It’s been 20 days since Mohanlal’s Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham hit theatres across the world and almost a week since it dropped on Amazon Prime Video, but the audiences seem to still be watching Priyadarshan’s magnum opus and the film’s team has been pushing out promo materials.

The latest video that the team released online a day ago was a deleted footage of a scene featuring Mohanlal, Mamukkoya, Siddique and Nandu that was set during the celebratory feast at the Zamorin’s palace after Kunjali Marakkar IV’s victory against the Portuguese troops.

The deleted footage had Mohanlal’s Kunjali, Siddique’s Pattu and Nandu’s bannerman in conversation with Mamukkoya’s character of a nobleman. Pattu recognises the latter, who immediately denies. This leads to a humorous exchange between the two that infuriates Mammukoya till Kunjali interjects that he was the one who started the banter. At the end, Pattu asks Mammukoya’s character the number of wives he has and reminds him that the Portuguese would have taken all of them had they won, to which the latter storms off in his quintessential style.

The BTS video also shows Mamukkoya watching the scene on the camera screen along with director Priyadarshan intently. Fans commented that it would have been best if the movie had retained some of the humour as that was one of the director’s strong points.

Marakkar, which dropped on Amazon Prime Video on December 18, has been trending on the OTT platform with viewers streaming the movie, not just in Malayalam but also in other South languages in which it was released. The film released on the streaming service just 2 weeks after its theatrical release – making it the fastest film to hit an OTT platform after its initial theatrical run.
