Official: Netflix announces Minnal Murali release date
The much-awaited release date of ‘Minnal Murali’ has been announced. Streaming giant Netflix has announced that the film will be out on their platform on December 24 as a Christmas special.
Directed by Basil Joseph, ‘Minnal Murali’ is a superhero film that has Tovino Thomas in the lead. Planned as a pan-Indian film, it will be releasing in 5 languages – Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Hindi. Sophia Paul of Weekend Blockbusters is producing the biggie.
‘Minnal Murali’ is scripted by Arun Anirudhan and Justin Mathew. The film also stars Tamil actor Guru Somasundaram, Aju Varghese, Baiju Santhosh, Harisree Ashokan, Mammukoya, debutante Femina George and many others. DOP Sameer Thahir, music director Shaan Rahman and Hollywood-based action choreographer Vlad Rimburg form the core technical team.
Though the film was originally planned as a big screen spectacle, the uncertainty regarding theatres reopening in Kerala forced the makers to opt for an OTT release. Reportedly, Netflix acquired the rights for a huge price.
