Abrahaminte Santhathikal and Neerali expected on Eid
The Mammootty and Mohanlal starrers are among the list of Malayalam films scheduled for release on the festive day
It looks this year's Eid is going to be very special for Malayali audiences. If everything goes well, among the list of films releasing this Eid will be two titles that are eagerly looked forward to -- Mammootty's Abrahaminte Santhathikal and Mohanlal's Neerali.
Abrahaminte Santhathikal will see Mammootty once again playing the role of a police officer after 2016's Kasaba. The film is expected to be a high-voltage police thriller and supposedly revolves around an investigation. Mammootty's character, a police superintendent, is called Derrick Abraham. Director Haneef Adeni, who directed the actor in The Great Father, is the writer, while Shaji Padoor, a debutant, is the director. The film's first look poster was revealed recently.
Meanwhile, Mammootty's Uncle has been confirmed for release on April 27.
Neerali will be Mohanlal first big release of 2018. The film's stills and first-look motion poster have aroused a lot of curiosity among observant viewers who are floating all sorts of theories on social media regarding the film's subject matter. The news that's been doing the rounds lately is that there will be a significant amount of CGI in the film -- some say more than in Pulimurugan.
Apart from Mohanlal, Neerali also stars Nadia Moidu as the heroine. Director and editor Ajoy Varma is making his Malayalam debut with this film.
