When it comes to Malayalam cinema, the name which comes to our mind first is superstar Mammootty. Talking on the same lines, the actor's latest release happens to be One that has hit the screens on March 26. Helmed by Santhosh Vishwanath, the film sees the actor essaying the role of Kerala's Chief Minister Kadakkal Chandran. Apart from the lead, the film also stars Murali Gopy, Siddique, Joju George, Nimisha Sajayan and Shanker Ramakrishnan in key roles. And well, the movie's early reviews are out and this can't be true.

As going by the reviews on Twitter, Mammootty's One movie is a total disappointment. Yes, you read that right. While the star's performance has been lauded in the flick, the premise and other elements have been given a thumbs down by the moviegoers. Frankly, the script seems the main culprit.

#One is a badly written & utopian (a)political propaganda with Mammootty being the only saving grace -- as an ideal Chief Minister without any greys or oppprtunism akin to Mahaabali. A textbook example of intentions alone won't count. Tread at your own risk!

✅ #Mammootty As Usual, Stylish 😘
❌Core Idea Was Nice, But Execution Fails Miserably 😪
❌ Weak Script, Direction & Characterisation
❌ Throughout Lagging, UnWanted Sentiments, Lack Of Clapping Moments 😴

One Movie Review
#OneMovie deals with 'right to recall bill' . Avg 1st half & lengthy but exciting 2nd half. Lack of wow factors. Unwanted emotional elements & strong ending.
A cakewalk role for @mammukka .
