The story commences with Kerala CM Achuthan Nair (Prakash Raj) and his party gearing up for their third term in the state assembly. While the opposition is facing the heat for not having a candidate for the CM's seat in the impending elections, their superiors in Delhi submit a name in a sealed cover which unfolds a drama to stay ahead of the pack of wolves.


The film is produced by PA Sebastian under Time Ads Entertainment and is written by Anoop Menon himself. Gopi Sunder and Ninoy Varghese scored the music for the thriller which has cinematography by the renowned technician Ravichandran. Ayoob Khan edited the film. The Malayalam original, which hit screens in October 2022, opened to mixed responses from critics and audiences.

“Varaal is Anoop Menon’s take on contemporary Kerala politics and involves elaborate honey traps, betrayals and an unnecessary dose of Islamic terrorism as a means of distraction.
