Halal Love Story trailer: Indrajith, Joju and Soubin set out to make a 'clean' film
The trailer takes us through the journey of a group of cinema lovers from Kerala who are passionate about creating their own film
Amazon Prime India has released the trailer of the highly-anticipated Halal Love Story. The footage reveals Joju George as an unorthodox filmmaker, Indrajith Sukumaran as the charming actor Shereef, and Sharaf U Dheen as an unmarried young scriptwriter from an orthodox family named Thoufeek, along with Grace Anthony and Parvathy Thiruvothu in pivotal roles.
The trailer of the comedy-drama takes us through the perfectly imperfect journey of a group of cinema lovers from Kerala who are passionate about creating their own film but are subjected to a few guidelines to make their dreams finally come true. In the pursuit of making a 'film within a film' that suits their beliefs, chaos and confusion follow.
Director Zakariya Mohammed said, “For me, Halal Love Story is a funny, yet beautiful, commemoration of the art of storytelling in all its forms. I am grateful to my co-writers, Muhsin Parari and Ashif Kakkodi, who made this chaotic comedy possible alongside me. With a unique perspective brought to life by our strong ensemble, I am confident that the viewers will enjoy this chronicle that tries to manifest that cinema is for everyone.”
On his character in the film, Indrajith Sukumaran said, “My character Shereef is quite layered. He wants to conquer his passion for acting, but at the same time wants to do right by following his beliefs. The movie impacts him in more ways than the others and in the process, completely changes his outlook towards his personal life. Playing a humorous and complicated Shereef was a phenomenal experience, and I will forever be thankful to Zakariya and Aashiq Abu for giving me this opportunity.”
Joju George said it is always fun to be a part of a comedy of errors. “What was most appealing to me is the opposing views that my character Siraj offers whilst taking on the challenge of directing this Halal film. As my character struggles at every phase, it is the brilliance of the writers who envisioned the comedic charm in the film. It was indeed a wonderful experience to work alongside such an incredible cast and crew.”
