KOCHI: The teaser of Malayalam superstar Nivin Pauly’s upcoming film Kanakam Kamini Kalaham (Kakaaka) has received an overwhelming response from the audience.
The minute-long video has so far received over 1.2 million views on YouTube and is slated to be a comic adventure full of “surreal humour”.
The movie produced by Nivin himself under his banner Pauly Jr Pictures is directed by Ratheesh Balakrishnan Poduval.
“For those who have been watching dark movies in this Covid depressing times, Nivin Pauly’s #Kakaaka is a relief. Waiting to see the movie on screen,” said Rajesh SP on Twitter.
“Quite stoked. Looking forward,” wrote entertainment journalist Haricharan Pudipeddi.
The teaser which was released on July 16, presents the movie’s main characters including Nivin against the backdrop of a play. The teaser starts with the host requesting the audience to switch off their phones or put them on silent. However, a drama surfaces backstage – the lead actors are nowhere to be found. Meanwhile, two others from the team fill in for the main characters at the last minute.
Kakaaka teaser promises another unique comic adventure from the filmmaker who won much praise for his directorial debut Android Kunjappan.
“Malayalam cinema is coming up with interesting premises and this one seems to be one among them,” wrote Anusha Sundar, the senior correspondent at entertainment website Silverscreen.in.
Apart from Nivin, the film also has Grace Antony, and Vinay Forrt. The other cast members include Sudheesh, Jaffer Idukki, Joy Mathew, Sivadasan Kannur and others.
