More About Midhun Manuel Thomas

The writer director who previously gained a lot of recognition for his recent work was ‘Abraham Ozler’, A psychological medical crime thriller film, the film emerged as a blockbuster in the Indian box office and gained immense parise for the audience and critics.

The Times Entertainment gave it 3 stars out of five and saying, “Jayaram starrer Abraham Ozler turned out to be an interesting watch and can undoubtedly be seen as a new phase in the actor’s career. The story revolves around a murder investigation done by Jayaram’s character, Abraham Ozler. The actor gives a grounded performance as the cop who also went through his own personal tragedies and is relentless in his pursuit for a serial killer. Director Midhun Manuel Thomas delivers a thriller that’s a little different and keeps one guessing the how of everything till the end.”

Previously in an Interview with Film Companion Midhun says about the casting process, “Even when I was making Anjaam Pathiraa (2020), I wanted to cast someone who had previously not done a dark subject matter. That aspect itself infuses some freshness into the narrative and that’s why I cast Kunchacko Boban in the lead. Similarly, for Abraham Ozler, I wanted to cast someone who would feel fresh for the part. I liked the character of Ozler who is a senior police officer weighed down by a tragic past. It’s a very complex character and so I needed a seasoned actor but also someone who looks fresh in such a milieu. So we wanted to rope in Jayaram sir.” 

Later on, Midhun adds, “Jayaram sir was doubtful whether I really had him in mind for this character. But I told him that he was my Ozler and there was no turning back now. He even called me again to see if I was really convinced. I told him we came looking for the story and since you liked the story, there is nothing else to think about. I also quipped that if he wasn’t doing the film, I might even drop the project altogether. That’s how he finally agreed.”
