Mammootty’s films and social media posts have been setting records this year – be it his ultra-cool look for Puzhu or for being the first film of a Malayalam superstar to hit theatres after the lockdown. Now, the Hindi dubbed version of his political drama One that is available on YouTube has clocked over a million views in three days.
The dubbed version of the film, directed by Santosh Vishwanath, crossed the 1 million mark on its second day. The movie is streaming on Sunshine Movies’ YouTube channel. The channel had also released the Hindi-dubbed version of Mohanlal’s Big Brother in May and it has crossed 27 million views.
One had Mammootty playing the role of Kerala chief minister Kadakkal Chandran in the film, which was scripted by Traffic and Uyare writers Bobby and Sanjay. The movie showcased how an ideal CM should be through Chandran and his interactions with a family, whose members were played by Salim Kumar, Gayathri Arun and Matthew Thomas.
The movie, which was Mammootty’s second theatrical release this year after The Priest, also had a huge star cast including Murali Gopy, Sudev Nair, Joju George, Nimisha Sajayan, Madhu and Krishna Kumar. The original Malayalam film is currently streaming on Netflix.
Meanwhile, Mammootty will complete Amal Neerad’s Bheeshmaparvam and join the sets of Ratheena Sharshad’s Puzhu next. The latter’s music director Jakes Bejoy had earlier told us that his character isn’t a ‘mass hero’ but more in the lines of the role the megastar played in Vidheyan. Mammootty also has the fifth film in the CBI franchise lined up. He will reprise his role as Sethurama Iyer in the film scripted by SN Swamy and directed by K Madhu. The sleuth will be investigating a case revolving around ‘basket killings’.
