Mohanlal’s Monster seems to have finally landed a release date. The movie, which was initially expected to release in theatres worldwide during the pooja holidays, is now looking at a Diwali date!

The Vysakh directorial, which is touted to be an experimental investigative thriller, is scripted by Udaykrishna and has Mohanlal playing the role of a military officer named Lucky Singh. Honey Rose, Sudev Nair and Lakshmi Manchu are also part of the film, which is produced by Aashirvad Cinemas.

In an earlier interview with us, Mohanlal had said that the film is different from his previous collaboration with director Vysakh and scriptwriter Udaykrishna – Pulimurugan. The upcoming movie is packed with twists in the second half and is an interesting movie that is sure to keep the fans in tenterhooks, he had said last year, after completing the shoot of the movie.

There were several rumours earlier this year that much like Aashirvaad Cinemas’ previous productions – Drishyam 2, Bro Daddy and 12th Man, Monster too would be an OTT release. However, talks with the streaming services seem to have fell through and the makers were forced to look for a theatrical release for the movie.

Vysakh, however, was confident that the movie had enough to keep the audience entertainer. “Every twist in the movie presents a new mode of entertainment,” he had said in an exclusive interview with OTTplay earlier this year. “Though it belongs to the thriller genre, it serves up entertainment to the audience and that’s why I feel it will work on both OTTs and theatres because of the strength of its content.”

Mohanlal, meanwhile, is also gearing up for the release of Shaji Kailas’ Alone, which is set to drop on a streaming platform soon. The movie, which is a pandemic thriller, is a single-actor film that also features the voices of Prithviraj Sukumaran and Manju Warrier.
