Najeem Koya’s directorial debut 'Kaly', like the posters hinted, seems to be a fun packed entertainer and the trailer released on Tuesday has already created a buzz.

Kaly’s trailer has caught the internet’s attention for taking a dig at Union minister of State Alphons Kannanthanam for his remarks on the fuel price hike.

Union Minister of State for IT and tourism Alphons Kannanthanam had in September last year justified fuel price hike saying, “Vehicle owners are not starving, can afford to pay”.  

The trailer of the film set in a petrol pump shows the actors jumping out of a tempo and asking the petrol pump attendant to fill a full tank meanwhile taking a dig at the minister’s remarks that ‘fuel hike is for building toilets’.

“Sister as brother (kannanthanam) said fill a full tank enough to build a toilet”, the opening dialogue of the trailer says.

Minister Alphons Kannanthanam has earlier said that the fuel hike is to divert funds for 'PM Modi’s dream for the poor in India and will be used to construct toilets and dwellings for the under privileged'. Minister’s comments on the price hike had come at a time when the fuel prices were at a three-year high even as international crude prices had crashed. 

The film is screenwriter turned director Najeem Koya’s first directorial debut. Written and directed by Najim, 'Kaly' is produced under the banner of August Cinemas and has music by Rahul Raj.

A previous trailer of the movie had poked fun at Sheela Alphons, Alphons Kannanthanam's wife.
