With these contexts, the drama begins and goes on a roller coaster ride with lots of family drama in the past.

The reason behind why this movie in the list of the “Best Malayalam Movies of 2019” is because Jenuse Mohamed has brought something new to the Indian Film Industry. Nine received well from the critics and the class moviegoers but hard to find a large audience in the theatre, and failed to recover it’s budget however the movie is well cinematographed and fine crafted CGI works for a Malayalam movie. Nine is about, a global crisis arises when a comet passes very near to the Earth for 9 (Nine) days. How this affects astrophysicist Albert Lewis (Prithviraj) and his son Adam’s ‘Adam’ life forms the story. The movie satisfied you all along the journey where most of the Indian Sci-Fi Movie fails.
