Sesham Mikeil Fathima trailer: Kalyani breaks all stereotypes
The makers of the film released the trailer recently, which has been received positively by audiences. Fathima (Kalyani) is known as a 'chatterbox' with a passion for football. She seizes the opportunity to be a commentator for a local football tournament, gaining the admiration of town folk.
