Netflix India is on an acquisition spree for films from South film industries, especially highly rated Malayalam films. One such highly rated Malayalam film recently began streaming on Netflix. And has quickly become a must-watch film on the streaming giant. Yes, we’re talking about a relatively lesser-known Malayalam film called ‘Attention Please’.
Malayalam film ‘Attention Please‘ is one of the best-rated films from the Malayalam film industry this year. The film has an impressive 8.9 rating on IMDb. It is an edgy thriller, where the entire story takes place inside an apartment and its adjoining terrace. Those who’ve watched the film can’t stop praising the premise, the treatment of the film, as well as the performance of the lead actor, Vishnu Govindan. Various industry people have described ‘Attention Please’ as dark, unsettling, disturbing, ferocious, among other descriptions.
Eminent Tamil filmmaker Karthik Subbaraj was also so impressed with ‘Attention Please’ that he wasted no time in coming on board Attention Please as the presenter of the film under his banner, StoneBench Films.
The official synopsis of ‘Attention Please’ reads: “An aspiring yet luckless filmmaker begins to narrate a series of unsettling tales to his friends, while the evening takes a disturbing turn.”
‘Attention Please’ is helmed by debutant director, Jithin Issac Thomas. It stars Vishnu Govindan, Sreejith Babu, Anand Manmadhan, Jicky Paul, Jobin Paul and Athira Kallingal as lead characters.
‘Attention Please’ released in theatres on August 26, but did not get the love it deserved. Its Netflix release seems to be making up for giving the film the recognition it deserves. Many Twitter users have taken to the social networking site to share their praise for ‘Attention Please’.

One of my favourite Malayalam films of the year comes to Netflix in 2 days. Hope at least now more people will watch it, unlike the pathetic response it was given at theatres. Hope all film journos give it the necessary attention. Hope it has the right subtitles. #AttentionPlease pic.twitter.com/6oFj7Jc0mT

This movie should showed that you don’t need big faces, huge budgets, attractive VFXs to make a good movie. Just a good script and a perfect way of story telling even without it’s pictorial presentation!

Malayalam indie film ATTENTION PLEASE was surprisingly good. An example how innovative storytelling with a terrific technical crew & cast can deliver on low budget. Wish I didn't have to rely on subtitles. It's not gonna be everyone's cuppa tea. Cinephiles, you're in for a treat.
