Aaraattu Teaser: Mohanlal’s Neyyattinkara Gopan Is ‘Telugu Cinema Mass’, Film Companion

The ultra mass teaser of Mohanlal’s Aaraattu was launched as a gift to his fans for Vishu. Following the pattern of massive Telugu films, the star gets just one dialogue in the teaser which is entirely filled with Rahul Raj’s booming BGM. We don’t get a glimpse of other characters nor do we get a hint of the plot. The teaser comprises a series of stylish slo-mo shots from the film’s several action scenes.

The only dialogue is surprisingly in Telugu, a huge market for the star. His character Neyyattinkara Gopan says, “Nenu vaadini champesthaanu,” which translates to “I’ll kill him,” a line famously used by Superstar Balakrishna in his films.

Another detail is the number of the vintage car he makes his entry in. The licence plate reads  ‘KLV -2255’, with the number being a reference to the star’s cult classic Rajavinte Makan.

Also titled Neyyattinkara Gopante Aaraattu, the film is co-produced and directed by B. Unnikrishnan. It is being written by Udaykrishna (from the erstwhile Sibi K Thomas-Udaykrishna duo) who had written the star’s blockbuster Puli Murugan. Apart from Mohanlal, it stars Shraddha Srinath, Vijayaraghavan, Siddique, Saikumar, Indrans, Malavika Menon and Rachana Narayanankutty.

Rahul Raj will compose the original songs and background score. B Unnikrishnan had previously directed Mohanlal in the superhit Madambi, apart from Grandmaster, Mr.Fraud and Villain.
