After a good month-long run in theatres, director Akhil Sathyan’s Pachuvum Athbutha Vilakkum is all set for its OTT release. The Fahadh Faasil-starrer marked the actor’s return to comedy after a gap for over three years and was well received by the family audience, despite running in theatres along with Tovino Thomas and Asif Ali’s blockbuster 2018.

Pachuvum Athbutha Vilakkum, which also stars Viji Venkatesh, Anjana Jayaprakash, Althaf Salim, Mukesh, Innocent, Indrans and Vineeth in pivotal roles, marked Fahadh’s first theatrical release this year.

The film revolves around the journey of a youngster named Prashanth aka Pachu, who runs an ayurveda franchisee in Mumbai.

In an earlier interview with us, Akhil said that he was a huge fan of Fahadh’s humour-oriented roles. “The characters that you see in Oru Indian Pranayakatha and Njan Prakashan is how he is in real life,” says Akhil. “I have always felt that whenever people cast him roles, because he is an extremely talented actor, they give him complex, intense roles. But he explores humour roles equally well and not many people have tasked him with such characters.”

The movie, which marks the Malayalam debut for Viji Venkatesh, Dhwani Rajesh and Anjana Jayaprakash, also has a several cameos including that of Shruti Hariharan, Ahaana Krishna and Naslen.
