Expectations are bound to go after these highly positive reviews. Hey Jude marks the Malayalam debut of leading South Indian actress Trisha. Nivin Pauly’s character Jude is an oddball with an eccentric nature. The movie is a coming of age drama about Jude’s discovery of himself.
Hey Jude has Trisha playing the role of Crystal Ann Chakkaraparambu, a free spirited young woman. The movie showcases the events that occur when two such people end up in a relationship. It is about how love and understanding transforms Jude’s life. It is a story of love, healing and self discovery.
The movie is a breezy musical romantic tale set against the backdrop of sea. Since music is a major element in the movie, four different composers tuned the songs – Ousepachan, Gopi Sunder, Rahul Raj and M Jayachandran. Girish Gangadharan, noted for his works in films like Guppy and Angamaly Diaries, is the cinematographer.
Hey Jude is being produced by Anil Kumar under the banner of Ambalakkara Global Films. The movie will be released acorss Kerala on February 2 through E4 Entertainment. It is also releasing in a good number of screens in ROI centres like Chennai and Bangalore tomorrow.
