Team FC

Ustad Hotel (2012)

What to write about a film that has already touched so many lives? Anwar Rasheed’s Ustad Hotel showed the world how a Malabar parotta gets made, what a Sulaimani chai is, all the while exploring masculinity and interconnecting food to human emotions.

OK Kanmani (2015)

If you had not swooned to DQ before, this Mani Ratnam romance will seal the deal, setting some major unrealistic expectations for a relationship. Dulquer plays Aditya, a game developer who lands in Mumbai and immediately falls in love with Nithya Menen’s Tara. And their romance unfolds in classic Mani Ratnam style too — amidst the trains.

Charlie (2015)

Dulquer’s Charlie represents unwavering positivity in the face of utmost turmoil. He is a face of true altruism. Through Tessa’s (Parvathi Thiruvothu) eyes, we see Charlie as an urban legend of sorts, a genie who is able to guide her into finding out true desires. 

Sita Ramam (2022) 

The period film sees the long-distance romance between the star-crossed lovers blossom with old-school nostalgia. Sita Ramam brought DQ closer to the Telugu audiences after his riveting performance in Mahanati

Neelakasham Pachakadal Chuvana Bhoomi (2013)

With every new film that Dulquer made in the early 2010s, a new lifestyle emerged. Neelakasham follows the bike journey of Kasi and Suni from Kerala to Nagaland, in the hopes of discovering themselves. And with thee road film, a generation of young adults gravitated towards biker culture.
