Jayasurya is gearing up for his second direct-to-OTT release since the pandemic with Nadirshah’s upcoming thriller Eesho. The movie, which was always set to be an OTT release, also has Namitha Pramod and Jaffer Idukki in pivotal roles.

Shot right after the first lockdown in Kochi and Dubai, the movie is the director’s first thriller after helming comedy entertainers such as Amar Akbar Antony, Kattapanayile Rithwik Roshan and Kesu Ee Veedinte Nathan.

In an earlier interview with OTTplay, Jayasurya had confirmed that the movie will be an OTT release. “It will be a different type of thriller. It will be the most different film in Nadirshah ikka’s career,” he said. The film’s OTT rights were sold for apparently the highest amount for a Jayasurya-starrer. The actor’s previous OTT release was Sunny, which was helmed by Ranjith Sankar.

Eesho’s OTT rights have been picked up Sony LIV and the movie is currently set to hit the platform on August 26. This will be Sony LIV’s second Malayalam OTT release after Aavasavyuham – The Arbit Documentation of Amphibian, which will hit the streaming service on August 4.

On Eesho, the film’s director Nadirshah had earlier told us that the movie was extensively shot during the night. He also lauded the actor’s dedication for his roles, saying that he was impressed with how Jayasurya essayed the challenging role of a polio-afflicted youngster in Amar Akbar Antony and this was a key reason to cast him in Eesho as well.

Jayasurya, whose previous release was the investigative thriller John Luther, is next gearing up to shoot his biggest film yet – Kathanar. The movie, which is an adventure fantasy thriller, is directed by #Home filmmaker Rojin Thomas and will be shot in 3D. The actor had allotted close to four months for the shoot of the movie, which has him in the role of a priest with supernatural powers.
