Mahaveeryar is a fantasy drama set in the period of kings and queens. In this intriguing teaser, Nivin Pauly plays a godman. Asif Ali, Lalu Alex, and Shanvi are a part of the royal family. The teaser shows glimpses of different characters but it doesn’t give away details about the plot.
The lighting plays a significant role in revealing the characters and locations—a silhouette shot of a horse rider, sun shining bright on Nivin Pauly’s face, a shot of the palace at dusk, etc. There is also a court scene set in the modern era.
Though it is in modern times, the king’s soldiers, servants and a huge throne are present in the court, indicating some play with time and history. The teaser presents us with a mix of fantasy, courtroom proceedings and history.
