It tells the story about the intense bonding of two friends, one paraplegic and other a musician. The film released on 2 December 2011 and became a huge success. Beautiful was Anoop Menon's debut work as a lyricist. Menon says his debut as a lyricist was quite accidental. "On the second day of the shooting of Beautiful, music director Rateesh Vega, actor Jayasurya, and I were chilling out in Rateesh's car, when he asked me to pen some lines to try out a tune he'd composed for the film. The result is Mazhaneer Thullikal...," says the actor.
