Among the big names of upcoming releases, a small-sized coming-of-age tale Super Sharanya has also been gaining attention since the release of its track Ashubha Mangalakaari. The Anaswara Rajan starrer is sure to make an impact on the audience for more than one reason. The cast, crew and the posters released to date have all been strong elements that added up to the expectation for the movie. It is also to be noted that director Girish A D has donned his director’s hat once again for the movie, after the success of Thanneer Mathan Dinangal.

As the movie is a day away from its release date, here is everything you need to know before watching Super Sharanya.

What is Super Sharanya about?

From the trailer and the songs, the movie appears to be a campus drama, centering around Anaswara’s titular character Sharanya. She seems to be navigating her campus life, her friends, seniors and her love interest, played by Arjun Ashokan, and much more. The movie appears to be a narrative from a woman’s perspective.

The recently released trailer and the hit song Ashubha Mangalaari depict the tone of the movie to be easy-going, relatable, and emotional. The drama is sure to touch upon many themes. The portrayal of the hostel life of girls in the song has been the talk of the town, as the lyrics and visuals were something that could entertain anyone.

What does the director say?

Director Girish is all set to present his heroine Sharanya, whom he hails to be different from other female protagonists. “I wanted to do a film where the protagonist is a girl and showed her perspective with all her flaws and quirks,” he said to OTTplay in an exclusive interview earlier. 

He also explained that his woman protagonist will be shown through her everyday lives, unlike the other women-centric films with shallow roles for female protagonists. 

With Thanner Mathan Dinangal in his kitty, the director has already proven his luck with the youth-centric genre, which is why Super Sharanya becomes something to be eagerly looked forward to.

Who are the main leads of the movie?

The film is led by Anaswara Rajan and Arjun Ashokan. Anaswara has already proven herself to be a fan with her natural acting in Girish’s Thanneer Mathan Dinangal. The young actress has also been part of movies like Vaanku, Adhyarathri, Udhaharanam Sujatha, and much more, and set her benchmark. As seen in the trailer and the songs, Anaswara seems to be the perfect protagonist crafted by Girish, whom we meet in our everyday lives. She seems to handle the flaws of a teenager with her mild yet strong emotions, which is another reason to wait for the movie.

On the other hand, Arjun Ashokan is a big name that could not be missed from contemporary Malayalam cinema. The actor plays the love interest of Sharanya, who appears to be an everyday man as well. For anyone who has been tracking today’s Malayalam cinema, Arjun’s performance in movies like Jan E Man, Madhuram and Ajagajantharam have taken the audience by surprise, only increasing the expectations from the actor.

Who are the cast and crew?

Written and directed by Girish, the film is backed by Shebin Backer and Girish. The music is composed by Justin Varghese, while the cinematography is by Sajith Purushan. 

Apart from Anaswara and Arjun, the movie also has Mamitha Baiju, Naslen K Gafoor, Bindhu Panicker, Manikandan Pattambi, Vineeth Vishwam, Sajin Cherukayil and Varun Dhara playing important roles. 

When will Super Sharanya release?

The movie will be out theatrically tomorrow, on January 7, 2022.
