Nivin Pauly on Friday announced the release date of his upcoming film Moothon. Directed by Geetu Mohandas, the movie will hit screens on November 8, two months after it premiered at the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival.
Mohandas has co-written the film along with Bollywood filmmaker Anurag Kashyap.
“So much hard work and preparations went into the making of this film. I must appreciate the efforts of Geetu Mohandas, who is the director of Moothon and the production team that includes Anurag Kashyap and of course the technical team lead by the phenomenal Rajeev Ravi. This is a movie that will surely excite the audience when it will releases worldwide,” Nivin had told indianexpress.com earlier.

Moothon has generated a lot of curiosity among filmgoers, thanks to the way Nivin Pauly is presented in the film. With a scar on his face, the actor looks menacing, which is a far cry from the boy-next-door charm that made him a hit with the Malayalam audience. The film is said to follow the journey of a young boy who sets out from an island to find his long lost elder brother.
The movie received a positive response at Toronto and also garnered appreciation at the recently concluded Mumbai International Film Festival. The film boasts of an all-star cast including Sanjana Dipu, Sobhita Dhulipala and Roshan Mathew among others.
