The most-awaited Minnal Murali, which marks the debut superhero movie in the Malayalam industry, will offer an exciting and thrilling supervillain. According to the actor Guru Somasundaram, his character in Minnal Murali can be a supervillain in Malayalam cinema.

In a recent chat with Indiaglitz, actor Guru Somasundaram talked about the most-awaited Basil Joseph directorial film, which stars Tovino Thomas as the lead.

The actor was excited to talk about his role and said that he was shocked when he heard the story. Though many others could be fitting into the role, he is delighted that he got to be the first supervillain of Mollywood’s first superhero movie. 

A fan of James Bond movies, he says he finds the villains in those films very thrilling and exciting, and that’s what he expects to offer in the film Minnal Murali. “South Indian audience, especially Malayali audience will be having their supervillain according to the flavour in this movie,” he said.

Talking about the importance of content in Mollywood, the actor shared his observation. He said how a writer is given a separate space in the industry. “A writer is present at all times, right from when I heard the story to the shoot sequences, which helps to give the characters their perfection,” the actor told the portal.


Actor-director Basil Joseph has proved to be one of the finest directors with two of his movies Kunjiramayanam and Godha, which turned out to be big hits. Talented actor Tovino Thomas plays the role of a homegrown hero with superpowers and that is a unique concept, not seen in the industry. 

Aju Varghese and Harishree Ashokan will also be seen in pivotal roles in the movie.

Though the release date is yet to be announced, the makers have confirmed that the movie will premiere on Netflix. It will also be released in multiple languages simultaneously including Malayalam, Tamil, Hindi, Telugu, and Kannada.
