Meanwhile, another film that was set to release on a streaming service but has decided to take the theatrical route is Mohanlal and Shaji Kailas’ Alone, which will release in December. The movie is a pandemic thriller that has Mohanlal as the only actor in the film while Prithviraj and Manju Warrier have lent their voice for other characters.
