- Ashique Abu – For Treating a very ordinary Subject in a highly innovative, yet non clichéd Way.
- Shyju Khalid-For making the “IDUKKI MIST” feels at the cinema Halls. Brilliant Light Ups and Shot Selections. Idukki looks absolutely stunning through the eyes of Shyju.
- 5 Teenage Actors who portrayed the childhood Days of the main protagonists. They were brilliant in delivering the dialogues in a relaxed, but in a very controlled and matured manner.
- Dileesh Nair and Shyam Pushkaran- For coming out with cool and realistic dialogues for the script. This makes the Film more engaging and attractive for the audience.
- The Casting Director- For choosing Prathap Pothan, Maniyan Pilla Raju, Raveedran, Babu Antony and Vijayarakhavan for portraying the protagonists and they essayed those characters with a magical Touch.
- Less impressive Screenplay. The writers tried to convey the warmth of friendship and the beautiful pain of nostalgia, but failed to convey those emotions at its best.
- The Script took too much time to establish the main characters. The First Half is all about establishing the plot. It helped in producing a good First Half, but it made the director to run in a superfast speed to finish the things off in second Half.
‘Friendship is the best ever drug you can have in this universe. It has got a special healing power also in it, which definitely can heal deeper wounds’ – This is the message which Ashique and Friends tried to convey and they almost succeeded in it even though, they had some slight flaws in the script.
