Mammootty’s Gangster has been certified as only for Adults Only audiences. Not to worry, the certification is not about vulgar sexual content; it’s more about the violence and profane language used by the criminal element in the plot.
Since the daring and rather different flick by Aashiq Abu, with a moderate runtime of 137 minutes, could not be made without the so called ‘rude’ stuff, the board has not asked that any of it be cut from the movie.
Kairali TV has bagged the satellite rights for the film and this is an interesting development because Mammotty, the star of the movie, is also the Chairman of the channel network.
The film also has none of the usual aspects of a normal action/crime drama like item numbers –in fact the only song in the movie is more of a devotional song, which was released on the director Aashiq Abu’s Facebook page a few days back and has gone viral since.
The very current and popular Malayalam band, Thaikkodam Bridge did the promotional music of the film and with that feather in its cap too, this motion picture just seems to be raising the bar high in trendsetting in Mollywood.
With its release in over 120 screens worldwide, the movie has already won half the battle with fans eagerly on the wait for the big day –April 11th.
