We had earlier reported about Unni Mukundan starring in Malikapuram, which marks the directorial debut of Vishnu Sasi Shankar, son of the late filmmaker Sasi Sankar (Kunjikoonan, Mr Butler). The makers released the film's trailer on Tuesday.
Malikapuram, 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, Malikapuram is a family drama with some fantasy elements. The film is 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.
Malikappuram is produced by Kavya Film Company and Ann Mega Media.
