With Kanakam Kaamini Kalaham that is now streaming on Disney+ Hotstar, Nivin Pauly had his first release in over two years. His first theatrical release this year though will be Rajeev Ravi’s big budget period drama Thuramukham that is slated for a December release. The makers confirmed its release date recently.

The film, which is set during the 30s, 40s and 50s, has an ensemble cast featuring Nivin Pauly, Indrajith Sukumaran, Arjun Ashokan, Darshana Rajendran, Nimisha Sajayan, Poornima Indrajith and Joju George in pivotal roles.

What is Thuramukham’s story?

The period film, scripted by Gopan Chidambaram, revolves around the chappa system that existed during the 40s in Cochin ports where a coin is tossed in the air by owners and labourers had to fight among themselves to grab it for the right to work. The film has Nivin playing a character named Moidu, who is based out of Mattanchery, while Joju will be seen as Mymoo. Thuramukham is adapted by Gopan from a play, written by his father KM Chidambaram.

When is Thuramukham releasing?

Nivin had this week exclusively confirmed to OTTplay that the film will be a theatrical release in December and that its team were in discussions with theatre exhibitors to decide on a release date. While December 10 was initially pitched, with Marakkar’s release on December 2, we hear that Thuramukham will hit theatres on December 24, a day before Christmas. This will put it in direct clash with Mammootty’s Puzhu, which is also set for a December 23 release. Thuramukham is expected to release on OTT platforms by February 2022.
