Moothon has a number of interesting characters that get their moment to shine but it is Nivin Pauly’s Bhai that steals the show. The actor does things we’ve never seen him do.
Though the two male leads do a really good job, the film clearly belongs to Taapsee’s Rumi. She is without a doubt one of the more interesting characters to come out of Hindi cinema in the recent past and it is hard to think of anyone else in that role. The way she buzzes around with this crackling energy is a sheer joy to watch. She internalizes the character to such an extent that every time we see her on screen, we only see Rumi.
