Trailer Talk: Mallu Megastar Makes A Baahubalian Effort

After Rajamouli unleashed his beast mode through Baahubali franchise,  many directors, heroes and production houses are actually running after that VFX grandeur to tell some great stories. Surprisingly none of them has succeeded as many films from Tamil, Hindi and other languages failed to make Baahubali range impact.

In what looks like a Malayali version of 'Thugs Of Hindostan' movie, now Mallu Megastar Mohan Lal is coming up with the film "Marakkar", the story a sea warrior and commander of a Kerala king's navy in around 1500 AD, who helps defend the kingdom from invading Portuguese people. And with a huge star cast including that of Arjun, Sunil Shetty, Keerthy Suresh, Manju Warrier, Suhasini and Kalyani Priyadarshan, the film is high on action sequences and the quality of the visual effects is looking tremendously good.

What is more shocking after watching this trailer is that the film is directed by Priyadarshan who has directed so many comedy and romantic comedies throughout his career. One wonders that the senior director has so much talent in him to make these biggies but churned out only slapstick comedies all these days.

Can this film succeed like a Baahubali at the box office? Hope it does, because the success of such films encourages filmmakers to come up with more epics. Marakkar hits cinemas on March 26, 2020.
