Jana Gana Mana is coming to Netflix on June 2 in Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu, and Kannada.
Talking to OTTplay about film's releasing on OTT, Prithviraj had said, " When you say OTT, you are almost making it sound like an escapist platform where you can dump stuff that doesn’t work. Even in OTTs, if people don’t say good things about the film, the film doesn’t work. It works in the same way as theatres. So, ultimately the film has to work, regardless of the medium."
Jana Gana Mana was Prithviraj’s first theatrical release after the pandemic struck and the film has received good reviews and is running to packed houses. The film is said to be one of Prithviraj’s biggest release outside Kerala, with a huge number of shows in the Middle East.
Prithviraj plays a former IPS officer and lawyer who fights a case against a police officer. Suraj plays ACP Sajjan, who has been accused of violating human rights. The rest of the star cast includes Dhruvan, Shari, GM Sundar, Shammi Thilakan, Priyanka Nair, Ilavarasu, Raja Krishnamoorthy, Shanavas, Vincy Aloshius and Vaishnavi in pivotal roles. Sharis Muhammed has penned the screenplay. Mammootty is the narrator of the film
The film will release in two parts. While Jakes Bejoy has scored the music, cinematography is by Sudeep Elamon and Sreejith has handled the editing. As for the sequel, the pre-production work has already begun. While the first part features flashback sequences, the second part features the story taking place in the present.
