Veteran Malayalam actor Mammootty is all set to make his Tamil comeback with Director Ram’s latest drama. Titled Peranbu, the film has created quite a buzz within the industry even before its release. And now audiences can check out the much-awaited teaser.

The teaser of Peranbu was premiered in Chennai with popular celebrities like Siddharth, Andrea Jeremiah, Mysskin, and Sathyaraj present at the launch event. Produced by PL Thenappan under his banner Sri Rajalakshmi Films, it is a bilingual emotional drama about a father-daughter relationship that will release in Tamil and Malayalam. The cast of the film includes Anjali, Thangameengal Sadhana, Sarath Kumar, Anjali Ameer, Samuthirakani, Vadivukkarasi, Livingston, Suraj Venjaramood, and Siddique along with transsexual actor Anjali Ameer. Yuvan Shankar Raja's music is said to be one of the main highlights of the film.

From the looks of the first teaser, this film promises to win hearts with its intense emotional drama. Mammootty plays the role of a father named Amudhavan who is trying to mimic his daughter Paapa’s physical condition. His powerful monologue gives us a gist of the story that will unfold while he says, “All these years I was worried why Paapa is not like other children. But when I tried walking like her I realised comparing one person with another is brutal.”

Peranbu has already received praise internationally with its world premiere at the 47th International Rotterdam Film Festival where it was the only Indian film to feature in the top 20 in the Audience Award category. It was also an official selection at Shanghai International Film Festival and was even nominated for a NETPAC award which is given to the best Asian films.
