Prithviraj Sukumaran’s first direct-to-OTT release will hit Amazon Prime Video. The star’s investigative thriller, which was long rumoured to take an OTT route, will release on the streaming platform on June 30.
The movie, directed by Tanu Balak, is an investigative thriller that was shot in Thiruvananthapuram when the lockdown rules were eased last year. The movie is backed by the makers of Fahadh’s Irul, which had also chosen a direct-to-OTT route for its release on Netflix a few months ago.

Apart from the star, the movie also has Aditi Balan, Athmiya and Suchitra Pillai in pivotal roles. “A new case, a new mystery, and your cop is back on duty!” read the caption of the post from Amazon Prime Video, announcing the Malayalam film’s OTT release.
Apart from Cold Case, the makers of the Malayalam remake of Andhadhun titled Bhramam, which also has Prithviraj in the lead, are also reported to be in talks for an OTT release.
Meanwhile, Prithviraj has also completed the shoot of Manu Warrier’s Kuruthi. The socio-political thriller, which is also produced by the star, has an ensemble cast featuring Roshan Mathew, Murali Gopy, Shine Tom Chacko and Srinda. He is also part of Rathish Ambat’s Theerppu and Dijo Jose Antony’s Jana Gana Mana.
