Malayalam superstar Mammootty's upcoming movie Kaathal - The Core has a release date. The film starring Jyothika as the female lead is set to arrive in cinemas on May 11. 

Kaathal - The Core is written and directed by renowned filmmaker Jeo Baby. Jeo made quite a splash across the country when he made a movie called The Great Indian Kitchen. While the title of the film sounds like a heart-warming nod to Indian culinary skills, it was a biting indictment of society and how it exploits the institution of marriage to subjugate women. The film sort of created a silent revolution as it made the subscribers of patriarchal views cringe in their seats and became a catalyst in starting difficult conversations around women's rights. 

The Great Indian Kitchen had a soft OTT release in 2021 during the height of the Covid lockdown. And it soon sparked massive debates on the internet and dominated news cycles. The movie was widely appreciated for its refined cinematic language as Jep used fewer words and more pictures to convey the violence and generational prejudice against women. 

Later, Jeo directed a short film that was part of an anthology film named the Freedom Fight. Again, he hit out of the park with his evolved storytelling nuances as he examined the pains of growing old in the shot film titled Old Age Home. 

Given Jeo's track record, there are a lot of expectations from Kaathal - The Core. It is safe to assume that this film might be another take on a pressing social issue, presented to us from a unique point of view. 

Kaathal - The Core marks Jyothika's maiden collaboration with Mammootty. Meanwhile, Mammootty is basking in all the praises he has been receiving for his performance in Nanpakal Nerathu Mayakkam. The film is streaming on Netflix. 

Mammootty is now shooting for Kannur Squad
