Malayalam actor Tovino Thomas’ latest superhero outing on Netflix ‘Minnal Murali’ is receiving rave reviews from the audience and critics alike.
The movie is raising the bar for Malayalam cinema, and drawing parallels with Rajamouli’s superhit film ‘Eega’ which was one of the first breakout crossover films from Telugu cinema, long before ‘Baahubali’ became a national phenomenon.
‘Minnal Murali’ traces the transformation of Jaison, an ordinary small-town man, to the superhero ‘Minnal Murali’, and talks about how this event changes his life.
Produced by Weekend Blockbusters (Sophia Paul) and directed by Basil Joseph, Tovino Thomas plays the titular role of Minnal Murali alongside Guru Somasundaram, Harisree Ashokan, and Aju Varghese. The film premiered on December 24 on Netflix.
