The wait for Mohanlal’s Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham is almost over. With just three days away for the movie to release, its censor board certificate revealing the film’s runtime has found its way online and it’s safe to say that the period movie’s duration is fit for a magnum opus of this kind.

The movie, which is directed by Priyadarshan, has a runtime of 181 minutes – this is three hours and a minute – making it on par with the duo’s previous big budget film Kaalapani, which was also exactly three hours in duration.

The showtimes of the movie for the fans show on its opening day on December 2 have been slotted taking into account the film’s length – with the first three screenings being at 12am, 3:30am and 7am in theatres across Kerala.

The movie, which is touted to be made on a budget of Rs 90 crore, spans from the early 16th century to the late 1500s and focuses primarily on the final 12 years of Kunjali Marakkar’s reign as the Zamorin naval chief when he and his forces fought against the Portuguese troops.

Apart from Mohanlal as Kunjali Marakkar IV and Pranav Mohanlal playing his younger version, the movie has a host of actors from across industries. Manju Warrier, Suniel Shetty, Keerthy Suresh, Arjun Sarja, Ashok Selvan, Kalyani Priyadarshan and Prabhu are also part of the cast of the movie, which won this year’s National Award for Best Feature Film.

The trailer of the much-anticipated film is set to drop on November 30. The team has already released a few teasers offering breath-taking glimpses of the battle sequences and the underlying emotional scenes from the movie, produced by Antony Perumbavoor.
