Churuli Trailer: Lijo Jose Pelliserry's movie is haunting and surreal
No trailer announcement, no promotion and the trailer is age-restricted too. But still, the filmmaker can't be ignored it's another masterpiece on the way.
After the announcement of Lijo Jose Pellissery unapologetically announced that he is going to be an independent filmmaker and release his film in any platform the director was criticized by the Malayalam film fraternity. Yet the path-breaking filmmaker released his upcoming film Churuli and stunned the criticizes.
The trailer is quite intriguing and haunting. It starts with the narration of an old tale of a Brahmin who ventured into the forest in search of a phantom named Perumadan. While the narration wee sees a swirl placed down the staircase giving it a surreal effect.
But the ancient tale is narrated by showing us an incident which occurs at the contemporary timeline. So if it’s a Brahmin in the voiceover, the characters played by Vinay Forrt and Chemban Vinod Jose are shown to be eclipsing the same activities of the Brahmin. But instead of the phantom, they seem to be on the lookout for a person named Mayiladanparambil Joy.
The film looks like a spiritual successor of Lijo's previous film Jallikattu. The trailer lasting impact because of its visuals especially two twins in the jungle wearing illuminated masks and an old lady in a chatta and mundu running behind Vinay Forrt.
The A-rated (above 18 years) movie does not come with a release date or any additional information on whether it will release on OTT. This supernatural thriller set in the forests will feature LJP regulars such as Chemban Jose Vinod and Jaffer Idukki, apart from Vinay Forrt and Joju George.
