The trailer of Malayalam superstar Mammootty’s next feature Masterpiece was released on December 1 and it has already garnered over 1 million views.

Mammootty plays Edward Livingston, a professor in a college, who is determined to teach his students some hard lessons.

Based on the trailer, the film looks like a mass entertainer. Livingston lives by his rules and is in college to make sure that his students get their lessons right and is willing to go to any extent to achieve his goals. By the end of the trailer, it seems that Livingston wins over his students’ hearts and persuades them to chase their dreams.

The film also boasts of an immensely talented ensemble cast, with Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, Unni Mukundan, Maqbool Salmaan, Santhosh Pandit and Mahima Nambiar playing pivotal roles.

The movie was shot in Fathima College, Kollam, and features many ‘heroic’ elements. Sources associated with the film claim that there will be several thrilling action sequences in it. Mammootty, as Livingston, dressed in a blue shirt and a pair of dark glasses, inspires awe in the trailer.

Masterpiece, directed by Ajai Vasudev, is set to release in around 250 theatres in Kerala on December 21. The fact that it is hitting so many theatres in its first week is being viewed as a record of sorts.

Masterpiece’s action sequences were choreographed by Stunt Silva, Kanal Kannan, Siruthai Ganesh, Jolly Bastian and Mafia Sasi. Deepak Dev has scored the music for the film. The script has been written by Uday Krishna, who had co-written Mohanlal’s blockbuster Pulimurgan.

The Malayalam megastar’s last film, Pullikkaran Staraa, dealt with a similar subject – he played an instructor in a teacher’s training institute.

Vasudev’s directorial debut, Rajadhi Raja, which released in 2014, also starred Mammootty in the lead and was a success at the box office.
