Expectations for Koode have been very high for various reasons but the most notable among them are that the film has Prithviraj playing the lead role and Nazriya Nazim staging a comeback after four years. Further, the fact that it is directed by Anjali Menon, whose last outing was the hit film Bangalore Days that had Nazriya as the woman lead, is another big reason to look forward to Koode.

The film has gone through the censor certification process and has been certified with the clean U. With this done, Koode is now all set to hit the silver screens on July 14. The film revolves around siblings, played by Prithviraj and Nazriya. It also stars director Ranjith and Maala Parvathy in pivotal roles along with Parvathi, Roshan Mathew, Atul Kulkarni, Darshana Rajendran and Siddharth Menon.

In an interview to the Hindu, Maala Parvathi explained why her character in the movie, Lily, is special for her. “A dream come true, that is what Lily is all about. I felt I was in wonderland and Anjali had encouraged me to go down the rabbit hole to explore a new universe. Now, I feel, I have arrived in tinsel town. Anjali’s validation of my act has given me the confidence that the silver screen is my space. It has got rid of my insecurities and lack of confidence in my acting skills,” she said.

Written and directed by Anjali Menon, Koode is bankrolled by Renjith under the banner Rejaputhra Visual Media and Little Films India. While M Jayachandran is composing the tunes for the songs, Raghu Dixit will be scoring the BGM. The other technical crew of the film includes Littil Swayamp for cinematography, Praveen Prabhakar for editing, Arvind Ashok Kumar for production designing, Pampa Biswas for costume designing and Mitta Antony for makeup.

On working in the film, Nazriya said in an interview to Scroll.in, “Koode is a family film about relationships, which is what Anjali does best. The film is about the good and the bad in families. I play Jenny, Prithviraj’s sister. I was a bit hesitant to work with him because I didn’t really know him off screen and in the film we’re meant to share this really close bond. I shared this concern with Anjali and she set up an iMessage group to help us all get to know each other. By the end, Prithviraj became like a brother in real life too.”
