Achayans, the Malayalam comedy film, written and directed by Kannan Thamarakkulam is finally going to hit cinema screens tomorrow on May 19th. The film was initially scheduled for release on May 12 last Friday but had to be pushed back by a week because of the unavailability of cinema screens in Kerala because of Baahubali 2: The Conclusion consistently running to packed houses and the makers thought it was economical to postpone the release. Two other Malayalam films too had to push their release dates owing to Baahubali’s epic run at the box office.
But now the film is finally up for release tomorrow. Achayans has an ensemble cast of Jayaram, Sshivada, Anu Sithara, Prakash Raj, Amala Paul, Unni Mukundan, Adil Ibrahim and Sanju Sivram among others. It has been rumoured that Mammooty stars in a guest appearance in the film.
The film is touted as a complete entertainer and follows the journey of Thottathil family as they set out on an adventure for fun and enjoyment. Two unknown girls join their journey and what ensues is a thrilling experience filled with a lot of twists and turns.
Take a look at the trailer here:
Going by the trailer the film surely looks like a free- spirited and fun ride. There is also an element of suspense weaved around the storyline.
Adil Ibrahim, who plays one of the four brothers in the family spoke about the film, “This is easily my first commercial movie. Though I did Kappiri Thuruth, it had an offbeat flavour. Achayans is a mass entertainer and I am thrilled to be part of it. I have always wanted to be in a movie with a mass appeal,” he said.
Actresses Amala Paul and Unni Mukundan have lent their voices for two tracks from the film, composed by Ratheesh Vega.
Catch the film in a theater near you from tomorrow!
