Megastar Mammootty as Shylock
Mammotty is an immensely talented actor and his character is the USP of the film. Although the Megastar plays the lead, he isn’t the ‘hero’ of the movie. He surely plays the lead, but the character he plays is a bit crooked. Mammootty plays a ruthless moneylender and hence the movie is titled ‘Shylock’. Mammootty’s character of Shylock is said to be inspired by a character by the same name from Shakespeare’s ‘The Merchant of Venice’. Well, we have already seen in ‘Vidheyan’ how Mammootty performs while playing the ‘bad guy’. Even if you can’t expect an intense character like Bhaskara Pattelar or Kunnathu Ahmed Haji, ‘Shylock’ will surely present a tough guy, a ‘lovable villain’ who you will fall for in the end. Mammootty portraying the rich miser must not be missed.
