The trailer of Oruthee, set in and around the island of Vypin in Ernakulam, appears to be about an everyday woman who is put in an extra-ordinary tough situation. It begins in the form of a confession, with Navya Nair's character narrating an incident she witnessed. She talks about her NRI husband (Saiju Kurup) and the start of a mysterious event which is then cut mid sentence.
From the likes of it, it appears to be a major secret she is holding back, something that could ruffle many feathers. It also is unclear if Vinayakan, playing a cop, is a supporting or an antagonising figure in the story. When put in a tough space without support, Oruthee feels like a tale about the lone woman who has to fight against powers that be to protect her family. Overall, a trailer that hints at solid plot for a comeback for a much-loved actor (as Dhyan Sreenivasan would attest) to return with.

The film is being directed by VK Prakash and it also stars Vinayakan and Saiju Kurup. S Suresh Babu has written the thriller. VK Prakash's most recent release was the Samyukta Menon-starrer Erida, which also featured actor Nassar. According to the press release, it is said to be about family, love and overcoming personal worries.
As for Navya, this is her return to a Malayalam film after 2012's Scene Onnu Nammude Veedu. Her most recent release though, was the Kannada remake Drishya 2, where she reprised the character played by Meena in the Malayalam original.
