The makers of Prithviraj Sukumaran and Suraj Venjaramoodu-starrer Jana Gana Mana have finally revealed a promo video that features sequences from the movie, rather than its sequel. Ahead of the film’s worldwide theatrical release on April 28, the team released a pre-release promo that revealed its protagonist Aravind Swaminathan, played by Prithviraj, and the various phases he has to endure in his pursuit for justice.
The video starts with Prithviraj’s character being handcuffed and led away, and ends with a mysterious person stopping him. In between, we get to see cuts of the various phases of Prithviraj’s character Aravind. The makers seem to have used the gap between the film’s several schedules effectively – with the star featuring in at least four different looks in the movie.
The promo also gives us glimpses of Mamta’s character Saba Marian, Shari’s role as Shabana, Suraj’s cop Sajjan Kumar, Sri Divya as Padma and Vincy Aloshius as Gouri. The video hints at a death in the film with Shabana’s character breaking down in front of a pyre.
The Dijo Jose Antony directorial is touted to be a socio-political entertainer. In a recent interview with OTTplay, Prithviraj explained that the film’s content is pan-Indian in the sense that people across the country can relate to. The actor also said that Jana Gana Mana poses “a lot of thought-provoking questions” to the society’s conscience.
The movie also marks Prithviraj’s first theatrical release since the pandemic. The actor, who is also co-producing the film, said he had a legit reason to release the film only in theatres, even though there were offers from various streaming services for its premiere since its first teaser had dropped in January 2021.
“This is because what the movie says, especially the way it conveys that, will work only when there are three factors involved – what you see on screen, what it does to you and what the energy of the people with you does to you,” he said, explaining why Jana Gana Mana is better experienced while watching it in theatres.
