The Malayalam film Manjummel Boys is set to make its OTT debut and stream on Disney+ Hotstar on Sunday, May 5. The superhit Malayalam film not only took the Kerala box office by storm but also had a successful run in Tamil Nadu, all thanks to its connection to the 1991 cult Tamil classic film Gunaa, starring Kamal Haasan in the lead role. So, if you want to watch Gunaa before watching Manjummel Boys, you can stream it right away on OTTplay Premium.

Where to stream Gunaa before Manjummel Boys?

Gunaa served as a major inspiration for Manjummel Boys. For those who don't know, Manjummel Boys is based on real incidents where a group of boys from Kerala visit Tamil Nadu's famous Gunaa Caves. Known as Devil's Kitchen in Kodaikanal, the cave got its name after Gunaa was shot there. The iconic song Kanmani was filmed there as well. Manjummel Boys showed the group of friends exploring the Gunaa Caves until one of them accidentally fell into a deep pit, with all his friends trying to save him.


Gunaa can be streamed on Aha. The film is directed by Santhana Bharathi and is about a mentally challenged man who thinks that a fictitious character is his wife. But one day, when he meets the woman of his dreams in real life, he abducts her in order to be with her. Gunaa starred Kamal Haasan, Rekha, Roshini, Janagaraj, and others, with music by Ilaiyaaraja.
