Malayalam actor Amith Chakalakkal’s first release in over a year is all set to hit theatres in January. Theru, which is helmed by SJ Sinu, marks his second collaboration with the director, who had also helmed his previous film Djibouti.

The upcoming film, which is a police thriller, also has Baburaj, Kalabhavan Shajohn, Sminu Sijo, Vijayaraghavan, Prashanth Alexander and Sanju Sivram. Amith essays the role of a social media video producer, who is in line to join the police force when an incident makes him and his friends flee from the law.

In an earlier interview with OTTplay, the Vaarikkuzhiyile Kolapathakam actor said, “The movie revolves around an issue that every youngster in Kerala faces when they are on the road. It touches upon the harassment they face from police or the government and mirrors the reality in the society.”


The film is yet another socially-relevant tale that the actor is part of, after Yuvam back in 2020. The actor had revealed that he connects better with movies that deal with incidents people encounter in their daily lives. The shoot of Theru had begun in Palakkad in 2021 and wrapped up the same year. The makers had to wait for over a year for the film to get a proper release date in theatres. Theru, which is written by Dinil PK, has Yakzan and Neha as its composers and TD Sreenivas as the film’s cinematographer.

Theru is currently set to hit theatres on January 6. It will clash with Suraj Venjaramoodu’s Ennalum Ente Aliya in theatres in Kerala. The latter, which is directed by Bash Mohammed, is a family entertainer that also has Siddique, Gayathri Arun, Lena, Meera Nandan and Sudheer Paravoor in pivotal roles.

Bash, in a recent interview with us, had said that the film will make the audience laugh in theatres, even though it deals with a serious subject.
