Arjun Ashokan and Jagadish’s Theeppori Benny, which was released in the cinemas on September 22, has now made its way to OTT - streaming on Amazon Prime Video. Directed by Joji Thomas, the movie revolves around the lives of Benny (Arjun) and his father Vattakuttayil Chettayi (Jagadish), who is a communist leader. The quirky political satire marks the first collaboration between Arjun and Jagadish, who previously shared screen space with Arjun’s father, veteran actor Harishree Ashokan, in many iconic Malayalam films.

Theeppori Benny - starring Arjun Ashokan and Jagadish - is available to stream on Amazon Prime Video from today (November 17). The film makes its OTT debut after a successful run in the theatres, garnering positive response from the audience.

Jagadish on his role in Theeppori Benny

Veteran actor Jagadish, who has appeared in some interesting roles since his comeback two years ago, is seen in a completely different avatar in this political satire. He plays an honest communist leader in Theeppori Benny. 

In an earlier interview with OTTplay, Jagadish said, “Vattakuttayil Chettayi is someone who doesn’t own any footwear, because he has taken a vow that until the problems faced by everyone around him are solved and their way of living improves, he won’t wear shoes. He has a unique way of thinking. But this often leads to a difference of opinion with his son, who urges him to make money and not keep losing what they have for the sake of other people.”
