KOCHI Aug 16: ‘Maniyarayile Ashokan’, a Malayalam comedy-drama movie, produced by Dulquer Salmaan’s ‘Wayfarer Films’, will be released through Netflix on August 31, 2020 which auspiciously falls on Thirvonam day.

‘Maniyarayile Ashokan’, as the name suggests, tells the story of Ashokan’s love, marriage and first night, with the story is set against the backdrop of a peaceful village.

The movie also marks Gregory’s first movie as the lead, and also the third Malayalam movie of ‘Premam’ actress Anupama Parameswaran.

Under the direction of Shamsu Saiba, the project also features Anupama as assistant director. Apart from the lead pair, the film also stars Shine Tom Chacko, Krishna Shankar, Vijayaraghavan, Indrans, Sudheesh, Sreelakshmi, Nayana and Shritha Sivadas in other important roles. The screenplay has been written by Vineeth Krishnan, while Sajad Kaku is in charge of the cinematographic department.

Following the lockdown due to Coronavirus, the cinema halls have been shut and the industry has been looking for streaming full length feature films and short films through alternatives such as Over-The-Top (OTT) media services on Internet platforms. OTT bypasses cable, broadcast, and satellite television platforms, the companies that traditionally act as a controller or distributor of such content.
