Gold: Alphonse Puthren confirms Prithviraj Sukumaran, Nayanthara-starrer will be a theatrical release

Given the blockbuster that director Alphonse Puthren’s previous project Premam was, it would have been a crime to not release his next venture Gold in theatres. Considering the pandemic circumstances, it wouldn’t have been surprising if the makers did opt for an OTT release for the Prithviraj Sukumaran and Nayanthara-starrer either. Dispelling rumours, the filmmaker himself confirmed on Monday that the movie could hit theatres.

Alphonse along with its stars had released the first look poster of the movie featuring its stellar ensemble cast. Replying to a social media user who had asked how many artistes were there in the poster, the filmmaker replied that the image featured 32 and the rest the audience will have to watch in theatres.

The director also asked the audience not to walk in the theatres expecting a KGF, RRR or Vikram. “Please don’t expect a film like Neram or Premam either. Gold might be similar to Gold but it is unique in its own way,” he wrote, adding that there are more than 40 new characters in the movie.

The film has Prithviraj playing Joshi S while Nayanthara essays the character of Sumangali Unnikrishnan. Apart from the lead duo, the movie has a host of talented actors as part of its cast including Roshan Mathew, Shabareesh Varma, Lalu Alex, Krishna Sankar, Deepti Sati, Jaffer Idukki, Saiju Kurup, Jagadeesh, Shanti Krishna, Ajmal Ameer, Baburaj, Althaf Salim, Chemban Vinod Jose and Vinay Forrt.

The film, which has Rajesh Murugan handling the music department and Bheeshma Parvam’s Anend C Chandran and Hridyam’s Viswath Odukkathil as its cinematographers, is scripted by Alphonse and produced by Prithviraj Productions and Magic Frames.

While the makers are yet to confirm its release date, the director had previously shared that the movie is in its final stages of post production. With Prithviraj also having Kaduva releasing on June 30, Gold is expected to hit theatres only after that.
