Any update on director Alphonse Puthren’s projects are much awaited, and what makes it even more exciting is that the filmmaker has never been shy to engage with social media users, answering their questions and also sharing tips.

On Monday, when the filmmaker shared the first look poster of his upcoming film Gold, which has Prithviraj Sukumaran and Nayanthara in the lead, many were quick to comment that the image was “inspired” from the poster of Hollywood movie Everything Everywhere All at Once, starring Michelle Yeoh.

Both vibrant posters featured the protagonist at the base with the rest of the characters placed in the circumference in an almost kaleidoscopical design. In fact, the poster of Gold had 32 characters from the film.

Never the one to be short of words, Alphonse, this time, countered the argument that his poster was copy of the 2022 comedy-drama, by sharing the poster of his debut venture Neram, which hit theatres in 2013. Neram’s poster too had the similar design but only with limited set of characters.

That wasn’t all, the filmmaker’s fans too quickly jumped in support by sharing other posters from the Malayalam film Double Barrel, which had also released before Everything Everywhere All at Once. The latter, which won widespread acclaim after its release, revolved around alternate realities and multiverses.

In reply to a query of an user whether Gold too has multiverse concept, Alphonse said that it’s a too big of a concept for him. “It is very simple. It is my film. I hope you will like it,” said the director. In an earlier interview, Ajmal Ameer, who is also part of Gold, told OTTplay, “Gold has a unique genre. We have seen it in a lot of English films, but it’s probably the first time in Malayalam.”
