Director Krishand’s upcoming movie Purusha Pretham, which is a direct-to-OTT releases, promises to be another whacky crime-comedy that revolves around a set of quirky characters who find themselves in unusual circumstances.

The makers of the film, which is set to release on Sony LIV, unveiled its first trailer on Thursday and also announced the movie’s release date. The trailer mostly focused on its key characters essayed by Prashanth Alexander and Darshana Rajendran.

Prashanth essays the role of cop, who has a toxic personality, but is also someone who commands the respect of his colleagues due to his intimidating nature. But what happens after an unidentified corpse goes missing take the plot of the movie forward. This incident also further unravels the sub-inspector’s secrets and has huge ramifications on his personal and professional life.


In an earlier interview with OTTplay, Krishand said, “It’s a slow-burner comedy. I have tried to make a crime noir but as a police procedural with humour.” The filmmaker also explained that the movie would connect more with people “in an urban space”. “It’s the type of film that people would enjoy if they connect with the audience,” he said. “It has a political statement but it’s wrapped in several layers of humour.”

Krishand has also cranked the camera for the movie, which is based on a story by Manu Thodupuzha. “I have tried a kind of graphic-design exploration through this film’s cinematography. That’s the prime reason I decided to be the DOP for this movie,” he said.

Scripted by Ajith Haridas, the film also has Devaki Rajendran, Maala Parvathy, James Elia, Sanju Sivaram, Geethi Sangeetha and Sreenath Babu. Purusha Pretham is currently set to release on Sony LIV on March 24. Incidentally, Krishand’s previous movie Aavasvyuham is also streaming on the same OTT platform. Purusha Pretham will also be available on OTTplay Premium from March 24 onwards.
