Kaathal – The Core, Mammootty’s upcoming film has been the talk of the town for quite some time now. The film also features Jyothika, alongside the Kannur Squad actor, marking her return to the Malayalam film industry after a gap of 14 years.
The film is helmed by Jeo Baby, known for his 2020 film The Great Indian Kitchen. Earlier this month, the makers of the film had dropped the trailer of the film, and had also revealed that the film would be hitting the silver screens on November 23rd. With just hours remaining for its release, the makers have now dropped a pre-release teaser of the film.
Check out the teaser below:
The 50 second teaser gives an idea of what could be expected from the film. The visuals seemed to show Mammootty’s character, George Martin, stuck in between a growing dilemma, while Jyothika’s character, Omana, seemed to be coming to terms with a situation. The teaser also showed Mammootty’s daughters from the film as well. Additionally, there seemed to be a visual of a group of girls dancing, which seemed to be reminiscent of Jeo Baby’s 2020 film as well. The teaser was also accompanied by a soulful composition by Mathews Pulickan.
