Director: Martin Prakkat
Cast: Mammootty, Lal, Nedumudi Venu, Sruthi Ramakrishnan
A really weak title for such a good movie! I think malayalam directors should stop using English titles for their movies. The titles they choose (Best Actor, Loud Speaker, In Ghost House Inn, Notebook) tell you nothing about the movie, and can often keep you from watching an otherwise good movie. I almost didn't watch this movie because of the title.
Best Actor is about a struggling actor named Mohan (Mammootty) whose dream is to act in movies. His dream is the primary driving force in his life. He visits directors' homes on weekends and holidays to beg for a "chance". They all politely advise him on what it takes to be a good actor, and then send him on his way saying, "We'll call if there's anything that suits you." Tired of all the rejections, he takes a drastic step with hopes of getting a role in a new movie
