Putting an end to the long wait, Lijo Jose Pellissery directed Churuli will now be released on SonyLIV. The official announcement has been just dropped by the streaming platform, which has already added to the excitement of audiences who were waiting to experience the sci-fi mysterious genre in Malayalam.

Starring Vinay Forrt, Chemban Vinod Jose, Joju George and Jaffer Idukki in prominent roles, the movie revolves around the story of two policemen, who travels to dangerous territory in search of a criminal. 

There are multiple factors to be excited about the movie, in which the director’s legacy is the topmost. LJP has been a known name when talking about unique experiments in Malayalam cinema. Be it Angamaly Diaries, Ee.Ma.Yu or Jallikkattu, his movies have been a visual and intellectual treat every time. Probably, they have also been a first-time experience for Malayalis in terms of the genre and narrative style.

Churuli is expected to bring back the same experience to the table, as the filmmaker himself had hailed it as ‘a labyrinth where you lose track once you enter’, during its screening at the International Film Festival of Kerala (IFFK). It has also been the talk of the town ever since it managed to win nominations to the Asian Film Awards.

Under the direction of LJP, S Hareesh of Jallikkattu fame has penned the screenplay. Madhu Neelakanthan, the acclaimed cinematographer, has handled the visuals while the music is from Sreerag Saji. The movie also features Geethi Sangeetha, Dileesh Pothan, Vijay Babu and Soubin Shahir, among others.

The film will be released on SonyLIV on November 19, 2021.
