Mohanlal's National Award winning movie Marakkar headed for OTT release

Tuesday, October 26, 2021 • Malayalam Comments

After six months, theatres across the state of Kerala opened and are set to resume functioning from Wednesday with Daniel Craig’s last Bond movie 'No Time To Die'. However, Malayalam movie buffs are eagerly waiting to know the release of Mohanlal's much-hyped epic movie 'Marakkar: Lion of Arabian Sea', directed by Priyadarshan. Now, the latest is that the producers of the movie are mulling an OTT release.

In a media interaction, the film's producer Antony Perumbavoor said that he was exploring all options, including a possible OTT release. "See, this film has been long delayed and we just cannot afford to wait anymore," Preumbavoor said on the sidelines of the National Film Awards presentation at Vigyan Bhavan in New Delhi on Monday. "We have talked to Amazon Prime. If the decision is made to go the OTT way, then there will not be any theatrical release," Antony added. On Monday Antony received three National Film Awards — for the Best Feature Film, Best Special Effects and Best Costume - which the "Marakkar, the Lion of Arabian Sea" had won.

Set in the 16th century, the movie has Mohanlal playing the titular role of Kunjali Marakkar IV. The epic film also stars Manju Warrier, Sunil Shetty, Keerthy Suresh, Arjun Sarja, Suhasini, Prabhu, Siddique, Nedumudi Venu, Innocent, Mukesh, Pranav Mohanlal, and Kalyani Priyadarshan in important roles.
