Nivin Pauly was not kidding when he said that Saturday Night fits in the genre he is most comfortable in – entertainers. But there seems to be so much more to the film than just that. While humour and crazy moments between the friends were what its trailer revealed, the glimpses of the movie from its lyrical video of its first track Nilaathumbi Nee promises a movie with soul and a free-spirited protagonist.

The track, composed by Jakes Bejoy and rendered by Vijay Yesudas, was released on Thursday night by the team through their social media pages. While the snaps featured in the video show its colourful and vibrant characters essayed by Nivin Pauly, Siju Wilson, Saiju Kurup, Aju Varghese and Saniya Iyappan, it also serves as an ode to the carefree way of living, which its protagonist Stanley seems to have embraced.

Nilaathumbi Nee is penned by Joe Paul, a frequent collaborator of Jakes and their previous compositions such as Ilam Poove and Parayuvan had topped charts when the tracks were released. Nilaathumbi Nee too is expected to follow suit. The video of the track also gives us a few glimpses from the road trip and experiences of the gang.

In an earlier interview with OTTplay, Nivin said, “It’s an all-out entertainer. I am sure the audience will enjoy it. The visuals have all come out great. The movie involves travel to a lot of unexplored terrains.”

Shot in Dubai, Kerala and Karnataka, the film marks the second collaboration between Nivin and director Rosshan Andrrews. Saturday Night is scripted by Naveen Bhaskar, who had written Anuraga Karikkin Vellam and Monsoon Mangoes.

Meanwhile, Saturday Night, which was supposed to be a September 30 release, has been pushed by a week. A source from the team told OTTplay that the post-production work of the film had caused the delay. There are also reports that Mammootty’s Rorschach will also hit theatres on October 7.
