THE teaser of filmmaker Ratheesh Balakrishnan Poduval’s upcoming Malayalam film Kanakam Kamini Kalaham, starring actor Nivin Pauly, was released on Friday, July 16.
The minute-long video presents the movie’s main characters against the backdrop of a play. The teaser starts with the host requesting the audience to switch off their gadgets or put them on silent. However, before he can finish his sentence a drama surfaces backstage – the lead actors are nowhere to be found.
As expected, two others from the team fill in for the main characters at the last minute. And then we see the characters of the play ‘Kanakam Kamini Kalaham’ turning around in slow motion. The comical music coupled with the backdrop set the tone for an entertaining movie.
