Where to watch Kesu Ee Veedinte Nadhan online?
The movie, which went on floors before the pandemic, had been temporarily halted due to the nationwide lockdown and had completed shooting only this year. The film’s director Nadhirshah had repeatedly expressed his interest of releasing the movie in theatres as the story lent itself to a theatre-viewing experience. Being a comedy entertainer, the filmmaker wanted it to have a theatrical release first.
However, with cases surging again due to the Omicron variant, the makers had decided to opt for a direct-to-OTT release on Disney+ Hotstar. The movie also marks Dileep’s OTT debut.
Kesu Ee Veedinte Nadhan is set to drop on the streaming platform on December 31, 2021 as part of the streaming service’s New Year release. This is Disney+ Hotstar’s second direct Malayalam release after Nivin Pauly’s Kanakam Kaamini Kalaham.
