If Alphonse Puthren can make his die-hard fans wait for seven years for his next directorial after Premam, what harm can a few more months do? His latest venture Gold, which was supposed to be an Onam 2022 release in September, was postponed after the director couldn’t complete the post production of the film. Since then, the director has kept the audience waiting for the next update, and now it seems that the team is gearing up to announce its release date once again.
As per rumours, the director has reportedly completed his work on the movie and the film’s producers, Prithviraj Productions and Magic Frames, are now eyeing a December 2 release. This is incidentally also the same day that Mohanlal and Shaji Kailas’ Alone is expected to hit theatres.

Alphonse had a few weeks ago completed shooting a few portions for Gold as part of new sequences for the truncated version of the film. A source had previously told us that the Premam director had initially come up with a version that was over three hours long and the producers as well as the distributors wanted this to be trimmed. The filmmaker then had to reportedly reshoot some scenes. Prithviraj, who is also the co-producer of the film, was more than happy to allot dates for the reshoots.
The movie has a bevy of stars as part of its supporting cast. Roshan Mathew, Deepti Sati, Chemban Vinod Jose, Lalu Alex, Krishna Sankar, Shabareesh Varma, Shanti Krishna, Baburaj, Ajmal Amir, Vinay Forrt and Jagadish are also part of the cast of the movie, which is also written by Alphonse.
If Gold does hit theatres on December 2, it will mark Prithviraj’s first release in a busy month. He is also part of Mohanlal’s Alone, for which he has given voice for a character, and has Shaji Kailas’ Kaapa set for a December 22 release. The latter has him essaying the role of a gangster named Kotta Madhu.
