Mohanlal returns as an advocate after 13 year in Neru

Although the Neru team has not revealed much about the story, Mohanlal plays an advocate after 13 years in Neru. The project also marks Priyamani’s reunion with the superstar after the success of their 2012 crime thriller, Grandmaster. This is the first time that she is collaborating with director Jeethu Joseph.

Neru also stars Siddique, Jagadish, Ganesh Kumar, and others in key roles. Satheesh Kurup is the director of photography, while Vishnu Shyam has composed the songs and the original score. VS Vinayak has handled the editing, and Antony Perumbavoor is the producer.

The Lucifer star and Priyamani are both depicted in their court robes on the most recent movie poster, which Mohanlal unveiled.

The film is written by KR Krishnakumar, who had previously worked with him on 12th Man and Kooman. Additional details about the film’s plot are still under wraps.
