Superhero films never really worked in India. Barring the Krrish franchise, other films like Ra. One and Moogamudi failed to impress the audience. Now, another superhero flick is gearing up for the release. Titled Minnal Murali, this Malayalam superhero drama features Tovino Thomas as the lead hero. Minnal Murali skipped the theatrical release and is directly premiering on Netflix. The trailer of the film was unveiled by Netflix India just about a while ago. Going by it, the film looks like an ultimate fun ride.
Minnal Murali deals with the story of a village-based youngster who possesses superpowers. He gets those powers when he was struck by a lightning during his childhood. How he used those powers and how his life turned after becoming a superhero forms the main plot line of the movie.
The trailer looks very good. Be it the locations, characters or sequences, everything looks very rooted. The amalgamation of a superhero story into rural Kerala is quite interesting. Tovino looks apt in his role and so are the other supporting actors. Guru Somasundaram, Femina George and Aju Varghese have played other important roles in the film.
The trailer has been cut very well, accompanied by a funky background score. Overall, Minnal Murali gives us positive vibes right away.
Directed by Basil Joseph, this movie will premiere on December 24th, in Malayalam, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Kannada languages.
