Manu Warrier’s Prithviraj-starrer Kuruthi is all set to hit OTT from tomorrow, August 11. The Malayalam political thriller will be released globally on Amazon Prime Video. One of the most-awaited movies of the season, it has Roshan Mathew, Mamukkoya, Murali Gopy and Shine Tom Chacko in the cast list. Though the makers had initially planned for a theatrical release in May 2021, they had to cancel the plan owing to the pandemic. 

Here are a few reasons why you should not miss watching Kuruthi:

The stellar cast


Kuruthi’s cast is something that attracts movie lovers first, thanks to the number of talented artists in it, who are known for their intense performances. Besides the lead, essayed by Prithviraj, the movie has Roshan Mathew, Srindaa, Murali Gopi, Shine Tom Chacko and Mamukkoya in the list, who all have meaty roles to play. Roshan Mathew has become quite popular in recent times, with his selection of unique and diverse roles. His recent anthology, Aanum Pennum, was noted for its storytelling and performances of lead actors. Similarly, Shine Tom Chacko was seen in outstanding roles in Ishq and Love, which left the audience in awe. While these talented actors share screen space in a thriller, nothing more is expected than a gripping tale, which will offer an edge-of-the-seat experience for the audience. 

A new experiment in Mollywood

The Mollywood industry is currently being appreciated by film buffs across the country for its diverse content and unexplored themes. Celebs from other film industries of late have been pouring praises on the industry, thanks to films like Malik, Kala, The Great Indian Kitchen and Nayattu among others. Kuruthi is considered as an experiment in terms of storytelling, characters and staging, and viewers have pinned high hopes on it.

The unique storyline

The storyline of Kuruthi is another reason which makes it a much-awaited flick among cinephiles. The movie is about how far human relations will bear and cross the boundaries to survive the trails of prejudice and hate. The film’s trailer hints at a gripping and intriguing narrative that will make anyone curious to know about the journey of its characters and emotions.

Mamukkoya’s legacy


Veteran actor Mamukkoya’s presence makes Kuruthi more special. The actor, who has an experience of having acted in more than 400 Malayalam movies, is a recipient of State Award for Best Comedian. Having made his debut in the ‘70s, needless to say, he has worked with many generations of actors and has been a vital force in Malayalam cinema’s growth, especially in the ‘80s and ‘90s. He has done some memorable roles and has provided a lot of entertainment to the Malayalee audience over the decades. His comeback with Prithviraj is another reason which makes people wait for the film.

Onam release

Onam releases have always been special for Malayalees, but the audience missed the fun last year, too, due to the pandemic. This time, when Kuruthi reaches them through the OTT platform, movie buffs are elated that they get to watch the film with their friends and family, thus making the festival more special.

So, along with the Onam shopping list, add Kuruthi to your cart, if you are a fan of thriller films.
