Pathemari is a shocking remembrance of suffering that people has went through to provide their family a better life. Pathemari will get you on board in an emotional ship and will give you a journey of a life time. Pathemari is stunning not just because of Mammootty and Salim Ahmed, it is also because of the team effort and all those who has worked for this movie has done a brilliant job. Actor like Siddique and Salim Kumar will make you feel proud that these actors are from Mollywood. And of course Mammootty the lead actor of this movie. His transformation for this movie is unbelievable. Acting that he has done for this movie exact and brilliant. The most remarkable thing about Pathemari is that, this movie will stand apart from the usual Salim Ahmed movies.

Pallickal Narayanan (Mammootty) decided to go to gulf country in search of job so that he can see his family live in prosperity. But what he had to sacrifice for that was his happiness itself. Pathemari’s script is built upon the life of Narayanan and the people surrounding him.
Mammotty as Pallickal Narayanan was brilliant. He delivered exactly what needed for the character. Siddique was too good in this movie. He once again proved that he is one of the best in the movie industry. Jewel Mary as Mammootty’s wife has done a fine job.
