Maad Dad is a 2013 Malayalam film directed by Revathy S Varmha, starring Lal, Nazriya Nazim, Meghana Raj, Lalu Alex, Padmapriya and Dr. Pooja Gandhi.[1][2]



Mohanlal was to play the title role first,[3] but he was replaced by Lal.[4] Also Shweta Menon was first signed for a role but had to opt out due to pregnancy. She was replaced by Padmapriya.[5] Archana Kavi, who was to play an important role, has been replaced by Nazriya Nazim.[6]

Critical reception[edit]

Malayala Manorama called it a good movie.[7] Now rated 1.8 out of 5 stars and stating about artists in the film "Lal, on his part, hams and overdoes things a bit, and his muffled dubbing doesn't ease things either. Meghna Raj and Padmapriya are wasted in roles that do not demand any spectacular histrionics, while Pooja Gandhi does make an impact in a role with shades of grey".[8]
