Joining the ever-growing list of movies revolving around fake godmen is Nayanthara’s upcoming Diwali release titled Mookuthi Amman. The makers of the film released the trailer on the occasion of Dussehra.
In the trailer, Nayanthara looks strikingly beautiful as the titular goddess. The film will have the ‘Lady Superstar’ once again in a divine avatar. The actor portrayed Goddess Sita in Nandamuri Balakrishna’s 2011 release Sri Rama Rajyam.
Mookuthi Amman also stars RJ Balaji, who plays a journalist waiting for a miracle to happen. And that’s when Mookuthi Amman aka Nayanthara pays him a visit, but not without reason. She wants people to learn the real meaning of devotion.
The trailer opens with the dialogue that the one who says he is an atheist is better than the one who claims his god is better than the other’s. The video also touches upon the issue of water pollution, albeit in an interesting manner. We see RJ Balaji’s character asking the goddess, “Your hair should be black but why is it brown like a foreigner?” To which Nayanthara replies, “I am being offered polluted/contaminated water, what do you expect?”
The movie looks like an interesting mix of social drama and comedy. At least that is what the trailer seems to suggest.
Directed by RJ Balaji, Mookuthi Amman will premiere on Disney Plus Hotstar on November 14.
