Lijo Jose Pellissery, who is famous for his unconventional movies and rebellious stance surprised us today with a poster of his latest project ‘Churuli’ and now, has released the trailer of the same. We must say, it was totally unexpected and everyone is going gaga over the announcement. The film that stars Chemban Vinod Jose, Vinay Forrt and Joju George in the lead was kept under the wraps, but now that the trailer is here, we sure know what to expect.

The film has been bankrolled by Lijo himself along with Chemban Vinod Jose, co-produced by Jesto Varghese, O Thomas Panicker and Naushad Salahudin. While the story is by Vinoy Thomas, it has been adapted to screenplay by S Hareesh. It is interesting to note that both are famous novelists in Malayalam literature. Renowned cinematographer Madhu Neelakandan is the DOP and Deepu Joseph has handled the editing. Other details of the movie including its release date and the release platform are yet to be announced. Watch the trailer right here.

What’s Churuli About

The trailer starts with a female voiceover narrating the story of a phantom and a Brahmin. Parallelly, we get to see two men (Chemban Vinod Jose and Vinay Forrt) searching for someone named ‘Mayiladanparambil Joy’ in a dense forest area. We get to see various characters they encounter during the quest. The story says how the Phantom controls the Brahmin’s movements, so we think it’s metaphoric. From the trailer, the film looks surreal with its mesmerising visuals and fantasy-mystery concept. Above all, since it is an LJP film, our expectations are really high and we can’t wait to watch the film.

Why You Should Watch It:

Lijo Jose Pellissery has been consistent in delivering exceptional, experimental films with little drama and a lot of substance. His films ‘Angamaly Diaries’, ‘Ee. Ma. Yau’ and the recent one ‘Jallikkattu’ garnered a lot of attention and accolades. Chemban Vinod Jose, Vinay Forrt and Joju George may not be superstars but they have proved their mettle consistently and it will be quite interesting to see them perform together. The trailer of ‘Churuli’ also looks engrossing, and we have high hope on this one. We are eagerly waiting for LJP’s next announcement.
