Ever since the first teaser of Senna Hegde’s 1744 White Alto dropped, fans have been waiting with bated breath for the movie to release. The film, which has Sharafudheen, Vincy Aloshius, Rajesh Madhavan and Anand Manmadhan in pivotal roles, is now finally ready and locked its release date too.
Unlike Senna’s critically acclaimed Thinkalazhcha Nishchayam, the upcoming film will have a theatrical release and based on the visuals the audience got a glimpse of from its intriguing trailer and teasers, it could very well be worth it.
The film is essentially a cat-and-mouse game between the cops and a couple of thieves. Set in North Kerala, the story kicks off after a man gets himself involved in a case of mistaken identity, when his car gets swapped with that of two thieves. This sends the cops led by Mahesh (Sharafudheen) on their chase, but what happens is a comedy of errors in the film, which is filled with suspense and satire.
Senna in an exclusive interview with OTTplay tells us, “It’s a character-driven film. It’s a cat and mouse chase between people involving a car and the police. That’s the thin storyline it has, but there are a bunch of weird characters coming together. It’s a comedy with crime elements attached to it.”
The filmmaker also explains that it’s a “staged film” compared to Thinkalazhcha Nishchayam, which was rooted to Kanhangad and hence allowed only so much freedom in terms of its terrain, characters and language. “1744 White Alto is a world that we created and so, we had the flexibility of what to include in that world and what we don’t,” he says.
The movie, which is co-scripted by Senna and its cinematographer Sreeraj Raveendran, also has Navas Vallikunni, Arun Kurian, Sajin Cherukayil, Arya Salim, Sminu Sijo and Nilja K Baby. 1744 White Alto is set to hit theatres on November 18. Incidentally, Sharafudheen’s Adrishyam is also releasing on the same day. The latter is a mystery thriller, which also has Narain, Joju George, Anandhi, Athmiya Rajan and Pavithra Lakshmi in pivotal roles.
