Tovino Thomas' highly-anticipated action drama, Minnal Murali will skip the theatrical release and go for a direct OTT release. The film will be releasing on the Netflix platform very soon and the official announcement on the direct OTT release was made this morning (September 6). Apart from the original Malayalam version, the film will also be released in Tamil, Telugu, Hindi, Kannada, and English, as dubbed versions. This announcement has created a huge buzz on social media. The fans who were expecting to witness this film on the big screens have expressed their disappointment over the OTT release.

Minnal Murali will be Netflix India's next big project in South cinema after Dhanush's Jagame Thandhiram and Mani Ratnam's Navarasa. The fans have pinned high hopes on the project and it is expected to showcase Tovino Thomas in a completely different dimension. It has been quite some time since we saw a film of this kind in Malayalam and it promises to be an exciting watch. An official announcement on the exact release date of Minnal Murali is yet to be made. Minnal Murali is directed by Basil Joseph and has cinematography handled by Sameer Thahir.

Produced by Sophia Paul under the banner of Weekend Blockbusters, the film is written by Arun Anirudhan and Justin Mathew. While Tovino will be seen playing the titular character, the film will also have Guru Somasundaram, Aju Varghese, Harisree Ashokan, Femina George, Baiju Santhosh, and Bijukuttan playing supporting roles. Livingston Mathew has edited the movie. Tovino Thomas was last seen in the intense action drama, Kala, directed by Rohith VS. The film which featured Lal and Divya Pillai in pivotal roles, received highly positive reviews from the critics and general audience.

Tovino will be looking forward to continuing the success streak with Minnal Murali, as well. For now, check out the official announcement on the Netflix OTT release of Tovino Thomas' Minnal Murali here:
