    I discovered or rediscovered Malayalam movies only couple of years ago. Happened to watch Bangalore Days without knowing anything about the cast. What a movie!

    For me, hands down, Fahadh is the better actor. Though both are such great actors that one cannot imagine anyone else doing the role that each does in a given movie.

    Just googled for his filmography and turns out his Bangalore Days co-star is his wife!

    True. Fahadh's movies also stay in the mind long after one is done watching them.

    Same here. I watched very few Malayalam movies when I was in India.
    But from past few years I got addicted to Malayalam movies so I watched many, thanks to subtitles.

    Fahadh is a very brilliant actor. I feel he is not very much into hero centric movies but rather into character oriented movies. Not many heroes would take such risks.

    Dulquer is also a good actor but he is mainly known for hero centric roles. Although I adore him for his stylish looks and he is just too handsome :hearteyes:

    So my vote definitely goes to Fahadh Faasil for best actor.

    These opinion based questions are easier to answer if it’s a poll without much confusion :grinning:

    How about adding Prithviraj to the list?

    Any good movie recommendations. Haven't seen much recently other than Drishyam and couple of Prithviraj thrillers ( Memories, Mumbai Police, 7th Day )

    @Thoughtful Ayyappanum Koshiyum is a must watch movie.

    I vote for Fahadh. He seems to be a good fit for common man characters/roles in movies.

    Fahad, I think is a notch above than others. He can be a nerd ,an innocent hero, a disgusting villain.. all fabulous. My favorite ones are Maheshinte pratikaram, Amen, North 24 Katham, 22 female Kottayam, Thondimuthalum driksakshiyum etc..
    I like his wife Nazriya too.
    Funniest thing is long back when Fahad was launched by his dad Fazil in a romantic movie, so many people ( me too) thought he was pathetic. He then took a long break and came back with a blast. It’s true that they say” Never judge a book by its cover.”

    I vote for Fahad as best actor
    I also like Pritiviraj - acting and looks..
    Dulquer is charming :)

    I like the vellaikaran tamil movie only because of Fahad's performance. loved his kumbalangi nights!

    Fahad , definitely for me he can do any role and doesn't mind infusing it with a good deal of negativity. He proves that perfect men and perfect heroes don't exist , just like in real life it takes guts to do such roles without caring for your image. Right from his movie Chappa kurushu , diamond necklace . we can see this to Kumbalangi nights (must watch)
    Whereas dq is aware of his image and his dad's son he won't do roles with negative dark aisides that often.. And since he was born in chennai etc he's more interested doing roles in Tamil mo money mo fame. I liked only his Charlie movie all else was meh. And it was Parvathys movie more than his.
