After a short break from the mass movies, Mammootty is back to action with a commercial potboiler—Turbo.

Movies

An interesting factor in the movie is the relationship between Mammootty and his mom (played by Bindu Panicker). Their camaraderie reminds us of Pothan Vava (2006).

Movies

Midhun Manuel Thomas’s script has all the elements of a commercial entertainer. It has sentiment, comedy, and fights.

Movies

The fight sequences seem tailor-made for Mammootty. Phoenix Prabhu deserves applause for his brilliant action choreography that elevates the flick.

Movies

Other highlights of Turbo are Kannada actor Raj B Shetty’s Vetrivel and Telugu actor Sunil’s Auto Billa.

Movies

The background music by Christo Xavier is apt in the action scenes, The sound resembling a car’s motor used in action sequences elevates the high adrenaline fights.

Movies

It may be noted here that Mammootty suggested Christo’s name for Turbo. The duo worked together for Bramayugam (2024).

Movies

Turbo is a pakka mass entertainer. Mammootty and Raj B Shetty’s combination is a treat to watch on big screens.
