Malayalam film Manjummel Boys has reignited the “never give up” attitude in actor Vikrant Massey, he said in a video shared by Disney+ Hotstar on Sunday, calling the adventure thriller his favourite movie of the year.

“You know what is more thrilling than a survival thriller film? A survival thriller that’s based on a true story,” the 12th Fail actor said about the film, currently streaming on Disney+ Hotstar.


“Like everybody else, I watched Manjummel Boys and it reignited the never-give-up attitude within me,” Vikrant said, alluding to the “restart” attitude portrayed in his 2023 hit film 12th Fail.

Vikrant said that Manjummel Boys is a story of friendship, will power and persistence. “Its stunning visuals and mind-blowing performances have made it a blockbuster hit,” he said.

“It’s a must-watch for everybody and for me, it’s already my favourite film of the year so far,” the actor signed off.

Sharing the video on Instagram, Disney+ Hotstar wrote, “The film that everyone is talking about! Watch #ManjummelBoys now streaming in Hindi. Don’t miss this one.”

Based on a true incident from 2006, Manjummel Boys follows the story of a group of friends from a small town called Manjummel near Kochi who face a series of misadventures during their vacation in Tamil Nadu’s Kodaikanal. The film, which released in theatres on February 22, is directed by Chidambaram S. Poduval.
