Trailer for Ahammed Khabeer's upcoming Malayalam film, Madhuram, released today. The film starring Joju George and Sruthi Ramachandran, is about a bunch of strangers who meet, for the first time, at a hospital. As their loved ones fight within hospital rooms, the corridors carry love, prayers and hope amidst these people. As Joju George's character passionately makes jalebis and describes food to his mates, we see Indrans holding on with hope as he says "I cannot bear it when she's not near me."
Many relationships bloom even in gloomy circumstances which helps each of them in different ways.
Joju George was last seen in films like Churuli, Malik and Jagame Thandiram. Sruthi Ramachandran was last seen in Kaanekkaane and co-wrote the segment Ilamai Idho Idho, in the anthology series Putham Pudhu Kaalai on Amazon Prime Video.
