The Mammootty and Jyotika starrer, directed by Jeo Baby, is slated to hit the cinemas on November 23.
The much-awaited trailer of Mammootty-Jyothika starrer Kaathal - The Core has been released. The film, helmed by Jeo Baby, is an intense drama with Mammootty essaying the role of Mathew Devassy and Jyotika playing his wife. The trailer has been received well by the audience, and the latest note of appreciation comes from none other than actor Suriya himself who has nothing but praise for his wife’s comeback film. Kaathal - The Core is scheduled for theatrical release on November 23.
Suriya on Kaathal - The Core trailer: ‘How do you always get it right my Dear Pondatti!’
In his X handle, the actor shared the newly released trailer, and wrote a note in appreciation of the Malayalam industry for pulling off complex stories with ease. While conveying his best wishes to the team, the actor had a sweet compliment for his wife, actress Jyotika, for ‘getting it right’ with her performances. The actor wrote, “How do you always get it right my Dear Pondatti”.
Mammootty-Jyothika’s Kaathal - The Core is an intense drama
The trailer of Mammootty-Jyothika starrer, Kaathal - The Core, teases a compelling slow burn narrative. Directed by Jeo, the film features Mammootty in the role of Mathew Devassy, a middle-aged family man gearing up for the local panchayat election.
Making a comeback in Malayalam cinema, Jyotika portrays the character of Mathew’s wife. The trailer hints at their two-decade-long marriage, yet the couple appears far from being happy together. Notably, Jyotika, a prominent presence in the trailer, doesn’t utter any dialogue in it. The trailer promises an intense and gripping storyline by Jeo, who is known for his writing in movies like The Great Indian Kitchen.

The film - bankrolled by Mammootty’s home production, Mammootty Kampany - features an ensemble cast that also includes Lalu Alex, Muthumani, Chinnu Chandni, Sudhi Kozhikode, Anagha Akku and Josi Sijo. Mathews Pulickal has scored music for the film, while Salu K Thomas has handled cinematography. The script is penned by Adarsh Sukumaran and Paulson Skaria. Releasing on November 23, the film has also been selected for screening at this year’s International Film Festival of India and International Film Festival of Kerala.
