Malikappuram OTT release date

Malikappuram, after a successful run in theatres, is all set to stream on Disney+ Hotstar from February 15. Starring Unni Mukundan in the lead role, the film was released in Malayalam on December 30 last year. 

The film marked the directorial debut of Vishnu Sasi Shankar, the son of the late filmmaker Sasi Sankar (Kunjikoonan, Mr Butler). While the film did well in Malayalam, it was released in Tamil, at a later date. 

Malikappuram, as the title implies, has a female Sabarimala devotee as the protagonist. From the trailer, we learn that the film revolves around an 8-year-old girl Kalyani who regards Ayyappan as a superhero. Devanandha plays the titular protagonist, who pursues a longtime dream of visiting Sabarimala. Unni Mukunadan's character is a saviour of sorts who she meets during her journey to the holy shrine.

According to the makers, Malikappuram is a family drama with some fantasy elements. The film was scripted by Abhilash Pillai, who penned Pathaam Valavu, Night Drive, and the Tamil film Cadaver.

Saiju Kurup, TG Ravi, Manoj K Jayan, Ramesh Pisharody, Sampath Ram, Sripath, and Alfie Panjikaran are also part of the cast. Vishnu Narayanan is behind the camera. Ranjin Raj is handling the music and edits are done by director Vishnu Sasi Shankar himself.
