Kasaba teaser beats all pre existing records in M’town. Fastest to 5 lakh views
Megastar Mammootty’s one of the most expected movies of the season, Kasaba is gearing up for release. The movie is touted to be released on 7th of July. Kasaba’s official teaser was released last Saturday and soon word of mouth spread like wild fire. The 29 second teaser views has reached above 5 lakhs in a matter of just 2 days. Reportedly, Kasaba teaser has completed 4 Lakhs YouTube views within the first 20 hours of release.
As per the latest updates, the teaser has broken the record created by Mohanlal starrer Puli Murugan’s teaser within the first 24 hours of release. Puli Murugan teaser has fetched 4.3 lakhs views within the first 24 hours.
Mammootty plays an uber cool cop Rajan Zachariah in the movie, which marks the directorial debut of Nithin Renji Panicker, son of Renji Panicker. Tamil actress Varalakshmi Sarathkumar makes her M’town debut with a grey shaded role in the movie. Kasaba also stars popular actors Siddique, Jagadish, Sampath, Neha Saxena, etc. in supporting roles.
Kasaba was a victim of social media trolling right from the first look release. This turned into a blessing in disguise as the movie soon gained popularity, with the Megastar himself addressing the issue in a sarcastic manner. Mammootty had shared some of the memes created with the first look poster and termed trolls and memes as the modern face of satire.
Mammootty fans are eagerly waiting to see their matinee idol donning back the khaki uniform after 5 long years. The teaser released has also invoked curiosity among film goers also about the characterization of Rajan Zachariah. Since the movie is releasing on Eid holidays , everyone is hoping for Kasaba to set the cash register ringing.
