Every time director Alphonse Puthren comes out with a film, the audience knows now to expect refreshing content, despite the Premam filmmaker claiming it’s again a film with no novelty whatsoever. The teaser of his latest film Gold, starring Prithviraj Sukumaran and Nayanthara, promised pretty much the same.
While the teaser only revealed a bit about the characters the lead actors will be playing, in typical Alphonse style, it’s the credits and sequences that probably didn’t have any connection to the film’s storyline that has got the audience excited.
The movie has an ensemble cast – with Roshan Mathew, Chemban Vinod, Saiju Kurup, Deepti Sati, Shanti Krishna, Ajmal Ameer, Lalu Alex and Baburaj being a few playing pivotal characters. But that’s not all, the credits also show that the film will have guest appearances “from a bunch of actors”. Who they are, we might have to wait to find out till the film hits theatres.
One thing is for sure, many from Premam including Shabareesh Varma, Krishna Sankar, Vinay Forrt, Justin John and Althaf Salim are already part of the movie; could Nivin Pauly too be appearing in a cameo? The teaser also had a few snippets including one with a butterfly, a motif that Alphonse had used frequently in Premam.
On the movie, Ajmal Ameer had earlier told OTTplay, “It had a unique genre. Gold is a full-on, fun-packed film filled with interesting characters and situational comedy. It’s a film that people across age groups will be able to enjoy.”
Gold also marks Alphonse's first film since Premam released in 2015. The director has also worked on its script, editing, stunts, visual effects, animation and colour grading. The movie’s teaser will be screened in theatres across Kerala from March 25.
