‘Minnal Murali’ coming soon; Netflix with official announcement
‘Minnal Murali’, a much awaited film which was expected to release sometime by the end of this year. Though the makers were keen to release the film first in theatres, the uncertainty regarding when the pandemic situation gets better and things return to normalcy have forced them to opt for a direct OTT release.
The short teaser released by Netflix with the announcement ‘striking soon on Netflix’ on Twitter confirms that the movie is a direct OTT release. But the release date has not yet been announced except they mentioned ‘Coming Soon’. Trade analysts commented that the decision on ‘Minnal Murali’ by Netflix was due to the overwhelming response ‘Kala’ received on Amazon Prime after its theatrical release.
‘Minnal Murali’, produced by Sofia Paul under the banner of Weekend Blockbusters, directed by Basil Joseph, will be released in 5 languages – Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Hindi. Tovino Thomas and Basil Joseph are coming together in this movie after ‘Godha’. As the first superhero film in Malayalam, it is also the biggest budget film of Tovino’s career.
