Dulquer Salmaan on Friday released the trailer of upcoming movie Maniyarayile Ashokan. Besides co-producing the film, he will also be seen in a cameo as a navy officer.

Written and directed by Shamzu Zayba, the film is a romantic comedy that revolves around a man’s struggle to get married. The movie seems to be a comment on society’s marriage centric ideals and also its obsession with fair skin. “He is neither tall nor fair. Even has no looks. I don’t like this proposal, so don’t force me,” snaps a girl, while rejecting the protagonist, played by Gregory, who is also the film’s co-producer.

Maniyarayile Ashokan seems like one of those films that capture the brutal nature of the arranged marriage tradition that weighs heavily on the men, who are exactly not sharp looking like Dulquer Salmaan in a navy uniform.

When the arranged marriage process fails, Ashokan seems to find hope in finding his lady love organically. The 2019 film Thamaasha also dealt with a similar theme about challenges faced by balding men, who desire to get married.
