916 is a 2012 Malayalam drama film written and directed by M. Mohanan, starring Mukesh, Anoop Menon, Malavika Menon, Asif Ali and Meera Vasudev. The film is about maintaining the sanctity of familial relationships.[1]

Plot[edit]

916 as the name suggests[citation needed] focuses mainly on the relationship between a single father, Dr. Harikrishnan(Anoop Menon), and his 12th grade daughter Meera(Malavika Menon). It narrates the events of two closely knit families losing their balance; Harikrishnan's, and Dr. Ramesh's (Mukesh), his wife(Meera Vasudev) and their two children. While Dr. Harikrishnan is an altruist who considers his profession a means to serve society, Dr. Ramesh thinks otherwise. Prasanth(Asif Ali) appears as a romantic interest of Meera, leading her astray into the world of malls, cellphones, and the Internet. The movie comes to a twist when Meera goes missing. [2]
