After the failures of his two big theatrical releases – Priyadarshan’s Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham and B Unnikrishnan’s Aaraattu, the next theatrical film of Mohanlal is awaited by bated breath by his fans, especially with his contemporaries such as Mammootty and Suresh Gopi having big hits in 2022 already with movies such as Bheeshma Parvam and Paappan, respectively.

The 2022 pooja season was to mark the clash of the veteran superstars with Mammootty’s Rorschach, Mohanlal’s Monster and Suresh Gopi’s Mei Hoom Moosa going head-to-head, reminding many fans of the box office battles of the 90s and early 2000s. However, that seems unlikely with the team of Monster, which was initially set for a September 29 release, backing out of the festive race and looking at an October or November release.

Mohanlal, however, did share an update about the thriller, which is directed by Vyaskh and scripted by Udaykrishna. The actor, on Thiruvonam day, released another poster from the film featuring his character Lucky Singh, complete in his Sikh avatar. While there have been several rumours about what kind of thriller the film is, the makers have managed to keep the suspense under wraps with the filmmaker as well as the supporting cast including Honey Rose, Sudev Nair and Lakshmi Manchu revealing that the movie is one of the most different films that they have been part of.

Mohanlal in an earlier interview with OTTplay told us that the second half of the film is packed with twists, while Udaykrishna had mentioned to us that it’s an experimental script that is different from anything that he or Vysakh has tried so far.

While the movie’s release date has been delayed further, Mohanlal’s next movie could be Shaji Kailas’ Alone, which could drop on a leading OTT platform during the pooja season. The film is also a thriller, which is set during the pandemic lockdown.
