The film also stars Sobhita Dhulipala and Shashank Arora.

One of the best films of 2019 #Moothon is releasing today (with subtitles) in Mumbai and Delhi. Please go and watch it. You can’t miss it. @NivinOfficial is outstanding in the film. #GeetuMohandas More power to you. pic.twitter.com/9vUXAtMfHa— Rajkummar Rao (@RajkummarRao) November 22, 2019
#Moothon: starts slow but builds up to a gritty yet moving portrait of life 5 relationships in a chaotic metro like Bombay. Takes a few steps that very few Indian films have taken so far.— Raunaq Mangottil (@RaunaqMangottil) November 10, 2019
However, strongly reminiscent of Salaam Bombay(1988)
And damn! Nivin Pauly can act and how! pic.twitter.com/XoqNnTClrk
I watched #Moothon over a week ago. It hasn’t left my heart. I haven’t struggled to hit my thoughts down on any movie like this. @geetumohandas What have you done! Mulla, Aamir and Ak.. kh..bar! Your world hasn’t left me. I hope it never will.— Parvathy Thiruvothu (@parvatweets) November 15, 2019
I have seen the movie thrice. My one opinion about the movie stays the same: the couple deserved the entire movie. Mulla deserved his own journey in a different movie.#moothon pic.twitter.com/wnSHpwVX0M— Bubbles. (@D_r_o_w_n_i_n_g) November 21, 2019
After Kumbalangi Nights earlier this year, #Moothon is the film that left me with this myriad of emotions. TENDER is the word! One of those films that leave you speechless even if you want to recommend it. Please go and see it on screens!— Dev kinda Ved (@suhansidh) November 9, 2019
P.S : Running with Subs in Chennai

#Moothon is pure brilliance. A director's movie, @NivinOfficial at his career best and Geetu Mohandas is indeed the captain.— Veni (@rebuild_kerala) November 11, 2019
The sheer guts in daringly potraying the marginalised communities away from mainstream cinema! pic.twitter.com/fqzkpENldA
#Moothon was one of those movies that leaves you disturbed and speechless. Geethu what you did with @NivinOfficial will go down as his career best. The sensitive issues you touched, primitive yet a taboo, made us all feel helpless. 🌟🌟🌟🌟— Dr.Beardo (@Half_a_Story) November 13, 2019

#Moothon Review: Bold Subject, @NivinOfficial 's performance, Roshan's performance, @GeethuMohandas 's making stands tall & strong. Not a commercial package, it's a offbeat film with a strong content & strong performances. 2nd half, BGM & DOP 👌🏻— Snehasallapam (SS) (@SSTweeps) November 8, 2019
Kudos to makers 👏🏻
#Moothon : Bold and beautiful. Effective handling of a taboo subject by Geetu Mohandas. Career best performance from Nivin, accompanied well by others. Nothing out of the world, but absorbing for sure.— Muhammad Adhil (@urstrulyadhil) November 8, 2019
The tender moonlit soul beneath all the grit and grime of #Moothon is the real triumph of @geetumohandas and #rajeevravi. So loving crafted!@NivinOfficial you are such a special artist! So much has already been said...but it'll never be Enough!— Vasan 🅱🅰L🅰 (@Vasan_Bala) November 8, 2019
I really liked @GeethuMohandas’ #Moothon. In the midst of the tight, angry, violent drama, there’s a tender same-sex love story narrated in a beautiful gentle way. @NivinOfficial is excellent! Good to see #AnuragKashyap backing the film.— Aseem Chhabra (@chhabs) September 12, 2019
#Moothonreview moothon it's a very practical and realistic movie. Some people may not acceptable with the plot. It's a simple story line with beyond our expectations. Director breaks the typical template drama. Had good experiences with moothon. Hats off to @NivinOfficial— Naresh (@NK_cinephile) November 8, 2019
Different movie!#moothon— Jayan Damodaran (@rarefossil) November 22, 2019
Don't expecte a commercial entertainer.
You will be happy!
#Moothon is Brilliant! Don’t miss this one!— sridevi sreedhar (@sridevisreedhar) November 9, 2019
In a role that not many top heroes would attempt, @NivinOfficial unleashes a sterling show on the screen. @geetumohandas @sobhitaD #MoothonReview @vinod_offl @ShashankSArora #RoshanMathew
