The eponymous coastal village is home to a large fishing community and in this neighbourhood lives Felix, a young man who lost his parents as a little boy and was brought up by Mariyan Aasan (Manoj K. Jain), a local don.
Felix leads a carefree life with Aasan relying on him for everything. There is an attempt on Aasan’s life during the village festival, and Felix is entrusted to catch the culprit. But in the dark night, while chasing the culprit, he is stopped in his tracks by a figure of Mother Mary, and the culprit escapes. He later realises that this Mother Mary was none other but his childhood friend, Salomi, a young and beautiful woman now. Salomi is an Anglo-Indian and her father runs a small provision store. Salomi and Felix soon fall in love but Aasan disapproves of their relationship. While their love is at peril, a miracle transforms Mariyam Mukku into a much sought after pilgrimage centre.
What brings about this change and how does it affect its people? And do Felix and Salomi unite? From the opening scene the visuals are spectacular. Cinematographer Gireesh Gangadharan captures the city of Thangaserry at her different moods. Vidyasagar’s music is another plus. Check out the group song, Kavil, a peppy number that stays with you for a long time. I loved the way this song has been choreographed. It keeps you smiling.
Fahad Faasil is versatile and is in his elements once again. Pushing Aloshy of Iyobinte Pusthakam, his last release, far behind him, Faasil becomes the fisherman Felix. With his lungi tied up, this macho character delights viewers with his naughty streak. Sana Althaf is impressive. Veterans Manoj K. Jain and Joy Mathews perform their parts well. Aju Verghese makes an appearance in the second half of the story but his character is not well sketched. Despite a predictable story, Mariyam Mukku, is an enjoyable entertainer that you can watch with your family.
As for Fahad Faasil fans, this is not one to be missed.
