The teaser and trailer of Aishwarya Lekshmi’s Kumari promised to take the audience back to a world where superstitions, demons and folklore played a huge part in the lives of the people. The film, directed by Nirmal Sahadev, is now gearing up for release and Prithviraj Sukumaran, who has been attached to the film since its inception, has kind words to say about how it has turned out.

The actor, who is presenting the film under his banner Prithviraj Productions, in a promo video explained that the movie’s director Nirmal, whom he had worked with in Ranam, had come to his house almost one and half years ago to narrate three stories. “I was the one who had insisted him to do Kumari,” said the actor.

Revealing what appealed to him most about the story, Prithviraj said, “‘How long has it been since we heard such a story?’ – that’s what I asked Nirmal.” “You could describe Kumari as a modern-film adaptation of a folktale. It’s an extremely well-made, interestingly shot horror-fantasy-thriller,” said the actor, revealing his review of the film that is produced by Nirmal Sahadev, Jakes Bejoy, Giju John and Sreejith Sarang under the banner Fresh Lime Soda.

The actor also explained that he was “extremely proud to be associated with the movie,” which also has Shine Tom Chacko, Swasika Vijay, Shivajith Nambiar, Tanvi Ram, Surabhi Lakshmi, Rahul Madhav and Giju John in pivotal roles.

The movie is set in two different timelines and speaks about the rituals and sacrifices performed for the protection of a family. Kumari, which is also co-produced by Aishwarya, is the actress’ second Malayalam film this year that has her essaying the titular character. The movie will hit theatres on October 28, along with Basil Joseph and Darshana Rajendran’s Jaya Jaya Jaya Jaya Hei and Suraj Venjaramoodu and Ann Augustine’s Autorickshawkkarante Bharya.
