The new poster of Kaathal - The Core features Mammootty and Jyothika as a bickering couple.
Malayalam superstar Mammootty has revealed a new poster for his upcoming movie, Kaathal - The Core. The poster showcases Mammootty and Jyothika portraying a married couple engaged in a tense disagreement. While the exact intention behind the poster remains uncertain, it hints at the exploration of marital conflicts, aligning with director Jeo Baby's style.
Jeo Baby, the writer and director of Kaathal - The Core, gained widespread recognition nationwide with his thought-provoking film, The Great Indian Kitchen. Despite its seemingly culinary focus, the movie served as a powerful critique of societal exploitation within marriages, particularly concerning women's subjugation. The film sparked significant conversations and challenged patriarchal perspectives, leaving a lasting impact.
Having initially released on OTT platforms during the COVID-19 lockdown, The Great Indian Kitchen ignited intense debates online and dominated headlines. Jeo Baby's skilful use of visual storytelling effectively conveyed the violence and deep-rooted prejudices faced by women, garnering praise for its cinematic language.
Jeo's talents were further showcased in the anthology film Freedom Fight, where he directed a remarkable short film titled Old Age Home, exploring the struggles of ageing with profound nuance.
Given Jeo Baby's remarkable track record, expectations are high for Kaathal - The Core. It is anticipated that the film will delve into pressing social issues from a distinct perspective, delivering a unique cinematic experience. The collaboration between Jyothika and Mammootty in this project marks their first on-screen pairing, adding to the anticipation surrounding the film.
Kaathal - The Core was expected to arrive in cinemas earlier this month. However, the movie is still in post-production and the filmmakers haven't revealed their release plans
In the meantime, Mammootty was last seen in a key role in Telugu spy thriller Agent , which bombed at the box office.
Mammootty is now shooting for Kannur Squad.
