On Monday, actors Navya Nair and Soubin Shahir launched the title of their upcoming film, Pathirathri, with a tagline that read, 'One Night, Two Cops.' It marks the sophomore directorial venture of Ratheena, known for helming Mammootty's critically acclaimed 2022 film Puzhu.

Based on a true story, Pathirathri is scripted by Ela Veezha Poonchira-fame Shaji Maraad. The police drama, set in a village in Idukki, also stars Sunny Wayne, Shabareesh Varma, and Ann Augustine in prominent roles. It is produced by KV Abdul Nazer under the banner of Benzy Productions, which has previously backed films such as Varthamanam (2021), Navya-starrer Oruthee (2022), and Ann's Autorickshawkarante Bharya (2022), among others.

As the tagline suggests, Pathirathri will revolve around the incidents happening on one night, centred on two cops. On the technical front, the film has Bramayugam-fame Shehnad Jalal wielding the camera, Sreejith Sarang on the editing table, and Jakes Bejoy handling the music.
