The trailer of one of the most exciting Malayalam films of the year and it is, expectedly, brilliant.
It opens to a bunch of boys playing a game of chess on the backwaters of Kochi’s Kumbalangi island. They’re talking about a man (Shammi) who is said to be married to a neighbour. We’re then introduced to the man, played by Fahadh Faasil, sporting his everyman look from Njan Prakashan.
What follows are snippets of the many interesting-looking characters of the film played by actors such as Soubin Shahir, Sreenath Basi and Shane Nigam apart from loads of extremely promising first timers.
The film, directed by Mahesh C Narayanan, is being produced by Dileesh Pothan, Nazriya Nazim, Shyam Pushkaran and Fahadh Faasil.
Shyam Pushkaran, who had earlier written Maheshinte Prathikaram, has written Kumalangi Nights. Interestingly, one of the production houses of the film is called ‘Bavana Studios’, the studio Fahadh’s character runs in Maheshinte Prathikaram.
The film will release on February 7. Watch the trailer here:
