The movie Koothara, the main attraction of which is the extended cameo by Mohanlal in a unique role, was supposed to be released on June 12 but now reports say the date has been postponed to June 13. Apparently, the team behind the movie have confirmed this though the reasons for the delay remain unknown.
The movie was originally supposed to come out on May 31, but maybe the humongous success of “Bangalore Days” at the box office, perhaps, was the reason they decided to hold off on releasing Koothara a little while longer.
Mohanlal is by and far the main attraction of the film, and it has been marketed as such, even in its
trailer – which by the way has been getting a very warm response. The fans are definitely excited about this one.
Lalettan is appearing as a fisherman, and a rather rough and weathered one at that. He speaks in a
Malabari slang and there were rumours initially that his role is a villainous one and if so, this is one
for the books, because the Universal Star hasn’t played a baddie in quite a while.
The main cast of the movie, however, are youngsters and the story revolves around three college mates and their love interests who end up on an ‘adventure’ they never bargained for. The male
leads of the flick are Sunny Wayne, Bharath and Tovino Thomas while their fellow female leads are
Janani Iyer, Bhavana, Gauthami Nair and Sritha Sivadas.
The comedic and a somewhat misleading title of the movie – Koothara – is a combination of the first letters in the names of the three youths in the movie – Kubrin, Tharun and Ram.
The trailer of the film features a voice over narration of sorts by Dulquer Salman. The story was penned by Vini Vishwa Lal and it was directed by Srinath Rajendran. The producer is Shahul Hameed Marikkar who is working under the banner of his company Marikkar productions.
