its own sense. While summing down his acting prowess into a few words is rather difficult, we have some films listed for you. If you are exploring Malayalam cinema, or wish to explore it, this is it for you.

Check out some of the must-watch Fahadh Faasil films, and watch one for the love of cinema:

Super Deluxe

One of the finest films that have been made, one that is indeed super. With a cast that is ever so interesting, the film keeps you hooked. While the language is always a barrier, we are sure that the love for movies will keep you from stopping this midway.

Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum

Fahadh Faasil takes to a rather different role for this one and plays a thief. While he gets caught after swallowing a gold chain he stole, this is a journey inside the police station. The movie is available on Hotstar and is quite the watch.

Kumbalangi Nights

One that is on our watch-list as well, this movie has gained immense popularity over the recent times. A movie like this does justice to Fahadh Faasil’s potential. What is better? The movie gets over the male gaze in ways one can’t even imagine.


Fahadh started talking about this one at a rather later stage, and oh boy, was the wait worth it. While one sure lights up just looking at him, hearing him talk about work is an absolute delight as well. The actor has indeed taken things a notch higher with this movie.


This movie is yet another masterpiece in a rather subtle way. At the age of 30, a man is trying to make himself feel like he is someone and not a nobody. And what he unfolds during his escape to the woods is a story that that is gold (quite literally!).

There is no such thing as enough of reading and writing, or so I believe. While everything else might cause saturation, words always come to the rescue. A writer for a major part of my life, I take things as they come, but not without a pen and paper.
