Oru Mexican Aparatha (English: A Mexican enormity) is a 2017 Indian Malayalam film directed by Tom Emmatty. The film stars Tovino Thomas, Roopesh Peethambaran, Neeraj Madhav. It was released on 3 March 2017 in India.[2][3] This movie narrates how the students established the political party SFY.



The plot conveys communist ideology and madness with political plays that happen between two student political parties, SFY and KSQ.

Set in mid 2000s in Maharajas college, the film is about the journey of two friends – Paul (Tovino Thomas) and Subhash (Neeraj Madhav), and how their attempts to spark a change in the political setup of an institution that has long been run under the student faction KSQ. With this aim, Subhash and his friends start their own wing named SFY, for which Paul inadvertently becomes the face.

Neeraj steals the show in the initial half with his powerful performance as an astute student leader in the making, who has strong ideals. Leading the KSQ party is Roopesh Peethambaran’s character named Roopesh, who is not the in-your-face adversary but a shrewd and calculating antagonist that could actually exist in a campus.

Oru Mexican Aparatha is a movie that the youth could identify with, and also takes an introspective look in student politics and the timely revamp required.



The film was shot mainly in Maharaja's College, Ernakulam and FACT in Kochi.
