The release of Minnal Murali was delayed by over a year owing to the pandemic. As Kerala continues to record a high number of cases, the filmmakers were forced to choose the OTT route for the film. Recently, Fahadh Faasil’s gangster drama Malik and Prithviraj’s Kuruthi were among the Malayalam movies that opted for a direct OTT release.
Director Basil Joseph of Godha fame has helmed Minnal Murali from a script written by Arun Anirudhan and Justin Mathew. The film also stars Aju Varghese, Harisree Ashokan, Baiju Santhosh, Bijukuttan and Guru Somasundaram.
