Debutant filmmaker Achu Vijayan’s crime mystery Vichithram is all set to be released on an OTT platform after over six months of its theatrical release. The movie, which also has supernatural elements, has been eagerly awaited by a lot of viewers due to how well the makers explored the relationships of a dysfunctional family.
Vichithram stars Shine Tom Chacko, Balu Varghese, Kani Kusruti, Ketaki Narayan, James Eliya, Lal and Jolly Chirayath in pivotal roles, along with a bunch of newcomers.
What is the story of Vichithram?
The movie revolves around a mother and her five sons. Ever since her husband passed away, life has been tough for Jasmine (Jolly Chirayath) with her also being estranged from her family. But after her brother passes away, she and her sons move into his mansion, which houses secrets and ghosts from the past. The events they experience in a span of 10 days form the plot of Vichithram, which is scripted by Nikhil Ravindran.

In an earlier interview with OTTplay, Achu said, “Vichithram is a crime mystery thriller that will also provide a horror experience. Horror doesn’t apply just to the presence of ghosts. The movie has several elements that will shock the audience.”
The team had paid a lot of attention to the visual treatment of the slow-burn mystery thriller as well as its sound design to ensure that the horror elements had maximum impact when the audience watched it in theatres.
When and where to watch Vichithram?
Vichithram’s OTT rights have been bought by Amazon Prime Video. On Easter, the makers announced that the film will drop on the streaming platform soon. While an official release date has not been announced, Vichithram is expected to begin streaming in April.
