After delivering the hit film Premam, Alphonse Puthren had not made a film in the last seven years. This makes Gold a comeback film for the director. Alphonse is joining hands with Prithviraj Sukumaran for the first time.
The teaser of Gold gives away no plot hints. It plays more like an introduction video of its characters. It opens with a scene where a few men are trying to reverse a vehicle at late night, in what looks like the backyard of Prithviraj Sukumaran's house. He spots these men and walks towards them to hit them.
In the two and a half minute teaser, a slow-motion shot of Prithviraj walking is shown for more than a minute, with a complementing background score, revealing the characters. Prithviraj plays Joshi and Nayanthara plays Sumangali Unnikrishnan. The names of a bunch of other actors who play pivotal roles in the film like Lalu Alex, Saiju Kurup and others pop up on the screen. The teaser also points out that there will be other guest appearances as well.
