Shylock movie review and release LIVE UPDATES: All eyes on Mammootty

Shylock movie review and release live updates: Here's what celebrities, fans and critics are saying about Shylock, starring Mammootty, Meena and Raj Kiran among others.

Mammootty’s Shylock has hit the screens. The film is helmed by Ajai Vasudevan, who is collaborating with the Malayalam superstar for the third consecutive time after RajadhiRaja (2014) and Masterpiece (2017).

Besides Mammootty, Shylock also stars Meena, Siddique, Baiju Santhosh, Kalabhavan Shajohn, John Vijay and Bibin George among others.

The film also marks the debut of Tamil actor Raj Kiran in Mollywood. Raj and Meena, who had earlier worked in En Rasavin Manasile, will share screen space after a gap of almost 28 years.

Going by the teaser, Mammootty seems to be playing a ruthless and flamboyant money lender-gangster, who likes mouthing Rajinikanth dialogues. Interestingly, Shylock is also the name of the main antagonist, who was a Jewish moneylender, in William Shakespeare’s play The Merchant of Venice. Whether the film is inspired by the play remains to be seen.
