Mohanlal took to his social media to announce that release date of the 4K version of Spadikam
The wait for Aadu Thoma’s comeback is over! Director Bhadran Mattel, who has been working on the revised 4K version of the superhit for the past few years, has announced that the movie is ready and set to hit theatres soon.
Soon after the press meet held in Kochi, Mohanlal, himself, took to his social media page on Tuesday to announce the release date of the 4K version of the film, which had him play one of his most iconic characters – Aadu Thoma.
The actor said that the popular character of Aadu Thoma, from the movie that released 28 years ago, is set to release once again, but this time ensuring that all the technological advancements have been accounted for.
“Spadikam 4K Atmos will be released in theatres worldwide on February 9, 2023,” he wrote. “Remember, 28 years ago, it was during such a Thursday that all of you welcomed Aadu Thomas into your hearts.” He ended the post with the character’s dialogue – “Appol enganaa… Urappikaavo? (So, how about it… can we confirm?”
The movie, which hit theatres in 1995, revolved around the relationship between a quarry owner Thomas Chacko aka Aadu Thoma and his father Chacko mash. The late actor Thilakan played the latter in the movie, which also starred Urvashi, Spadikam George, Nedumudi Venu, KPAC Lalitha, Ashokan, Chippy and Rajan P Dev.
Spadikam has served as reference for several young actors including Tamil actor Karthi, who had quoted it as an inspiration for his character in Viruman this year. Bhadran had put on hold his directorial projects including Shane Nigam Eo to digitally remaster the film and release the 4K version. The initial plan was to release it in theatres during Onam 2020 but the pandemic played spoilsport.
Spadikam is one of Mohanlal’s popular ‘mass’ entertainers and is sure to draw a huge crowd when the movie is released in theatres next year. Spadikam is available to stream on Disney+ Hotstar and MX Player.
