Malayalam superstar Mammootty on Thursday unveiled the trailer of Kavi Uddheshichathu, which is set to clash with his most-anticipated movie Thoppali Joppan and Mohanlal’s Pulimurguan at the box office. The gesture was not lost on his fans who applauded the actor for it.
“Here I’m launching the official trailer of the movie Kavi Udheshichathu. It’s hitting the theatres along with Thoppil Joppan in the same week (sic) All the best Asif Ali and Team,” he said, while sharing the YouTube link of the trailer.
The less than 2-minute trailer quickly takes the audience through different emotions in the film, including love, humour, enmity, competition among others. The video, however, will put a smile on the face of the viewers in the end.
The film is directed by Thomas Liju Thomas, who shot to fame with Ramaniyechiyude Namathil, a short film that went viral on YouTube.
While talking about the success of his short film last year, Thomas had announced that he will soon make a feature film with the Ramaniyechiyude team. And earlier this year, Kavi Uddheshichathu..? was announced by actor Asif Ali.
Besides acting, Asif Ali is also bankrolling the film under his home banner Adam’s World Of Imagination. The film stars Asif Ali, Biju Menon and Naren in the lead roles and has Anju Kurian and Sija Rose as its female leads.
The film will hit the screen on October 8, a day after the release of Thoppali Joppan and Pulimurguan. After missing a few release dates, Thoppali Joppan and Pulimurguan will finally lock horns at the box office on October 7. While Mammootty-starrer is a comedy film, Mohanlal’s is an action adventure.
