Churuli marks director Lijo Jose’s second collaboration with writer S Hareesh, who wrote the screenplay for hit Malayalam movie Jallikattu. The trailer opens with a woman retelling a folk tale about a rural legend and ghost living in the jungle- Perumadan, who has fun misguiding people. “He is a monster who leads everyone astray,” the woman says. She further says that a monk set out to capture Perumadan in the forest. Corresponding to her story, we see sequences from the present-day being played out. Shot in a hilly backdrop, the trailer reveals that the characters in the movie are on the lookout for a man. The trailer hints that the rest of the film might track the mysterious events that happen during the manhunt.
