The first trailer of Mohanlal’s Alone has already seen a rise in expectations for the film, which didn’t have too much hype especially due to the superstar’s 2022 releases. The trailer, which dropped at the stroke of New Year, showed glimpses of the movie’s storyline and the several star-studded cameos, albeit only through their voices, in the upcoming Shaji Kailas directorial.
The video begins with Mohanlal’s character Kalidasan, who is stranded in a flat due to the nationwide lockdown, explaining The Butterfly Effect. He then goes around introducing himself to the other tenants in the apartment complex. We also get to hear voices of Mallika Sukumaran, a tenant in Kalidasan’s adjoining flat and Siddique, who seems to be in charge of the security of the apartment complex.
Soon, Kalidasan starts noticing unexplained occurrences inside his own flat 13A and seeks help from several people. That’s when we hear Manju Warrier’s voice admonishing Kalidasan for his habit of intruding into other’s lives. Kalidasan then says that he believes that flat is haunted, and then begins to communicate with the spirit using a mirror and a few stickers from pre-schooler’s textbook.
This is when he finally calls Prithviraj Sukumaran’s character Hari, who speaks in a thick Thiruvananthapuram accent. In a teaser that was released earlier, it was established that Hari and Kalidasan had met in a jail and in the trailer, Hari has no qualms going all out to help Kalidasan, by meeting a man he asks to, smack in the middle of the lockdown when the cops are around to monitor and take to task anyone who breaks the rules.
Alone, which is scripted by Rajesh Jayaraman, is all set to hit theatres on January 26. Incidentally, this was also the date that the film’s producers Aashirvad Cinemas had launched their first film ever – Narasimham, which was also helmed by Shaji Kailas and starred Mohanlal in the lead. Narasimham hit theatres on January 26, 2000.
