3. Malik (IMDB Rating:- 8.3)

Platform: Amazon Prime Video

Malik can be rightly called Kerala’s Godfather. A story of friendship, betrayal, and politics. Fahadh Faasil plays the role of Sulaiman Ali, a criminal with strong moral grounds, and someone who would go the extra mile to do good for his people. One can see Fahadh acting with his eyes and this film in a true sense makes us believe that Fahadh will be the next supreme global superstar. He has done justice to the role and has set yet another benchmark for himself. Watch the film not just for Fahadh, but for the amazing storytelling and direction too. 

4. Bangalore Days  (IMDB Rating:- 8.3)

Platform: Disney+Hotstar

The best actors of the generation came together for Bangalore Days. The film starred Fahadh Faasil, Dulquer Salman, Nazriya Fahadh and Nivin Pauly. It is a rom-com for ages and no matter how many times you watch it, you will never feel bored. Fahadh plays the role of Shiva, a husband with a very moving backstory. His story plays an important role in this film. And goes without saying, Fahadh wins heart with his role yet again. 

5. Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum (IMDB Rating:- 8.2)

Platform: Disney+Hotstar

Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum proved that it is not the stardom that matters but a good storyline that will matter at the end of the day. A film with no hero or villain, a film that completely drives on soul and emotions. Directed by Dileesh Pothan, the film will keep you hooked till the end. It is definitely a rollercoaster ride film and yes not to forget that this film has won the National Award for the best movie of the year. Even Fahadh won the National Award for the best supporting actor in the film. 

6. Joji (IMDB Rating:- 7.9)

Platform: Amazon Prime Video

Fahadh Faasil and Dileesh Pothan lived up to the reputation that they have built for themselves yet again with Joji, a film that was shot keeping in mind the current covid scenario. Outstanding performance by Fahadh and he stood tall in the tale of amorality and the house of intrigue. An adaptation of Macbeth, every character of this film makes it so real that one actually gets engrossed in the film. There are points in the film, where you end up being scared with Fahadh and the bare minimum he does is give a look. The sound effects make the film even more worthy. If quality content is your thing, Joji should definitely be on your list.

7. Amen (IMDB Rating:- 7.8)

Amen is a story of ordinary people made in an extraordinary way. The film is a musical comedy and Fahadh without any doubt portrayed his part with perfection. He is seen in the role of a struggling musician who is in the quest to prove himself and follow in the footsteps of his father. The movie has a script that is at once naively playful and artistically sophisticated. 

8. North 24 Kaatham (IMDB Rating:- 7.6)

Platform: Disney+Hotstar

The movie that fetched Fahadh Faasil his National Award – North 24 Kaatham. Fahadh plays a software engineer in this film who suffers from an obsessive-compulsive personality disorder. Circumstances lead him to take a different path and how he battles with his psychology makes this movie one of the best on the list. 

9. Annayum Rasoolum (IMDB Rating:- 7.4)

Platform: Netflix/ Disney+Hotstar

A simple yet endearing love story of two low-lifers in a busy city like Kochi. This National Award-winning film is a must-watch for many reasons, the first being Fahadh Faasil himself. Before Annayum Rasoolum was released, he had already done villainous roles in the previous films, and with this, he proved that he is capable of carrying out any role given to him. The second reason is the film is really light-hearted and this is something we all need at this moment. 

10.  Trance (IMDB Rating:- 7.3) 

Platform: Amazon Prime Video

The craziest movie you will ever watch. Fahadh Faasil at his best!

Fahadh plays a motivational speaker who finds himself entangled in a web of religion and deceit in this movie.
