Malik Trailer: Fahadh Faasil touted to be Political thriller in a communal backdrop
The film is directed by Mahesh Narayan who earlier collaborated with Fahadh in C U Soon last year. The film is slated to release on 13th May.
The trailer of actor Fahadh Faasil’s much-awaited movie Malik was released on Thursday. It seems from the trailer that director Mahesh Narayanan and his team seem to have whipped up an edge-of-the-seat political thriller in the communal backdrop.
We see two different avatars of Fahadh in the one minute and 45 seconds long video. We are first introduced to an older version of Sulaiman (Fahadh’s character in the movie) who appears to be calm, spiritual and collected despite knowing that the police are plotting to kill him. Dressed in a white mundu and shirt, he comes across as an influential person who seems unshakeable. As the trailer progresses, we see the younger version of Sulaiman.
Glimpses of Sulaiman leading political campaigns, handling crises and leading a mob, indicate that the film has political sub-plots, action sequences and drama in store for audiences.
We also see Nimisha Sajayan in two avatars, as an older woman and her younger self. The young actor has delivered several critically acclaimed films in her brief career,
The Mahesh Narayanan directorial stars Fahadh Faasil, Archit, Nimisha Sajayan and Joju George in the lead roles. Touted to be a political- actioner, Malik will also feature other actors such as Maala Parvathi, Dileesh Pothan, Divya Prabha, Salim Kumar, Indrans, Jalaja, Sarath kumar, Vijay Forrt and Sudhi Koppa in supporting roles.
The movie is bankrolled by Anto Joseph under the banner of Anto Joseph Film Company, while director Mahesh Narayanan has also written and edited the movie.
Fahadh had to undergo massive physical transformation in order to prepare for the role, and pictures of his drastic weight loss had gone viral on social media.
Sanu John Varghese is on board as the cinematographer for the venture, while Santhosh Raman is in charge of production designing. Sushin Shyam will be composing the background score and soundtracks for Malik. Govind and Sree Sankar will be handling the sound design for the project. Fans are excited to watch the action- sequences in the film since stunt director Lee Whittaker has been roped in to handle the action choreography for the film.
The principal photography for the project commenced in September 2019. Malik was filmed in several places such as Kochi and Thiruvananthapuram in Kerala and a few of the schedules also took place in Lakshadweep.
Malik is due in cinemas on May13. The film will release along with Mohanlal’s Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham and Nivin Pauly’s Thuramukham.
