The superhero action film, directed by Basil Joseph of “Kettyolannu Ente Malakha” fame, will premiere worldwide on December 24.

The streamer announced the release date of the film on its official Twitter handle.

The film was initially slated for a theatrical release in 2020 but was postponed multiple times due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Set in the ‘90s, Minnal Murali is the origin story of Jaison, an ordinary man-turned-superhero (Thomas), who is struck by a bolt of lightning which bestows him with special powers.

Produced by Weekend Blockbusters (Sophia Paul), the film also features Guru Somasundaram, Harisree Ashokan and Aju Varghese in pivotal roles.

The film will premiere in Malayalam with dubs in Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Hindi and English.
