The makers of Mammootty’s Christopher seem to have saved the best teaser for last. The pre-release teaser of the B Unnikrishnan directorial hints at an investigative thriller that is packed with enough slick action pieces to appeal to die-hard Mammootty fans as well as the general audience.
The 34-second teaser shows glimpses of how Mammootty’s titular character interferes with the work of other cops as well, taking the law into his own hands to deliver justice. The images that also flash as credits highlight crimes against women – sexual assaults and acid attacks.

The video doesn’t reveal more than what the megastar has already said during the promotions of the film, but it highlights Shine Tom Chacko’s character of DySP, who seems to be at loggerheads with Christopher.
In an earlier interview, Mammootty had said that what attracted him to the film was the true incidents that formed the base of Christopher. “Some heroes don’t exist, they are someone we give shape to in our minds – What if such a person existed? Christopher is such a character,” said Mammootty. The actor also said that he plays a character who takes matters into his own hands, when the system he is part of fails to function right and deliver justice.

Apart from Mammootty, the movie also has Tamil star Sarath Kumar in a pivotal role. Sneha and Vinay Rai are the other Tamil actors who are part of the big budget thriller, which is scripted by Udaykrishna. Aishwarya Lekshmi, Amala Paul, Dileesh Pothan, Deepak Parambol and Jinu Joseph are also part of the cast of the film, which is set to hit theatres on February 9.
Christopher will clash with Mohanlal’s Spadikam, which will be re-released in 4K Dolby Atmos format. The former’s OTT rights have already been sold to Amazon Prime Video.
