It seems that director Alphonse Puthren’s much-awaited Gold will take its time to hit theatres. While the makers had said that the movie might hit theatres a week after it had postponed its September 8 release date, the filmmaker recently revealed that work on the movie is still pending.

Replying to a social media user’s query of Gold’s release date, Alphonse said that “some more work is pending”. “A bit of CG, a bit of music, a bit of colouring… some minor works are remaining… once all that is over, I will announce the date,” he said, apologising for the delay.

The filmmaker also revealed that the theatre exhibitors had suggested releasing the film during Onam, but work on the film, starring Prithviraj Sukumaran and Nayanthara, was incomplete. “Nobody will like uncooked food,” he wrote.

This is not the first time that Alphonse Puthren’s film is missing its announced release date. Premam too had multiple delays before it finally hit theatres and became a blockbuster in 2015.

Incidentally, the producers of Gold, Magic Frames, had last week said on social media that they wouldn’t be able to announce a new release date until they are handed over the first copy by Alphonse after he completes all work on the film.

The movie, which is touted to be an entertainer, has an ensemble cast and marks Alphonse’s comeback directorial after seven years. Apart from Prithviraj and Nayanthara, the film also has Baburaj, Shammi Thilakan, Deepti Sati, Roshan Mathew, Ajmal Amir, Lalu Alex, Chemban Vinod Jose, Krishna Sankar, Shanthi Krishna, Mallika Sukumaran, Shabareesh Varma and a host of other surprise cameos.

In an earlier interview with OTTplay, Ajmal Amir had said that Gold is a fun film. ““Gold has a unique genre. We have seen it in a lot of English films, but it’s probably the first time in Malayalam.”
