Malayalam star Tovino Thomas is basking within the success of his newest film Minnal Murali. The Netflix movie has garnered unanimous reward for being a feel-good, grounded and engrossing superhero film.
Earlier, in an interview, Tovino revealed that the sequel to Minnal Murali would rely on the type of response that the superhero movie generates. “It all depends on the response and feedback we get for Minnal Murali, and then we will plan for a sequel, but we would love to do it though,” director Basil Joseph informed India At present, including that there’s an concept for the follow-up movie already in place.
Throughout an unique interplay with indianexpress.com earlier, Basil had defined how he designed a vesti-clad superhero, rooted in Kerala’s life-style and tradition. “We can’t just make a movie for the genre’s sake. It’s not like since we’re doing a superhero movie, we should have all the flashy VFX and action sequences. We had budget restrictions, which translate into technical restrictions. Yes, we have good technicians. And for a Malayalam film, this has a big budget. There will be a comparison to international superhero movies, so we had to make sure first we have a good script. The story should have a strong base emotionally and be relatable to the audience. And on top of that, we had to make sure that the action sequences and VFX convincingly gel with the basic screenplay. What we thought is even without the superhero element, the film should work.”
Apart from Tovino Thomas, Minnal Murali additionally stars Guru Somasundaram, who performs the supervillain.
