Not just fans, celebrities are also eagerly looking forward to Prithviraj’s 9
We are just three days from the release of Prithviraj Sukumaran’s highly anticipated film, 9. The movie directed by Jenuse Mohamed promises to be a first of its kind experience for the Malayali audience. According to the makers, it is a film with elements of horror, psychological thriller and science fiction. Prithviraj, who is known to be experimental with his choices, has taken the next step by even producing 9.
The pre-release promos have all been super impressive and have been instrumental in raising the curiosity of the audience. The movie’s sneak peak videos have extraordinary visual quality that is hitherto seen in Malayalam. Not just the fans, even industry insiders are eagerly waiting for the movie. Actors Parvathy, Tovino Thomas and Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar have all pinned high hopes on the movie.
According to Prithviraj, it is hard to bracket 9 to one particular genre. It has several layers and concepts but at the core of which is an emotional father-son bonding. The story unfolds in the backdrop of a massive global event that lasts nine days. What happens over this course of period forms the plot.
Prithviraj plays the role of scientist Albert Lewis and child actor Alok plays his son, Adam. Prakash Raj, Mamta Mohandas, Wamiqa Gabbi, Tony Luke, Rahul Madhav and Adil Ibrahim form the supporting cast. Prithviraj Productions is funding the movie jointly with Sony Pictures International Productions. The movie is scheduled for a grand release this Friday (February 7).
