The 300th movie starring Mukesh, directed by Alfred Kurian Joseph and co-written by Mathukutty Xavier, is about to hit theaters. The family comedy-drama is slated to hit cinemas on November 24. The film follows the humorous adventures of Philip Abraham and his family.

The Mukesh-starrer also stars Innocent, Noble Babu Thomas, Quinn Vipin and Navani Devanand in pivotal roles.

Now, since the Malayalam comedy is ready to hit theatres, we list 5 reasons to watch Mukesh’s film on the big screen:


1) An Alfred Kurian Joseph and Mathukutty Xavier film

The makers of the film, Alfred Kurian Joseph and Mathukutty Xavier, have previously delivered hit films like the 2019 survival thriller Helen. The film received positive reception for its screenplay and direction and went on to win two National Awards. The trailer also hints at being based on true incidents. Nonetheless, one can expect a quality film from the director-writer duo.

2) Mukesh in a comedy drama

The actor, who has done several comedy films, has been appreciated for his comical appearance and roles over the decades. In Philip's, which is the actor’s 300th film, the Malayalam actor will be seen playing a doting father named Philip Abraham, who manages his chaotic household all by himself. The trailer promises a fun story and adding to its appeal is the actor’s humorous performance.

5) Vibrant cinematography
