The makers of the Malaikottai Vaaliban confirmed that the Mohanlal starrer is releasing on January 25, 2024, as planned, thus putting an end to speculations on the film getting postponed. Along with the promising poster that confirmed the release date yet again, the team also dropped an official synopsis of the movie, which is now going viral on social media. From the plot, it is evident that a unique cinematic experience is on the cards for the Malayalam cinema audiences.

According to the post which is now doing rounds on the internet, Malaikottai Vaaliban revolves around the titular character played by Mohanlal, who is an ‘uncontested’ warrior who proved himself as a reigning hero across timelines and geographies. He is always accompanied by his aids, Chinnappaiyyan and Ayyanar. However, things take a different turn after Vaaliban meets Rangapattinam Rangarani, an ethereal beauty who is famous for her dancing skills. Around the same time, he also encounters Chamathakan, the antagonist who follows Vaaliban throughout his journey, and leads the hero to his ultimate challenge.
