Debutant filmmaker Mahesh Vettiyar’s satire Vellaripattanam has hit the streaming space within a month of its theatrical release. The movie, which has Manju Warrier and Soubin Shahir in the lead, released now out on OTT.
The movie, which also has Krishna Sankar, Shabareesh Varma, Salim Kumar and Veena Nair, is a political satire that had hit theatres in March.
What is Vellaripattanam about?
Vellaripattanam has Manju Warrier essaying the role of Sunanda, an independent woman, who is often at loggerheads with her brother Suresh, played by Soubin Shahir. The latter also has similar aims in his life but doesn’t possess the smarts that Sunanda does and this often becomes the bone of contention between the duo. How the duo enters the political fray and unite against a common enemy and bring their rivals down form the plot of the film.
The movie had Manju Warrier, who started off the year with Ayisha and Thunivu, dabbling with comedy once again. While the film’s plot falls flat and becomes predictable, critics hailed Manju and Soubin’s performances – especially their chemistry as siblings.
In an earlier interview with us, Manju said that she’s game for all kinds of roles now. “It all depends on how convincingly it will be made for the screen. I am open to all kinds of films,” she said.
Meanwhile, Soubin is also set for his upcoming release Ayalvaashi, which hits theatres on Friday. The actor will once again be seen in a feel-good entertainer, in the role of a middle-aged man who starts a quarrel with his neighbour, essayed by Binu Pappu. The movie, which is helmed by Irshad Parari, also has Nikhila Vimal, Lijomol Jose and Naslen as part of the cast.
